The Hobbit – Films begin shooting in June
Posted by LiveFor on March 17, 2010
Over on his website McKellen had some interesting news:
THE HOBBIT’s, two films, start shooting in New Zealand in June. Filming will take over a year. Casting in Los Angeles, New York City and London has started. The script too proceeds. The first draft is crammed with old and new friends, again on a quest in Middle Earth.
The director Guillermo del Toro is now living in Wellington, close to the Jacksons’ and the studio in Miramar.
Still no word on who will be playing Bilbo.
