Elijah Wood Speaks Even More About “The Hobbit”

January 12, 2011 at 11:06 am by Earl  - 

Here’s another neat interview with Elijah Wood (this time courtesy of Collider.com) concerning his return to Middle-earth as Frodo Baggins and having Peter Jackson return to the director’s chair after Guillermo del Toro’s departure.

From Collider.com:

COLLIDER: Was there a chance that you wouldn’t be able to do The Hobbit because of Wilfred?

WOOD: No. As it was always with The Hobbit, they wanted to do it very early in their schedule, so it just happened to work out very well.

COLLIDER: So, did you always know that you were going to be going back and doing it?

WOOD: I didn’t always know. I had an idea.

COLLIDER: What’s it like to be returning to Middle Earth again?

WOOD: It’s a gift. We’re now going on over a decade since I went out to New Zealand to start The Lord of the Rings, so it’s just going to be a beautiful reunion. I was actually out there in February and a lot of the same crew and designers, and so many of the family are a part of making The Hobbit as well. It’s just going to be a beautiful, very surreal reunion.

COLLIDER: Does it make it that much more special to have Peter Jackson back for it?

WOOD: Yes, absolutely. I was very excited at the prospect of Guillermo [Del Toro] doing it. I’m a huge fan of Guillermo’s work and he’s a wonderful man, but it obviously makes it that much more special that Peter is doing it. It’s going to be a true reunion, in that sense.

COLLIDER: Who else is coming back?

WOOD: Ian McKellan is back. Andy Serkis is reprising his role as Gollum. Cate Blanchett is coming back as Galadriel. There’s a few others from the original trilogy.

COLLIDER: When will you start filming?

WOOD: Sometime in February.

COLLIDER: That soon?

WOOD: Yeah.

COLLIDER: How long will the shoot be?

WOOD: They’re going for over a year. They’ve got two films to make.

    I can’t imagine how special it’s going to be for Wood and all the former LOTR cast members to have this chance to return to Middle Earth. The original trilogy was a life-changing experience for all of them, I’m sure. Oh, to work on that film set…

  4. Elijah Wood on returning to Middle Earth. He’s stoked! As I would be! And hopefully will be!
