Thousands of cricket fans will get the chance to grunt, stomp and scream their way into the next Lord Of The Rings film.

Cricket fans go into battle for the Rings
During the tea break at Saturday's one-day cricket international in Wellington, New Zealand, Rings sound technicians will get the crowd to make battle noises to be used in the second film of the trilogy, The Two Towers.

According to New Zealand newspaper the Evening Post, 20,000 cricket fans will have to be as rowdy as possible for 20 minutes by screaming, grunting and chanting.

The noisy crowd could be led by Oscar-nominated Rings director Peter Jackson, who is rumoured to be turning up for the match.

But the real battle sounds are tipped to come from clashing rival supporter groups - England's 'Barmy Army', and New Zealand's 'Mad Caps'.

They'll be fighting it out to see who can whip up the loudest racket.
