Viggo Mortensen then contacted Peter Jackson to obtain the right to show the sword in his film, and the latter accepted on the condition that he notify the production company that holds the rights to J. R. R. Tolkien's trilogy:

I contacted them and they agreed. They understood that the sword was not essential and that it was not going to attract much attention […] It was a kind of last minute change.

An anecdote that should delight fans of The Lord of the Rings, already in the Seventh Heaven that Aragorn has a chance to return in The Hunt of Gollum!
