MORE Amazing Cast Additions To The Hobbit!

Filed under: Film FlickersOrlando Bloom

Wow! We guess it was worth waiting through the production delays!

David Tennant, who is the former Doctor on the UK series Doctor Who, has reportedly joined the cast of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit as Sindarin Elf King Thranduil!

Inneresting! Especially because that character in the series is the father of Legolas, which MAY explain why our beloved Orly is making a return appearance in the prequel!

Meanwhile, we've gotten word that Sir Christopher Lee, who portrayed the evil wizard Saruman in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, is in talks to reprise his role for the new film, as well, so long as he is in good enough health to travel!

Honestly, we don't think we could be anymore excited for this movie!

If all the pieces fall into place, this could not only match the level of awesomeness put into precedence with the original trilogy - but dare we say SURPASS it!

Thoughts??

Elijah Wood Talks The Hobbit!

Filed under: Film FlickersElijah Wood

It's official then! This is so exciting!

Elijah Wood has already spoken out about the just-announced speculation that he will making an appearance in the upcoming, Peter Jackson-directed adaptation of The Hobbit, and confirmed that he's officially signed on to reprise his role as Frodo Baggins!

He explains:

"We thought we were finished and the character doesn't even exist in [the book of] The Hobbit, so it was not even a pipe dream to imagine the possibility would be there for me to reprise the role of Frodo. But they've come up with something that I think is kind of interesting and I think very fitting that doesn't necessarily infringe upon the integrity of the original novel. It's great. I'm really excited. Those films marked a huge, massive experience in my life. It's been 11 years, basically, since I went to New Zealand, so it'll be a beautiful reunion and I'm just excited to go back and see everybody again. I think it'll [screen time] be relatively minimal. That's my impression. I actually haven't read anything yet. I haven't read a script. I have almost as much information as you guys have!"

Amazing!

We think that his appearance should be kept brief, but we think that it will be a lovely way to link this to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and we also agree that if done right, it definitely won't take away from the integrity of the book!

Yay!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Frodo's return??

Is Elijah Wood Heading Back To The Shire?!

We like this idea! What a great way to link the films together!

Now that production is FINALLY underway on Peter Jackson's prequel to his Lord of the Rings series, The Hobbit, it sounds like yet another cast member from the original trilogy will be reprising his role!

Elijah Wood is reported to be portraying his role as Frodo Baggins in the opening sequence of the new film, reading a book that would re-introduce viewers to the story and the world all over again!

Lovely! Between he, Orlando Bloom and Cate Blanchett returning, we think that the The Hobbit will fit nicely as a companion to the other films!

What do U think?? Are U happy to see the return of Frodo??

Ian McKellan Dropping Out Of The Hobbit?

Filed under: Film Flickers

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!

He reveals:

"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!

Thoughts??

The Hobbit Officially Greenlit! To Shoot In November!

hobbit-book-cover1jb.jpg

Well it's about effing time!

After more behind-the-scenes drama than a night out with Lindsanity LOLhan, the long-awaited prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit, has been greenlit and pre-production is underway!

The tentative plan is to start filming in November, and sources close to the production are claiming:

"The usual 3D technical suspects have been rounded up…so I would bank on it."

Excellent!

We just hope that the snags and complications don't follow the filmmakers into production!

This one has the potential to be truly great!!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a potentially 3D version of The Hobbit??
