Viggo talks Hobbit at the Toronto Film Festival 08 ...

A small interview with Viggo Mortensen at the Toronto Film Festival - and a snippet from the interview ...
No doubt there will be more (interviews on the Hobbit) since he is doing the rounds promoting his two films -
but here he talks about speaking with someone from the project - and that he'll be in NZ in January Cool

NZ TV3 Viggo Mortensen Interview at the Toronto Film Festival sept 08 - watch the interview here Smile

Quote

Interviewer: [snip]... but then we had a talk about the Hobbit he hasnt committed to film, obviously the book purists are a little bit worried because the character of Aragorn doesnt appear in the Hobbit, but he might appear in the film this is what Aragorn had to say ...

Interviewer: Are we going to see a bit of Aragorn in the Hobbit, what do you think?

Viggo: I dont know, Ive heard that the bridge movie (err) - I havent been approached by the Director or anything but I saw someone who was involved in the project and they asked if that would be something Id be interested in doing and I said well Id love to see what you guys write its going to have to be an invention using the appendices from the book or something, yeah ... (pause) ... I mean Yeah, obviously if youve established a character yourself, youd rather do it yourself than see another actor do it.

Interviewer: Absolutely so youll be down in NZ soon I hope?

Viggo: Well, I hope so. Im going to go there anyway regardless ..

Interviewer: Are you?

Viggo: Yeah I should be there in January or so ... [snip]



Smile The someone sounds like one of the writers ...
and Im curious to know what is happening in NZ to do with the films in January ...

Keeping fingers crossed.
Cheers

My impression is

that they're all tiptoeing the line a bit - wanting to say something but aren't allowed to.

Hm, so someone to do with the production has talked with him? Good. That could only be the four scriptwriters. Of course not the director, GDT is still only one of the scriptwriters Wink


Well, Viggo doesn't belong into the Hobbit, but I'd love to see him back in F2 if they find a good way to do it!

Thanks, Elven!

Interesting... I hope he'll be back, obviously, but...

... only for the bridge-film-or-did-we-settle-on-calling-it-film-2-man-I-wish-they-would-give-it-a-name-already.

His argument about rather doing it himself then seeing anyone else do it is a very, very valid one I believe...

For the reunion

as the King, he would likely hang out and help with the films even if he wasn't in them. No way could he bare being away from all his friends while they delved back into middle earth.

tangential to F2

People keep calling it "F2", which I automatically associate with the function keys on a standard keyboard. F2, under Windows, is usually used for renaming things. Which is why I find it funny, since no one knows what the name of film 2 will be. Laugh

(Just how my brain works. Carry on.)

Ironic, yes. And on my Mac laptop, F2 is used to brighten the screen Smile

I always liked Compa's 'sprequel' better than F2 - but who am I to argue with PJ and GDT? Wink

Shouldn't it be Breequel?

Perhaps...

This is nice to hear anyway... but hadn't Guillermo said he had already approached McKellen, Serkis and Viggo?

Maybe I'll start frequenting the Green Parrot in January, and other of his former Wellington hangouts ...

I still like sprequel as well... it's just that since the chat I've been using their terminology.

Perhaps I should get back to using sprequel....Wink

January!! OR SO!?

Oh yeah... I'm sure it's for other purposes *kaff* Not like he'd be there to give input about a character or anything. Sure. I stop by NZ all the time. Just in the neighbourhood, no problem. *twitch* omg...





sample

"Barney Snow was here." ~Hug like a hobbit!~ "In my heaven..."

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Do it!

You might even convince GDT that sprequel sounds much nicer Smile
And the word still fits perfectly for something that is story-chronologically a prequel and film-chronologically a sequel!

Its F2

 ... and no, I wasn't swearing at anyone Laugh

Comes from the WETA chat - an unexpected party...

Guillermo:

Quote

Hi Shane - Yes the movies will be shot back to back and the shooting of the movie will be driven by which actors are working with us at a given time and what locations we are in. For instance, if we are shooting hObbiton scenes for Hobbit movies we would also shoot Hobbiton scenes for F2. So during our year of filming we will be shooting both movies at the same time out of sequence.


and Peter repied a little furter down the discussion ..

Quote

Hi Greg - F2 is referring to Film 2



and then further along in the discussion:


Trotter_the_Ranger:
What will be the title for the second movie?
Guillermo del Toro
Too early- but not "H2 Electric Boogaloo" that has been discarded.
Peter Jackson
Hi Trots - the second movie doesn't have a title yet and probably won't until we write the script. As you will see we have the incredibly boring name Film Two which I assure you will not last for very long. Just bear with us.


So the name of the second Movie is F2 or Film 2 - and Im happy with that. Wink

Sorry for being a bit catty

That`s the same answer he gave long time before when asked about involvement in The Hobbit or bridge movie.Absolutely the same thing...that he hasn`t been approached yet, would rather play the character he established than see someone else in the role, that he would be interested to read the script. Obviously,the answer is scripted and thus meant to be repeated until he`s allowed to say either yes or no. So,for now, everyone (except for confirmed ones) are likely to give similar vague answers, neither yes or not, but definitely that they would be interested (or fanbase would be pissed). depedning on what list they are on (A list down to F), they are going to mention busy schedule/that they would like to read the script first(A list) or just that they would love to to do it(anyone else - the lower list the more eager to come back and have another shot at fame that didn`t work out first time around).
