Looks like this Hobbit movie (the 2-Part prequel to Lord of the Rings) is actually going to be made after all. The original three films grossed a combined $3 billion dollars – just a ludicrous amount of money – and this doesn’t even account for broadcast, merchandise, etc, which will continue indefinitely.
The Hobbit is set to begin shooting on March 21 at Stone Street Studios in New Zealand, but the entire cast assembled in the country about a month ago. Above is your first image of the collected actors.
Other than Martin Freeman in front (from BBC’s The Office), I didn’t know any of the other guys. Head over below for more on the cast and film.
