gollum300It’s been nearly seven long years since we last saw Middle Earth on our cinema screens and we’re getting mighty anxious about the arrival of The Hobbit.

But we have some good news to report on that front this afternoon as Andy Serkis has revealed that filming could begin as early as May 2010. “Wait a minute!” we hear you cry, “that’s only a couple of days away!”

If it’s true that really is excellent news, we think you’ll agree.

“It’s going to happen. I think it’s due to start shooting in May,” he said. “It’s going to be exciting, especially working with new director Guillermo del Toro, who’s fantastic.”

However, Sir Ian McKellen who has signed up to play Gandlf recently claimed that filming would start in July.

“The Hobbit’s two films start shooting in New Zealand in July. Filming will take over a year. Casting in Los Angeles, New York City and London has started. The script too proceeds. The first draft is crammed with old and new friends, again on a quest in Middle Earth,” he said.
