Fans were ecstatic last week when Elijah Wood confirmed his return as Frodo Baggins in The Hobbit. Now, the actor has spoken out on his feelings for the project, revealing that he has not yet read a script for Peter Jackson's prequel at this time.

Here are his words from yesterday, when he was spotted at the Fox/FX Television Critics Association in support of his upcoming FX series Wilfred:

"We thought we were finished and the character doesn't even exist in [the book of] The Hobbit, so it was not even a pipe dream to imagine the possibility would be there for me to reprise the role of Frodo. But they've come up with something that I think is kind of interesting and I think very fitting that doesn't necessarily infringe upon the integrity of the original novel."

About how much screen time Elijah believes he will have in the upcoming prequel, he said this:

"I think it'll be relatively minimal. That's my impression. I actually haven't read anything yet. I haven't read a script. I have almost as much information as you guys have!"
