$400 million to be spent on the two-part LotR prequel.

VERY YES. So glad this got sorted out.

Then there's also Gandalf the White (Phosphorous). And his US army sanctioned splosions. you can almost smell the victory.

In The Hobbit he's still Gandalf the Grey.

Finally, someone has gotten their head outta their ass and realised that the actors aren't getting any younger and this movie is a guaranteed gazillion dollar blockbuster so all the suits can start acting like adults.

Who's confirmed to play Bilbo Baggins? It's only Martin 'Awesome' Freeman.

Good choice, especially since he does look like he could pass as a younger Ian Holm (Bilbo in the LotR films).

...and he was Frodo in the 80's BBC radio LotR, which is a pretty good adaptation actually, it's how I first experienced the story!

Good casting choice, but one big question though; how will this affect future series of "Sherlock"?

Oh, and another interesting casting rumour; former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoy has been in meetings with Jackson to play the wizard Radagast!

The hobbit to start shooting?

Holy shit. I read that sentance, and all I could picture was Bilbo firing off an M240 with a red bandana at some dudes. Orcs.

F**KING YES.

Sadly, that is not how the tale unravels.

I agree thats a good idea, but that picure is a bad comparison.

I bet that Ian Holm is in it as Bilbo as a cameo maybe at the beginning when gandalf comes back and tells him what happened to the dwarfs.

After arguments and some rioting about the fact they weren't going to be filmed in New Zealand, the NZ authority has struck a pretty sweet deal with them to keep the production there.

Heard rumblings that Tennant was also in the process of being cast. King of the Wood Elves, perhaps?

Quick bump: Cate Blanchett is officially reprising her role as Galadriel.

Second bump: The current announced cast so far.

Huh? How are they gonna fit Legolas in? Was he even in the hobbit? Oh well, maybe mr. Bloom is just bitter from not being in POTC 4.

The rest of the cast....they don't quite look dwarfish, but make up and costumes and stuff can change a lot.

He's gone on record multiple times, along with Kiera Knightley, that both of them wanted to get out of the franchise. That's why people are looking forward to POTC, because it may as well be called It's Jack! And He's going something SILLY.

It all depends which idiotic yet catchy parody song he wants to be involved in.

"Its Jack, and he's going something silly" does sound better than "Strange tides". Reminds me of when I nicknamed the 3rd film "At wit's end".

Anyway, its good that they aren't replacing them with crappy actors as they did in Mummy 3 *shudder*.

And as for "The Hobbit" now under way, yes, very cool indeed.

As excited I am to see this I wonder if the majority of the public will care anymore, after all how long has it been since the last film came out. Also I don't think the source material can support two films well, the best candidate for that in the series was Return and we all know what happened there.
