'They have to have a particular type of physical appearance,' says the filmmaker when explaining the reason why it is not easy to find the cast for his upcoming adventure film.

Peter Jackson has recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the casting process for his upcoming film "The Hobbit" that has taken place. Claiming it is not easy to find the depicters of the lead characters, including the hobbit, dwarf and elf, the filmmaker explained, "They have to have a particular type of physical appearance."

During the same occasion, Jackson also affirmed previous statement that the script for the second part of the movie will be delivered around Christmas. Meanwhile, the production is expected to be kicked off in March or April 2010. However, he noted that the schedule could be changed because the shooting should wait for a green light from the studio.

"The Hobbit" will re-create the scenes of the novel, with additional events that make an impact to "The Lords of the Rings", such as the expulsion of Sauron from Mirkwood by The White Council. The first of the fantasy movie is scheduled for December 2011 U.S. release, while the second film, "The Hobbit 2", is expected to hit theaters a year later.
