www.stuff.co.nz reported confirmed a bit of news that I have thought should have happened way earlier.
Hugo Weaving will reprise his role as Elrond the elf for the two-part Hobbit movie now being shot in Wellington. The Hobbit spokeswoman Melissa Booth confirmed that Weaving would feature in Jackson’s 3-D prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The confirmation came after reports circulated that Weaving was spotted in Wellington last week.
And Peter Jackson even mentioned the meeting that happened between Weaving and him on his Facebook Page with a snap taken of both of them together [read more on this here]. So naturally, fans knew an announcement was brewing.
In June 2009, when Jackson was to be executive producer of The Hobbit, then-director Guillermo del Toro said Weaving would be part of the movie.
And now we know he is. Yay again!
