The Dominion Post, a New Zealand newspaper, and have reported that Sir Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis (Smeagol) are on board for the Hobbit. Both actors have added the film to their movie lists on their websites and have met and spoke with Del Toro. It's good to have familiar actors reacting their characters in the Trilogy.

Guillermo del Toro has been signed up to direct The Hobbit and its sequel

Upon completion of his current project... del Toro will be moving to New Zealand for four years, where he will oversee production of the two films with Executive Producer Peter Jackson, as well as creature and effects house WETA Workshop. He will follow Jackson's filmmaking model and shoot both movies back-to-back.

So, PJ fans will be happy to note he's still in there, but it'll be interesting to see what del Toro does.

Read about it here. Discuss here.

Thanks Calenraug!
