It is also claimed that Ian MacKellen, Andy Serkis, and Hugo Weaving are being considered for the cast.
A bold, surprising claim regarding "The Hobbit" has been brought up by a blog focused on 3D motion pictures called MarketSaw. The site states to have obtained info that Peter Jackson will indeed take helming duties for the project and shoot it in 3D, adding that the New Zealander will split it up into two different parts.
Seemingly very confident on the tidbit, Marketsaw even assured its readers to be one hundred percent sure that this is happening. It further said that Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, and Hugo Weaving are all being eyed to reprise their "Lords of the Rings" trilogy roles for the prequel though no names have been cast yet.
As for the release date, scooper for the site speculated that the first film could be released in 2010 and the second one the year after. In addition, the person also informed that three "Lord of the Rings" movies would be converted into 3D as well with a plan to launch them between 2012 and 2014.
An official announcement is said on the site to come up soon. Well, guess all we can do for now is just wait and see for it to really strike the web. Stay tuned to AceShowbiz for any future info about this subject.
