The Hobbit cast gather together for a group shot
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
When I first found this story I was so excited to see a group shot of the cast for the upcoming Peter Jackson epic THE HOBBIT. Then I realized that it’s just Martin Freeman (who plays Bilbo Baggins) and a bunch of people I’m not familiar with who are going to play dwarves. Not gonna lie, I wanted to see Ian McKellan and Elijah Wood. So here we are, about a month away from when shooting will start (remember Peter Jackson has been laid up with tummy troubles) and everyone is gathering together in New Zealand to begin production for THE HOBBIT: PART 1 & 2 which will be shot back to back and in 3D. There are no set release dates but look for the first part to come out late next year.
I wish I could get excited by THE HOBBIT, but I just can’t. Maybe after I see a trailer or two I’ll change my mind, but right now I’m bored with it.
