Interesting re: Iceland. It says they filmed "recently", which means it's going to definitely be ice & snow stuff, rather than green-but-rugged stuff.

That does lend some credence to a possible Icewind Dale movie. Honestly it wouldn't be a bad idea. Though given they were doing little enough that they didn't even need to send the actual actors, just stand-ins, one suspects it might merely be part of the movie rather than a focus.

One line in the Iceland article stands out to me:
None of the actors traveled to Iceland for the scenes, since Icelandic stand-ins were used in their place.

So a question for those familiar with film production:

What might this mean? What parts of a movie would be filmed with stand-ins rather than the actors themselves?

Wide aerial shots showing off the landscape. So your 4-5 main characters (the adventuring party) trudging through a vast snowy plain, or entering an enormous icy cavern, or approaching a ruined castle. It doesn't matter who the actors are at 500 feet.

Apparently parts of the movie have already been filmed!

That could be good or bad news.

When they were filming "The Hobbit", they did reshoots like 2 or 3 years later for scenes with Báin, and as he was at that just right age, he looks wildly different from scene to scene across The Battle of the Five Armies as a result (since he got his growth spurt in-between shoots).

Delays can be really useful, even after shooting has begun, though. More time to breathe and develop the story and get it just right is not a bad thing.

These days? Practically any of them. Digitally compositing an actor's face over a stand-in or stunt double was pioneered as far back as Jurassic Park, and these days it can be done essentially seamlessly.

Iceland also has ash plains. Maybe we are going to Hell?

It could be used as multiple locations. One of the reasons it's popular as a filming location.

After "cheap" and "has good tax breaks".

I guess my question re: the ash plains is, do they look like that in Jan/Feb/Mar? Because I've seen photos of them with a lot of snow, and given that news shows Iceland was pretty snowy in Jan/Feb/Mar (albeit by my low UK standards) I'd guess they'd be snowy still. That said maybe not, I dunno if they're really warm and melt it or something.

Dunno. There are certainly thermal pools and the like where any snow would melt.

They might just want a bunch of extras who can bring their own horned helmets. :)
