I heard about this cash wrangle and it sounded like those in the know were pretty much resigned to moving to the UK to film it would be good for the UK film industry if it came here and England and Scotland certainly has the scenery as well as the facilities but a blow for new zealand who never really took advantage of the Lord of the rings I remember after these films were done how Hollywood producers were meant to be falling over themselves to film there.

There were a few movies filmed in New Zealand after LOTR, they also capitalised on the tourism aspect of it, tours of the Hobbiton area and stuff like that.

I like the casting of Bilbo.

I don't think it REALLY matters who's directing. This will make a killing regardless, the only point where it might make a difference is in the splitting it into two movies, if they do that, and the first one sucks, then the second part could bomb. Well, not "bomb", but it won't do as well as the first one, if the first one was bad. As long as the new Director keeps it all within a similar feel as the LOTR trilogy, it should be fine, you don't want them to be glaringly different, like if they got Tarantino to do the Hobbit movies, Which could actually be kind of awesome in some way....

I love the book, but I'm not sure I want the movie. LOTR was so awesome and perfect, but The Hobbit now has to live up to those movies but using different actors.

And WTF about it being in two movies?

Well, I think Sir Ian McKellan is still going to be Gandalf and Hugo Weaving will probably still be Elrond so it wont be a completely different cast, but I dont know if Christopher Lee will return as Saruman or Cate Blanchett will return as Galadriel or Marton Csokas as Celeborn.

The thing about two movies is that one will probably end with the Desolation of Smaug and the other will probably feature the Battle of Five Armies and the driving of the Necromancer from Dul Guldur - not necessarilly in that order. If you add in whatever Gandalf was doing before meeting Bilbo and after ditching him, Thorin and Company after crossing the Misty Mountain then you can add a bit more to the story.

I would imagine that Peter Jackson will start it off with backstory - like the start of the Fellowship of the Ring - about the coming of Smaug and the sacking of Dale and Erebor and will, at the very least, show Gandalf penetraiting Dul Guldur and finding Thrain and getting the map in that backstory if he doesn't start the film properly with that. And then he could add the meetings of the White Councils where in the first one Gandalf fails to convince them to unit their strength against the Necromancer and the second one, after he had crossed the Misty Mountain with Thorin and Company, where he succeeds. Then there is of course the action part in the driving of the Necromancer from Dul Guldur.

So there's whole second story to be told alongside Bilbo part and in tandemn with the Hobbit.

More Viggo? Don't tease me. I would love it if he would do this. He did say a while back that he was going to take a break from acting because he hates promoting films.

It's just internet rumours that Mortensen will be in the film at the moment and it might be complete rubbish.

Aragorn was of a race of man, Numenorean, who had a lifespan that was something like 3 times the regular guy. He was around 70 something during the War of the Ring, so he should have been around during Bilbo's tales.

Officially Aragorn born 2931 and in 2941 Biblo begins his adventure. So Aragorn would be just a child during this movie-damn it! 2956 Aragorn meets Gandalf.

Aragorn was 10 during the time period of the Hobbit, so perhaps I got it a bit wrong but, as I said, I was going on internet rumours and they can be extremely unreliable.

They could still shove him in it I guess. Movies don't have to mesh with the books.

Then again, Peter Jackson is directing and he would have taken it all into account.

They could cast Viggo as Arathorn in the movie. He could play his dad and that would give us ladies something to enjoy. What a Face

Arathorn was dead. He died about eight years before the Quest for Erebor.

Well, Viggo is old now, so I suppose I will have to just let it all go. Sad

Sir Ian McKellan has confirmed that he will reprise the role of Gandalf and Andy Serkis has comfirmed he will return to play Gollum. Elijah Wood is rumoured to possibly be reprising his role as Frodo Baggins (though most likely just a cameo appearance), Christopher Lee is still considering whether to reprise his role as Saruman and Ian Holm is similarly considering whether to join the cast as well (though I dont know if its a cameo as an older Bilbo Baggins or some other role). Saoirse Ronan has also agreed to join the cast though her role is not currently known, however it is rumoured that she will play a Silvan Elf called Itaril who guards Thranduil's halls in Mirkwood (likely a character made for the film) or Primula Brandybuck (Frodo's mother). Hugo Weaving and Orlando Bloom are still in contract negotiations. Also rumour has it that Brian Blessed has been cast but there is no word as to what role. Leonard Nimoy has been rumoured to be up for the vice of Smaug and David Tennant is rumoured to be up for the role as Thranduil but this is internet rumours and probably had no truth in them. Dominc Keating has also confirmed he's auditioned but that's all the info we have on that and Shane Briant has been rumoured to have been cast as the master of laketown.

I just found out that the character Dain Ironfoot will be played by Billy Connolly. Bet its going to be quite a laugh on set, what with Barry Humphreys, Stephen Fry and Billy Connolly.

I am really looking forward to these movies. I am a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings stories and the movies, but The Hobbit is the only one of the books that I could read repeatedly. I'm not too pleased with the trailer coming out a year before the movie releases, though. What a long time to wait Sad

I wonder if Del Torro will join in for the creation of Smaug? From what I've read his plans for the dragon were aaaawesome.

I think Del Torro's off the project altogether. I've not heard anything of his involvement, not have I found anything on it on his Hobbit blogs.

Yeah, I think he's out all together. I have confidence in Peter Jackson though since he did the best anybody could have done with Lord of the Rings - Hobbit should be exciting.

I know that the advanced screening of the Hobbit wasn't well recieved but that seems to have been about some technicality over the type of camera or film used rather than the story itself. The pictures of the actors in costume look impressive though and I did enjoy the trailer:

Yeah, it's going to be presented at double the normal frame rate. I'm hoping they have the technology out here so I can see it at 48 frames a second, because that just sounds interesting. Now that I know it'll be a little disorientating, I can expect it. But that definitely won't deter me from seeing it. It's actually got me intrigued.

I've heard they'll present it at the normal frame rate too.

There've been a lot of video blogs (as Peter Jackson does). I haven't seen many of them, but what I've seen is really interesting.
