Here is the latest news on the upcoming Hobbit movies:

  • Director Guillermo del Toro has confirmed that actors Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, and Hugo Weaving will be returning in their roles as Gandalf, Gollum, and Elrond (respectively).
  • Del Toro has narrowed down the choice of actor for young Bilbo Baggins and is “very close” to making an announcement.
  • Del Toro also confirmed once again that the two films would focus on the contents of the Hobbit book only and would not be split between the Hobbit and a second film bridging the gap to the Lord of the Rings books.

    Can’t wait for this movie, but if they’re only at the beginning of casting it sounds like it will be a LONG time before opening in the theaters.Sigh.

    Yes, right now we are looking at 2012 — which seems a very long time away.
