If they don't figure all of their shiz out, this movie is going to implode in on itself!
Production of The Hobbit, the prequel to The Lord of the Rings films, has pretty much been troubled since day one, but now we're hearing news that Sir Ian McKellen may put the final nail in the coffin - by dropping out as Gandalf!
"Well I'm not under contract and my time is running out and I'm enjoying working in the theatre and frankly, I would like to race after doing 'Waiting For Godot,' get on with doing another play but we'll have to see. I don't give the producers the impression that I'm sitting waiting. What it will be I genuinely don't know. It'll either be, we're going ahead or we're not."
Sounds like he's just as fed up as everyone else with this mess of a movie!
Understandably so! We'd be over it, too!
