New Zealand casting for “The Hobbit” to begin on Monday

December 12, 2009 at 1:05 pm by Altaira  - 

The Hobbit Movie LogoIn the last few weeks, we’ve heard from reliable sources that casting directors for “The Hobbit” have been assigned in Great Britain, but the ball is now rolling ‘for real’ in New Zealand! The site just posted an announcement that MGM Studios New Zealand casting for ‘The Hobbit” Part 1 will begin this coming Monday, December 14. Per their site:

“Casting is scheduled to begin next week, December 14, 2009, on the upcoming MGM Studios feature film “The Hobbit” Part 1. The project is now being developed as two films, and principal photography is tentatively scheduled to begin in New Zealand around May or June 2011. Please submit photos and resume by mail only. No phone calls or personal drop-offs.

Hobbit Extras Application
Address TBD

The entry also lists associated productions companies, but emphasizes NOT to send resumes and pictures to them or they will likely end up in the trash. If you’re lucky enough to live in New Zealand, best of luck to you! If not, remember that there are requirements you must meet to be eligible to work in New Zealand. You can read more about it in our Hobbit Movie FAQ here.

Do you intend to submit a resume? Discuss it on our chatroom and/or message boards and keep us posted on your progress! Thanks to message board member shadowdog for alerting us to this great news!
