Elijah Wood Speaks About “The Hobbit”
The guys over at IGN managed to catch up with Elijah Wood and ask him a few questions about his recent casting announcement as Frodo Baggins in the upcoming Hobbit films. Here’s what he had to say:
We thought we were finished and the character doesn’t even exist in The Hobbit, so it was not even a pipe dream to imagine the possibility would be there for me to reprise the role of Frodo. But they’ve come up with something that I think is kind of interesting and I think very fitting that doesn’t necessarily infringe upon the integrity of the original novel. It’s great. I’m really excited.
Those [the Lord of the Rings] films marked a huge, massive experience in my life. It’s been 11 years, basically, since I went to New Zealand, so it’ll be a beautiful reunion and I’m just excited to go back and see everybody again.
Concerning the details of the role he’s signed up to play, Elijah says:
I think it’ll be relatively minimal. That’s my impression. I actually haven’t read anything yet. I haven’t read a script. I have almost as much information as you guys have!
If Elijah would like to drop by and read up on the inside information concerning his role that was posted here on TORn late last week, I’m sure we’ll all be up for an unexpected party 🙂Posted in Elijah Wood, Hobbit Cast News, Hobbit Movie, LotR Cast News, The Hobbit on January 12, 2011 by Earl Source: IGN Elijah Wood Speaks About “The Hobbit” | Discuss
