Ian McKellen Says "The Hobbit" is Moving Forward

Posted: June 12th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ian McKellen Says "The Hobbit" is Moving ForwardSubmit Comment
Even though director Guillermo del Toro has dropped out from helming "The Hobbit" prequels, actor Ian McKellen has revealed via his Twitter account that things are still moving forward.

He said: "'Hobbit' sets are ready, script ready and movie is casting this month. Fans are not to worry. The films will get made. I suspect we'll start shooting at end of this year."

Peter Jackson was supposed to produce the films, but now he says that he might have to step in to direct as well. At this point, he is still hopeful to find del Toro's replacement and has also confirmed that filming should begin later this year.

Please Mr. Jackson, the only man who can direct a great Hobbit film is the one who brought the legacy to the big screen.

Another update about when we start shooting. I don't even give a sh*t about LOTR or The Hobbit but when shooting starts is not news. Tell when there's a trailer, *ssholes!
