Ian McKellen Says "The Hobbit" Will Begin Filming in January

Posted: September 14th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ian McKellen Says "The Hobbit" Will Begin Filming in JanuarySubmit Comment
Ian McKellen has just revealed to The Bolton News that production on the long-awaited "The Lord of the Rings" prequels, called "The Hobbit," will begin in January. He once again mentioned that he will sign on for other projects if shooting doesn't begin by then.

At this point, MGM has yet to resolve their financial problems and "The Hobbit" films are still without a director, even though Peter Jackson has been hinting that he will helm.

The good news is that it seems that everyone is working on making the January start date. The scripts are finished and EW recently confirmed that Martin Freeman (UK' "The Office," Hot Fuzz) is in negotiations to star as Bilbo Baggins.

They better do it on the date that they put for the goal. Not a day after. As said by mckellens character," you shall not pass!"
