McKellen confirms 'Hobbit' involvement
Sir Ian McKellen has confirmed that he will be starring as Gandalf in the forthcoming film adaptation of The Hobbit.
Speaking at the European premiere of The Dark Knight in London last night, McKellen said that his involvement is due to be finalised in the near future.
"Well, I haven't had the contract yet but it's everyone's intention that I play Gandalf so yes, I will be returning to the role," McKellen told Empire. "Although it's not until 2010, I'm very much excited about returning."
McKellen also revealed that he is looking forward to working with Guillermo Del Toro, who will be directing the movie.
He said: "Well, if you’re not going to have Peter Jackson, who else can handle the job? To get an international film-maker of his standing who adores the original trilogy, well I don't think you could possibly find a better replacement."
