According to MTV’s movie blog, there’s a whole lotta interest coming out of Elijah Wood and it’s all directed at Peter Jackson’s follow on from (yet still the prequel to) Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit. The curly-haired lad who played the pint sized Frodo in the epic movies has not spoken directly to Jackson, but emails have been exchanged on the subject, expressing interest and chatting about the contents of the movies.
This news confirms that which rumour mills have been spinning out ever since news hit that there would be a double feature made out of The Hobbit, instead of a single movie, that the second movie will be a bridge between The Hobbit and the first installment in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring. However, the years between those two installments feature very little information about Wood’s character, other than news of his parents’ deaths and his move to be with Bilbo, so the question remains, just how much of Frodo will there be in this new film? Wood doesn’t seem to care, all he seems to want is to go back and see his friends again.
