Tag: the hobbit movie news
With The Hobbit films set to begin filming in a matter of months, there have been plenty of casting news coming from the production...and a few rumors to go along with it. The lastest bit of news, I'm going to treat as a rumor, since nothing official has come down the pipeline for it. However, Deadline is reporting that a source of theirs is saying Orlando Bloom will be returning to the elf role of Legolas in the upcoming movies.
By now most of you are aware of the many problems the Hobbit films have had getting off the ground. First MGM's financial disaster, then Guillermo del Toro leaving the director's chair, and the dispute Jackson and co. have been having with NZ Actor's Equity (an Actor's Union) is the latest in the line of issues. Of course with the film finally getting it's official greenlight many thought things would be going smoothly and that the issue would be handled in time for the February start date. Unfortunately this isn't the case and it may mean that the land of Middle-Earth will be leaving New Zealand.
