The hobbit is about to start filming, but what about Gandalf and Gollum? Find out after the Break!

Hey Everyone I'm Chelsea Cannell and your watching Clevver Movies!

The hobbit films are going into production next month but there were still a few IMPORTANT names who still haven't signed on for the 2 part project!!! Really disturbing, yet Thankfully for fans of the franchise, Both Sir Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis have finalllllly made their commitments! You know that whole, good things come to those who wait? Well they definitely made us wait but it's gonna be GOOOD!

Sir Ian, of course, will be reprising his roll as the wizrd Gandalf, which is a real relief because believe it or not, according to his blog, he was actually thinking about not coming back!

We all know actors like a challenge, and according to his website, McKellen had to think long and hard about taking the part, saying" I kept wondering... was Gandalf what I most wanted to do, more than a new play for instance or indeed a new part? Sequels aren't necessarily as rewarding to act in as their originals!" Thankfully though, he has decided to sign on...good news huh!

Also recently adding his name to the pot, "We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious!" Though it hasn't been "officially" confirmed by anyone in his camp, Word it Andy Serkis has signed on the dotted line to return as Gollum, Gollum! Phew that was close, Can you even imagine the Hobbit without Ian and Andy as Gandolf and Gollum? Yea let's not think about it!

Peter Jackson will hop in the director's chair next month when the production kick starts in New Zealand. So that means we only have (counting on hands 11) 11 long months till Part one hits theaters in December 2011.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait! Let us know what you think about Andy and Ian making their return in the comment section below.

Thanks for watching Clevver Movies, I'm Chelsea Cannell and I'll see you next time!
