Deadline is told that Andy Serkis has closed his deal to bring back Gollum in The Hobbit, the two films that Peter Jackson will direct in New Zealand starting in February. Serkis will join returning cast members Cate Blanchett and Elijah Wood.
I'm pretty sure this has been confirmed now, and I'm so excited about it. I'm glad they're going to be able to keep such continuity.
Color me indifferent. I don't deny the technological achievements in LotR but I really didn't enjoy it that much and have since tried watching it multiple times falling asleep each and every time. I still haven't made it through one movie completely
Oh my gosh, I think you just broke my heart! I can't believe anyone can fall asleep during Lord of the Rings. Wow, I guess it really isn't for everyone, but this is the first time I've heard someone say that.
Kevin Smith says it best - "Its a movie about people walking" He's not wrong
Ha! That's true, but I guess it still shocking.
I don't fall asleep and personally enjoy the movies, but you can only get so much. I mean you watch each one once and can't honestly go back to it again for at least a few months, if not more. Thats me though. I really enjoyed them a ton the very first time I watched them, but its no star Wars.
Andy Serkis did a amazing job in the LOTR films. The CG was equally as good. Golum felt like a real person rather than a CG effect. Glad to see him back. The Hobbit is a bit different than LOTR but great as well.
You're right he did do a good job. I can't imagine what it's like having to do what he did for so many hours for this role. I just didn't like the movies all that much. I remember really liking the Hobbit book so hopefully I'll enjoy the movie.
I know LOTR was done as CGI and other tech specs were being developed, but in todays age do you think he will have the same effect? I mean they probably don't even need an actual person acting anything now, and the voice could easily be manipulated if he decided to not return.
