Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

Still waiting on Thorin's costume reveal, but until then, here's some small but exciting news:

Elessar sends along a curious tweet from artists/illusionist Derren Brown, not 2 hours ago he tweeted the following:
@DerrenBrown Off to watch some Ian Holm and Christopher Lee being filmed for The Hobbit. HOW EXCITING!
The tweet gives us a little more info on the apparent ‘UK shoot’ taking place sometime soon (maybe even today). Along with news that Elijah Wood is heading to the UK soon, and of course word that Christopher Lee wants to be involved in The Hobbit, save for traveling to New Zealand. No official word can be gleamed from the production (trust me, I tried), let us hope we learn more soon!
TheOneRing.Net (where else?).

I figured they'd do some shooting in the UK specifically to accommodate Lee (whose reasons for not wanting to travel out to NZ are completely understandable). Totally worth it.

Granted my image of Thorin as an old bastard is because of the Rankin/Bass animated movie, but this doesn't quite do it for me. But it always comes down to the performance.

When I read the book as a kid, I also imagined Thorin as an older Dwarf. But as you say, the performance is the thing.

Damn, I was just on my way to post this!

Yeah, I pictured Thorin as being older, too, but I figured they weren't going in that direction once Richard Armitage had been cast. Thorin is actually supposed to be the oldest of the thirteen dwarves.

He kinda looks Klingony to me.

Well Thorin is rather obsessed, so the fanatic Klingon look might be OK.... I also though of him as older, but at this point I'll trust PJ's judgement.

I read the Book of Lost Tales. It's a little strange, very different. Very different even from the Silmarillion, which I've read I think twice. I also read Tales from the Perilous Realm (which is only peripherally related), and something called 'something something' Numenor, sorry my memory's failing this late.

I thought the dwarves were meant to have brightly coloured beards?
