Weaving Comments on The Hobbit Trilogy

While promoting his next film Cloud Atlas, Hugo Weaving (Elrond) spoke with Collider about various other projects including The Hobbit Trilogy. He commented that the Battle of Five Armies has not yet completely filmed and that he knows about as much how Peter Jackson will create the three films as we do. He is mostly out of the loop because he had finished filming his part in the 4-5 weeks he was on set.
Collider: When did you find out that The Hobbit movies would be a trilogy, and what were your thoughts about that?
HUGO WEAVING: I found out The Hobbit was going to be a trilogy quite recently, when everyone else found out about it. Originally, when I said goodbye to Pete [Jackson] in L.A., I said, “I’ll see you on The Hobbit,” and he said, “Well, I’m not doing The Hobbit.” And then, it was, “We are doing The Hobbit, but I’m not going to direct it.” And then, it was, “Well, I am directing it now.” And then, it was, “Actually, we’re doing The Hobbit in two films.” So, when I went to shoot it out there, there were two scripts and two films. Now, I’ve just found out, not that long ago, when it was announced. He said, “Well, we’ve got all this fabulous material and these wonderful people.” They hadn’t filmed the final battle sequence yet, which would have been at the end of 2. For a number of reasons, they decided that there are three films in there. I hope there are. I don’t know. I was truly there for four or five weeks and enjoyed myself, and went home again. My knowledge of the workings of Middle Earth, at the moment, are very minimal.
