Wellington could be about to land another big film, with the makers of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and the producer of Lord of the Rings preparing to bring the Loch Ness monster to the big screen. Lord of the Rings' American producer Barrie Osborne is believed to be behind the upcoming production dubbed The Waterhorse. It is understood to be in the final stage of securing finance from Walden Media. The US media company reportedly "delighted" with the success of Andrew Adamson's The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is already shooting The Bridge to Terabithia in Auckland with Walt Disney Pictures.
