"The Hobbit" Not Yet Greenlit

Posted: July 29th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Hobbit" Not Yet GreenlitSubmit Comment
It seems like Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro have been working on "The Hobbit" prequels for a while now, but according to Jackson, they have yet to complete the script, begin casting or try to get the project greenlit.

"You never go offering a role to an actor until you have a script that they can read, and you also need a schedule so you can tell what dates you need them to work," he said.

Jackson added that the script is about three weeks away from being complete. "We have to deliver that to the studio," he said. "They have to read it. They have to like it. They have to agree to a budget. They have to green-light the movie, because we haven't really got a green-light. Everybody assumes that 'The Hobbit' is being made, but the reality is, unless we can write a script that the studio likes and present a budget that they like, there won't be any 'Hobbit' film being made."

I've been hearing that Elrond, Saruman, and Gandalf will have the same people portraying them. Then again, it is only rumors. As for a source, I cannot recall, was awhile ago that I heard this.

I tell you guys the only person who can play this role is James McAvoy, if they get him and the people dhkenobi is talking about then this will be great.

Rich k, you are right on the money. McAvoy was aces in State of Play (the BBC miniseries) as well as Atonement. He gets too much flak for starring in Wanted (where he wasn't even bad).

James McAvoy?

Thats a good casting choice. What about Michael Sheen?

James mcavoy is a crap choice to play Bilbo,looks nothing like a Hobbit,too young, Scottish so the accent will be waaaayyy off ..also where is his pot belly?all Hobbits have one?Jackson needs to READ the f*ckin books instead of rewriting huge sections like he did with LOTR.

But..... weren't they already building hobbiton???? So that photo we saw here was from LordoftheRings, wasn't it?
I think McAvoy is a very good choice, not because of Wanted but for Atonment. And I dont think the accent would be a problem, Billy Boyd was scottish as well and did it so well

f*ck the hobbits, are they just going to do alot of walking in this movie too? I hope it doesnt get greenlit, Jackson should focus his attention to the remake of Goonies.

What the?! Man this is getting more and more suspect. With the estate suing this looks like a no go.
