‘Hobbit’ Film Details Emerge During Jackson/Del Toro Q&A
The Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson Q&A I told you about last week seems to have been fairly interesting and full of information for eager Hobbit fans.
Over at The Frodo Franchise, Kristin Thompson has a nice roundup of some of the highlights, including this bit:
Peter hints that Gandalf the Grey will be important in both The Hobbit and what’s currently just called Film 2. That seems to hint that Ian McKellen is willing to act in both, since later on Peter says that only characters whose actors will return for the second film will be written into its script.
There’s also a transcript of the full Q&A available at the Weta website.
