Elijah Wood Returns in ‘The Hobbit’

Filed under : Celebrity News

Pre-production on ‘The Hobbit’, the movie prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has been plagued with setbacks and delays, but finally, some good news has come its way. In a departure from the original book’s storyline, ‘The Hobbit’ will feature the popular Frodo Baggins, again played by Elijah Wood.

29 year old Wood will apparently feature in the opening sequences of both parts of the prequel, to be screened in two installments. Martin Freeman is set to take over the role of Bilbo Baggins but fans will hope to keep the continuity with stars such as Sir Ian McKellan, Cate Blanchett and Orlando Bloom reprising their roles, on the movie which is set to start filming in 2011.

Those details are yet to be confirmed but as the actors have not said they don’t want to be involved, as did the original Bilbo Baggins and the original director, so fans are hopeful for a familiar look to The Shire and its inhabitants. The filming will now take place in New Zealand, as it did for the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy. The problems related to labor laws there have now been resolved as have the financial woes of the MGM studio which also caused delays, so the production team are now spared the headache of trying to recreate the spectacular scenery that helped to make the first three movies so memorable.

If all goes well from now on, we should see ‘The Hobbit’ hitting cinema screens in 2012.

    Hi, as a big Hobbit fan, I can’t wait for the Hobbit films. Especially loved the Elves of the trilogy, and then found this on iTunes. The Hobbit – A Cinematic Journey. It’s very like the music from the films, even has a bit of ‘The Omen’ about it.
