I don't think Del Toro should do the Hobbit and I'm a huge fan of his.

I just feel that The Lord of the Rings world is Jackson-created. If he isn't going to direct then I feel he should hand the reins over to someone who was also involved in creating that world so the look and feel of Middle Earth is retained.

People have mentioned Fran Walsh but what about the other directors of Lord of the Rings. There were after all THREE units. How about Richard Taylor, head of WETA? That man has passion coming out his hair.

While I love Del Toro, he shouldn't be given the keys to Middle Earth unless you want a prequel that runs the risk of looking and feeling completely different to what has gone before it. Some may say that change is a good thing but I think it such an established world, there's a risk of different visions clashing. Del Toro has a very distinctive look and I just can't help but think, it wouldn't exactly work in The Hobbit.

Personally, I'd rather see his take on Tarzan. That's just me though.

That's very, very great news. I was very disapointed when I heard that Jackson wouldn't be doing it, but his replacement is an excellent one. Can you believe it's a couple of years before we'll see this thing?

I really do think the rabid Jackson-fan-hordes would eat his face if he didn't. Also, Andy's the best man for the job. Experience and all that.

I don't remember Doug in the book. Are they creating new characters for the film? Personally, I think the Hobbit has always needed a robot in it. Perhaps one sent from the future to kill the uncle of Frodo.

So who do you think should play Doug? I'd go for James Gandolfini.

Erm... Either that's a cunning ploy to rope in some gullible schmoe (hello), or you don't realise that Doug Jones does the mo-cap work for Del Toro usually (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth etc.).

Doug Jones does not appear in The Hobbit. In fact, The Hobbit contains no one by the nomenclature of "Jones" at all, which kind of kicks the most-popular-name-after-Smith theory in its food-biters.

i'm sure i read someplace that ALL the film rights to tolkiens works revert back to the tolkien estate in 2009(ish),hence new line rushing the hobbit.myself i would prefer the estate to handle the movie,bring jackson FULLY on board and screw the money men and make a film with the book in mind and not money(yup new line i'm talking to you).with a bit of luck these legal procedings will stall the production long enough for new line to miss the 'window' and we can get a tolkien film the book deserves.

Tom Hollander for Bilbo? There have been suggestions for Ian Holm to play Bilbo, I think such a move would be unwise. I believe he was a little too old to play 'young' Bilbo in The Fellowship of the Ring. I also believe Michael Sheen ought to be involved in the two films. Perhaps as a dwarf, Beorn or Bard the bowman?

Tom Hollander is a good idea. Either him or Freeman I think.

casting Bilbo....i'd go for...

James McAvoy, Michael Sheen, Martin Freeman or Gary Oldman.


I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Sheen. He'd nail Bilbo!

I don't think I've posted my thoughts on The Hobbit yet, so I shall do right now.

I've recently been enjoying Howard Shore's utterly mind-blowingly beautiful soundtrack once more (I usually play it now and again) and it has got me more excited than ever for a return to Jackson's Middle Earth. I'm sure Del Toro will do a great job, although I must admit that I'm still a little nervous about his tendancy to want to use silly costumes rather than CGI. I mean, it works well a lot of the time, but some of Del Toro's stuff can look hoky to say the least. Jackson's trilogy had very little hokey in it if you ask me (although CGI vs costumes is another discussion in another forum, but may I add that Jackson obviously used his fair share of practical effects and costumes).

Jackson's films are a beautiful piece of work, highlighted by Shore's amazing score. The Hobbit, I'm sure, will be a very special film although I do worry about the semi-sequel they've got planned. To use a Bilbo-ism; butter scraped over too much bread!

As far as the casting for Bilbo is concerned....I have no idea but none of the names mentioned are very inspired to me. Sheen appears to be the man of the moment but I do not think he would be a decent Bilbo. He hasn't got the right look or build. But then again I have no suggestions myself.

None of the names that are being thrown around excite me at all, with the exception of Sheen. He is just a phenomenal character actor who seems able to effortlessly inhabit the mind frame and idiosyncrasies of any personality he chooses to tackle. In terms of the look I think he is more than suited to it. He is distinctly gentleman like, Bilbo after all being from the upper social circles of the Hobbit community, but he also has great comic timing which, being quite restrained would make him a fantastic Bilbo for me. But it’s bound to be McAvoy. Nothing against him whatsoever and sure he’ll do a fine but for my money, Sheens the man for the job.

With regards to Del Toro, I’m kind of with you on that. I am a huge fan of his Spanish language films but whenever he works on English language projects I always feel that something is lacking! For me, Hellboy are my favourite comics and I was truly elated when he was announced as director. But something went wrong on that for me and the macabre essence of the books seemed to be sacrificed. But hopefully, Jackson will keep a tight grip on the reigns

Hopefully he will embrace all FX techniques as Jackson did to realise Middle Earth once more. And on Shores score, shivers… it’s beyond reproach.

There be internet rumours that Brian Cox has been approached by Del Toro and Peter Jackson to play either Thorin Oakenshield or Balin.

Cox is a excellent and natural choice.

Of course when it comes to historical epics, where Brian Cox goes, so too does Brenden Glesson. I expect both to be cast. Heck, throw James Cosmo in there as well. Get the hat trick.
