To hell with the video game, it needs a Lego set
There will be this summer, hence the preview.
Travellers Tales, the studio behind the games, put together a tech demo for LEGO Hobbit about three years ago, long before LEGO even had the LotR license. I'd like to think that that might have motivated LEGO to pursue the license.
Ohhh, I really really hope they do a game.
Slightly off topic, but Nicolas Cage was almost in Lord of the Rings.
The transcript doesn't elaborate on what role he was considered for because it was fan submitted question interview. All I have to say thank god he turned it down.
On the other hand, he would have fit it in perfectly in The Matrix...
"Am I getting throoooooough to you, Eowyn?"
Something about Nic Cage screams "he doesn't belong in any movie set in the past or a medieval like fantasy setting". There's just something too modern about him. He could do something set in the future though.
I agree that was why season of the witch sucked so much not because of RON.
Could've been great. I'm pretty sure the awesomeness of a Nicholas Cage performance is directly proportional to the ridiculousness of the wig he wears.
Billy Connolly Joining cast
Ooooh, great choice.
I hope they include a flashback of the War of Dwarves and Orcs. Dain and Thorin play big roles in that.
Azog, who led the Orcs in that war, has apparently been cast, so it does sound like we'll be getting a flashback to it. Probably something akin to how they handled the War of the Last Alliance in LOTR.
My dad's been a fan of Billy Connolly since the 1970s - he'll love seeing Billy in The Hobbit!
Isn't this a bit late to be casting people? This film's been in production for months already. Is it possible Billy's replacing someone?
Dain's part doesn't come until late in the story, so it's probable that they didn't need to cast him until now.
Maybe he's in part 2?
Wow, this is awesome news. I've loved everything I've seen him in.
I didn't think it was possible, but I'm looking forward to these films all the more!
I fucking HATE Billy Connolly. This is the first disappointing news I've read about this movie.
I've been a fan of his since he took over from Johnny Fever as the Teacher on that 1980s Sitcom Head of the Class
He was funny in the 1970s, hasn't been funny in years. And he's turned into a total prima-donna. Walked offstage last week because he got heckled, made tasteless jokes about the hostage Ken Bigley while he was awaiting beheading in Iraq, then took the hump when audience members objected. Tosser.
