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

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm Flickers

SERIOUSLY?!

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!

Thoughts??

Orlando Bloom Getting $1 Million To Appear In The Hobbit For 2 Minutes????!!!

orlando-bloom-making-millio.jpg

Orlando Bloom will earn $1 million dollars to appear as Legolas in The Hobbit - for less than two minutes!

He is not confirmed, but it is expected any day now. Sir Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett and Elijah Wood will all appear in The Hobbit, but Orlando is making more money on a per minute average than all of them.

Wowsa! Good for him.

Ian McKellen Still Not Set For Hobbit Film

Filed under: Film Flickers

we want ian mckellan to play gandalf in the hobbit

We've been very happy with Hobbit casting announcements so far…especially Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins.

The one announcement that we haven't heard, though, is who will play Gandalf, and we REALLY hope that person is Ian McKellen!

For a long time, it seemed like McKellen as Gandalf would be a sure thing, but he recently said to Broadway World that he wasn't under contract for the film yet. He didn't comment further because he was worried that it "might complicate things."

How is he not under contract? Ian McKellen should have been the FIRST actor to be placed under contract for this movie!

Spread the word - WE WANT IAN!!!!

First Hobbit Casting Announcements!!!

Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm Flickers

first hobbit casting announcements released

Now that the film has gotten the greenlight and Hobbit drama has calmed down, the fun Hobbit updates can begin!

The lead character, Bilbo Baggins, will be played by Martin Freeman! You probably remember him as the endearing adult film actor from Love Actually. He's also appeared as Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. We think he's great for this role.

Here are some other major casting announcements:

-Richard Armitage (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Thorin Oakenshield, leader of the Company of Dwarves

-Aidan Turner (Being Human) and Rob Kazinsky (EastEnders) as Dwarves Kili and Fili

-Graham McTavish (Secretariat) as Dwalin

-John Callen (Power Rangers Jungle Fury) as Oin

-Stephen Hunter (All Saints) as Bombur

-Mark Hadlow (King Kong) as Dori

-Peter Hambleton (The Strip) as Gloin

Rumored cast members include Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Andy Serkis as Gollum.

Stephen Fry, Saoirse Ronan, and Bill Nighy are also on Peter Jackson's radar.

What do U think of these casting choices? Do U think they made the right choice for Bilbo Baggins?
