A MoonShadow MoonShadow

Of Hobbits and The Road

Okay – I’m still trying to post every day so as you noticed the content is all over the place.  Today’s post is about two interesting articles I read on line.  This one –  Our Dream Hobbit  Cast talks about who may or may not be cast in The Hobbit movie.  Apparently, Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Guillermo Del Toro are writing the script – not a bad bunch.  The casting of Sir Ian, Hugo Weaving and Andy Serkis, all reprising their roles from LOTR is a done deal.  The big  question is who will be Bilbo.  The author of the article has some interesting suggestions – one of which I like in particular is having Alan Rickman cast as Smaug.  Most excellent suggestion.  Here’s an “unofficial” Hobbit move site that keeps up on the latest if you’re interested:  The Hobbit Movie

This article is about a month old but new to me – in it Viggo talks about The Road and The Hobbit: Mortensen Here he talks about filming on The Road and the possibility of Aragorn turning up in the Hobbit – slim to none but he’s willing if they can work it in.  So Mr. Jackson – please work him in.  Altho’ really I tend to be a bit of purist about stories and as much as I love Mr. M, I wouldn’t want the story of The Hobbit messed with too much.  I was not overly fond of the addition of all the Liv Tyler scenes in LOTR.
