Ian McKellan, Andy Serkis to Star in 'The Hobbit' Films
According to the film site Coming Soon, both Sir Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis will reprise their roles as Gandalf and Gollum respectively in a film version of "The Hobbit," now scheduled to begin shooting in New Zealand on Feb. 21, 2020.
In his blog, Sir Ian describes the twists and turns the pre-production phase of the two-part movie endured. He further describes his own dilemma about committing to 18 months of shooting.
"Could I let Gandalf go? Would anyone else care if I did? Elsewhere, does anyone care that Michael Gambon was not the first to play Dumbledore?"
Of course, Gambon was only obliged to set into the robes of Dumbledore when the original actor who played him, Richard Harris, died. McKellen, age 71, is yet alive.
"The Hobbit" will be actually two films, one of which will depict the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, who travels in the company of 12 dwarves and the wizard Gandalf across Middle Earth in search of a dragon's horde of treasure. The second half will be a "bridge film" depicting events taking place between "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings," using material suggested in the notes of "The Lord of the Rings" written by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Peter Jackson, the New Zealand-born director, will helm the two "Hobbit" films, just as he did "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
Apparently Elijah Wood will reprise his role as Frodo in an opening sequence to the movie. Also rumored to be appearing are Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, and Orlando Bloom as their long-lived elf characters.
"The Hobbit" has undergone more twists and turns than most films have in pre-production. There has been a change of directors (Guillermo del Toro was at one time slated to direct), a labor dispute, and a possible change of shooting location outside of New Zealand. But all of that has been settled, with shooting now to begin in about a month.
A little more than a year from now, film goers will delight in the adventures of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, as he ventures from his comfortable home in The Shire; visiting elves, crossing Mirkwood; encountering the poor, doomed and damned Gollum; acquiring the One Ring that will cause such a fuss later on; slipping into a dragon's cave under the nose of the great and terrible Smaug; and finally participating in the epic Battle of the Five Armies.
And a year from then, hitherto unknown adventures, depicting the rise of Sauron, setting up the epic events of "The Lord of the Rings." One can hardly wait.
