The Hobbit: During a recent sit down with UK chat show hosts Richard & Judy, actor Ian McKellen spoke briefly about the forthcoming Lord Of The Rings prequel, The Hobbit...

"There is currently a situation where two companies own the rights, but when that's sorted out Peter (Jackson) and I will sit and talk it over. We've mentioned it recently and Peter is looking forward to getting it into production...It won't be long until I have to put on that blue hat again and become Gandalf - Gandalf The Grey that is!".

Stay tuned to Movieweb for more on The Hobbit coming soon...
