Jackson Refutes Bilbo Casting Rumors

That didn't take long. The other day rumors were started that the casting of Bilbo Baggins would be announced at the San Diego Comic-Con next week. To no surprise, The Hobbit Executive Producer Peter Jackson has denied the rumor.

"No, we won’t be announcing Bilbo for a little while," he said when we asked about a Comic-Con announcement. "We’re starting to think about casting, but we’re knee-deep in the script right now. And when we do go to actors, they’re probably going to ask to see a script, so we’re powering ahead with getting the first draft done.”

We also asked him what he's planning to do next after The Lovely Bones, but he's not yet sure. "I haven’t yet decided what I’ll be directing after that. At the moment we’re concentrating on writing a couple of little movies with Guillermo [Del Toro]. A couple of small films! (Laughs) And that’s going to take us another few months of writing to do.
