No One Told Ian McKellan About The Hobbit Production Delays! Arrives In New Zealand Five Weeks Early!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm Flickers



It's pretty safe to assume at this point that Peter Jackson's production of The Hobbit is bordering on 'cursed' territory, as the shooting date was once again pushed back due to the director's recent perforated stomach ulcer requires that he take five weeks to recuperate - but it seems that no one informed the flick's star, Ian McKellan, who arrived in New Zealand only to be informed of the delay!

The actor wrote on his blog:

“A wizard is never late: but I hadn't intended last Thursday to arrive in Wellington for The Hobbit filming, five weeks early. Filming was to start at the end of February 2011. I curtailed a holiday in India to make sure I would be on time. Then, while I was away, Peter Jackson had his stomach operation. The insurance company has insisted on five weeks recuperation. Which is why, yet again, I’m here early.”

Good lord! Nobody can catch a break, can they?

We truly, truly hope that this is the last production snag, guys!

Our fingers our crossed for you! We KNOW that the end result is going to be well worth all of the headaches!

    Just grab some midgets and a Flip camera and go out to Malibu Creek State Park. Give them 15 cases of Bud and a big bag of weed and shoot for the entire weekend. There's your entire Hobbit movie. Done.

    I can just picture senile old Ian McKellen wandering around New Zealand looking for hobbits!! Google Search keywords "The Media Jerk" to read Heartless criticism of the day's biggest celebrity news stories!!
