Slash Film reports here that Sir Ian McKellan spoke recently in London and let slip that he knows something about the 2011 film that many would like to know. He won't say who, but he confirmed that casting is done and he knows who is going to play Bilbo Baggins across from his Gandalf. (Snark, snark).


Variety says that the video game adaptation is back on again, with a new director. Universal is in talks with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to take the chair for the 2010 project, with a script by John Logan. Rumor is that they have slashed the original $160 million budget.
