IGN: "It's on! Peter Jackson's two-film The Hobbit, just recently greenlit after a long stretch in development hell, suddenly has a cast. Specifically, it now has eight dwarves and a Bilbo Baggins."
I think its a pretty solid cast if i dont say so myself. I was interested as is, but this made it even more interesting. No super star names on the ballet, which is always an approval from me on anything.
Wow, that's pretty awesome. For a production that's had so much trouble and one we've been waiting on for so long, it's cool to see things moving so quickly now. The fact that they only got the greenlight a week ago and are already announcing cast members means he must have been doing casting well before (which he denied doing when those rumors came out). Can't wait for this to get going, and Martin Freeman definitely seems to look the part.
Well he wasn't allowed to talk about doing things behind the scenes, as it would of caused business issues. However you cant really expect the man to sit at home watching TV the whole time when his pride and joy is fighting to get made still lol.
Oh no, we all knew he was doing something. Otherwise he would have been totally wasting his time. I wouldn't be surprised to find out a lot of the VFX work is done and waiting for the real footage to come in.
has ian mckellen been casted?
