Blanchett Game For ‘Hobbit,’ But Only With Jackson

September 19, 2007 at 5:41 pm by Celeborn  - 

MTV Movie Blog continues to snag some great ‘Hobbit’ film tidbits! This time around, they’ve caught up with Cate Blanchett and asked her if she’d be up for an appearance in a film version of ‘The Hobbit’:

Cate Blanchett talk Hobbit“”I haven’t heard a thing [about a potential ‘Hobbit’ film],” she declared. “But, oh God, I would love to work with Hugo [Weaving] and Peter [Jackson] again.”

Blanchett is the latest “Lord of the Rings” actor to tell MTV that she’d consider playing her character again for a prequel series. Like Viggo Mortensen or Orlando Bloom, Blanchett’s character doesn’t exactly appear in “The Hobbit,” although thanks to J.R.R. Tolkien’s extensive later backstories, her insertion would be completely unproblematic. In fact, it’s hard to envision a “Hobbit” film WITHOUT Galadriel, particularly if the film covers any of the period between the defeat of Smaug and the War of the Ring.”
