Hobbit movie news

Thanks to sian265   here is a link to some news about PJ's Hobbit movies.

The scuttlebutt is that Ian McKellan will return to play Gandalf (we knew that) and Hugo Weaving will reprise Elrond.  Cate Blanchett may return as Galadriel.  Apparently that's it for the returnees.  So no Orli playing a cameo Legolas.   Also, apparently they have no Bilbo picked out and are casting a wide net for all the characters.   The first script is completed, still working on the second.   The first movie probably won't be in theatres until 2012.  Hey wait, isn't that the year the earth is supposed to end?  Noooooo.
