Sir Ian McKellan won’t wait long for The Hobbit

Could the MGM Delays on the Hobbit claim another key player to the game. Gandalf isn’t getting any younger, and Sir Ian McKellan, happily performing on stage says he wont wait forever.

Live for Films says:

Guillermo del Toro recently left, meaning there is no director. The studio are trying to convince Peter Jackson to take the helm. Meanwhile, Hobbiton has been rebuilt and Sir Ian McKellan is over in New Zealand in the play Waiting for Godot.

With no exact date for filming to begin McKellan makes it known in th clip below that he won’t wait around forever.

So if it takes too long, Sir Ian may walk too? I have always said that ANY role is replaceable, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

I predict that this movie will NOT be made for some time, but it will be made.

Time Warner has a generous offer on the table to buy MGM outright, but its debtors don’t like the number. They might have to flinch soon and give in if they want to get any money at all.

The Hobbit is the biggest potential film who’s fate lies in the balance.
