Guillermo del Toro Opens Up More Plans for 'Hobbit'


Discussing his upcoming J.R.R. Tolkien's adaptation project, the Mexican director spoke out about his plan on the creatures, story and casting.

So far, details shared about the latest J.R.R. Tolkien's adaptation movie "The Hobbit" didn't provide much about the movie aside from the fact that it will follow Bilbo Baggins' adventure in reclaiming a treasure stolen by dragon Smaug. Yet, recently director Guillermo del Toro provided fans with more clues into his concept for the upcoming fantasy flick.

Sharing the special scoop about Warner Bros. Pictures' film at the 34th Saturn Awards on June 24, the filmmaker talked about the creatures, story and even casting. Known for his amazing realization of monsters in "Hellboy" and "Pan's Labyrinth", the 43-year-old revealed that he plans on presenting incredible new creatures. "I plan to bring myself to The Hobbit," he gushed. "No doubt about that."

Concerning the story, the director of the forthcoming "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" noted that his "Hobbit" movie will have a dark tone thus its material won't be kid-friendly. "Tolkien had, in the last third of the book - I wouldn't say an edge, but had a somber tone that normally would not conjure the term 'family'," he explained. Additionally, on the casting rumor, the producer of "The Orphanage" made it clear that he is open to everyone who is suitable for the movie stating, "We'll cast whoever seems to fit the pages."

To be produced by "Lord of the Rings"'s Peter Jackson, "Hobbit" will be the first of two movies based on Tolkien's novel of the same name. It is said to have actors, Ian McKellen who will reprise his role as Gandalf, and Andy Serkis as Gollum. The tidbit has been set to be released on December 1, 2011.
