Along with confirmation from his Rep that Elijah Wood is confirmed for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, we were also told that the actor has joined Stewart Harcourt's adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel Treasure Island.

Wood will play Ben Gun opposite Eddie Izzard in this new version of the timeless tale. Steve Barron will direct the 2-part, four hour mini-series for Sky TV, which will air in the UK. There is no word on when it will air, or if it will be picked up for US distribution.

Elijah will next be seen this summer in the FX sitcom Wilfred, which is based on a popular Australian series about a man's unique relationship with the neighbor's dog. He will also appear in the Sundance short Fight for Your Right (Revisited), which looks at what happened after the infamous Beastie Boys video was shot. Danny McBride and Seth Rogen also appear in that short.
