WASHINGTON - Sir Ian Mckellen may appear in ‘The Hobbit’ following an update of his professional website.
The star has updated his personal website implying he has joined ‘The Hobbit’.
The British actor - who has portrayed bearded wizard Gandalf in all the previous ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies - has not been certain for the troubled prequel to the films, but his website McKellen.com has now updated its 2010 Film section implying he will take part in the movie shoot in February 2011.
“THE HOBBIT’s, two films, start shooting in New Zealand in February 2011. Filming will take over a year. Casting in Los Angeles, New York City and London has started. The script too proceeds. The first draft is crammed with old and new friends, again on a quest in Middle Earth. (sic),” Contactmusic quoted the website as saying.
“I am not under contract no. I’m not going to say any more than that because it might complicate things!” the actor said.
“So I would say - at the moment - no, I am not under contract. I’m not saying any more than what I’ve said.” (ANI)
