And Gollum and Elrond, fron the looks of it. Sweet. That's what I was looking for as a sign that these movies can be as good as the LOTR trilogy. Now I'm eager to see them.

It's about freakin time. Though I do wonder how well the film will do since Lord of the Rings has already passed. I do think he should have done The Hobbit first but that's just my personal opinion.

Actor Ian McKellen, one of the LOTR's actors (he played Gandolf), has posted on his site that he will begin filming in July on "The Hobbit":

Is anyone else looking forward to the filming of this movie?

I'm a HUGE fan of Tolkien, so I've been eager about this film since it was announced it was going to be made. :happy_marle:

I recently posted a little piece on my site that is a scene from The Hobbit.
The director chosen for The Hobbit is Guillermo del Toro, who directed Pan's Labyrinth. Trust me, this is a very, very good thing. The man has an incredible talent constructing eccentric creatures, to say the least. I'm looking forward to seeing him work his magic.

The actors we'll see once again include Andy Serkis (Gollum), Hugo Weaving (Elrond), and as officially announced, Ian McKellen (Gandalf).

It's rumored that James McAvoy is cast as Bilbo Baggins, but that is, of course, just a rumor.

LOTR's director Peter Jackson has recently been Knighted!

At first I thought that was kind of odd. Usually I hear about people being knighted only if they're older. But then I read that this was in New Zealand instead of Britain. I suppose there are different practices for it. I'm sure Sir Jackson is happy to have his successes recognized in this way.

Well, I'm sure this is going to be disappointing news to many LOTR's and Hobbit fans, but Guillermo del Toro will no longer be director of "The Hobbit". A search is under way for a new director:

That's a shame, but understandable. It sounds like there have been some delays that are going to make the project take much longer. Unfortunately, we probably won't see the films during this decade if this pattern continues.

While I'm interested in seeing The Hobbit, I'm more concerned about how this will impact the release of the Extended Edition Blu-rays for the Lord of the Rings films. :(
