It's reliably reported that the script for #1 is done (Ian McKellan says he's seen it), and #2 is in the works. Shooting is expected to begin in a few months. The report that mentioned 2012 does not appear to be very well-sourced (knowledgeable).

The casting process appears to be under way, and we're all hoping for announcements in the next weeks or months.

Two points [In reply to] Can't Post

How reliable is Ian McKellen? Didn't he say Bilbo was cast back in August? On the other hand, the script story was mentioned by others, iirc.

The latest 2012 article quoted a New Line official. However, I'm more inclined to believe PJ.

Sir Ian is as reliable [In reply to] Can't Post

as anyone at this stage - meaning, subject to change as things progress. If I'm remembering correctly, he hinted that they had someone in mind for Bilbo at that time, not that anyone was cast. The person he was thinking of may still be on a short list, or something may have come up to prevent it working out, who knows. No one is "cast" until they're signed, and we'll hear that news when it happens.


"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

It's difficult not to worry [In reply to] Can't Post

when there are so many unanswered questions. Try not to worry. It was only a short while ago that we were wondering if there ever would be a Hobbit film made... and now we have 2!!! :D

Peter Jackson has waited a long time and worked very hard to finish Tolkien's story, and I trust him to be as respectful and careful with these films. I hope they can get them done according to their original schedule, and I'll continue to hope for that... but time will tell. Just thank Goodness we have these films being done at all :D

Your English is VERY VERY good! I took nearly 6 years of French in school (thousands of years ago now ;), and I'd be totally lost if I tried to use it now. Tres bien, Rogash! :D

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

I can't find anywhere he says that [In reply to] Can't Post

Looking through my collection of links to news articles and googling repeatedly shows a November 2009 interview where PJ said the first script was done and the second half-completed, but he didn't say when the second one would be finished.

The piece I did find is here: http://www.theonering.net/...script-is-completed/.
