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!

We want to believe you, Ian McKellan! But with all of the pre-production dramz, we just don't know!
Despite all this shiz that has stopped the production of The Hobbit from moving forward, Gandalf the Grey himself took to Twitter to assure fans that The Hobbit is still happening, despite losing its director, Guillermo del Toro!
"Hobbit" sets are ready, script ready and movie is casting this month. Fans are not to worry. The films will get made. I suspect we'll start shooting at end of this year.
Yeah. We suspect about 18 more snags in the plan!
What do U think?? Will The Hobbit ever see the light of day??
