Ian McKellen treats press to ‘Hobbit’ buzz

HollywoodNews.com: Sir Ian McKellen, aka Gandolf in “Lord of the Rings,” seems to be the go-to guy when it comes to news on “The Hobbit” which has been in limbo due to the MGM sale and a changeover in directors.

After expressing concern that the film might be stalled, McKellen offers up some hope: “The aim is to start filming in January.”

McKellen also told The Bolton News that he will not be “sitting waiting” around for the production to start. So giddy-yap Peter Jackson, per McKellen’s order.

“The Hobbit” will be shot in two installments. British actor Martin Freeman is still in negotiations to play Bilbo Baggins.

“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy has made $1.03 billion at the global box office.
