Report: McKellen to reprise Gandalf role

Report: McKellen to reprise Gandalf role

By RAPHAEL G. SATTER, Associated Press Writer 21 minutes ago

LONDON – Ian McKellen will again take up the robes of Gandalf the Wizard in the cinematic adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s fantasy classic “The Hobbit,” a British film magazine reported Wednesday.

But McKellen’s publicist warned that final arrangements were yet to be made.

“Of course he wants to do it, but nothing’s been agreed or signed,” Clair Dobbs said.

Empire magazine’s Web site quoted McKellen as saying that director Guillermo del Toro told him he would again be playing the white-haired wizard.

“He confirmed that I would be reprising the role,” the magazine quoted McKellen as saying. “Obviously, it’s not a part that you turn down, I loved playing Gandalf.”

McKellen’s sonorous interpretation of Gandalf in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy delighted fans and critics, earning him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor.

The 68-year-old British actor previously told The Associated Press that he would hate to see anyone else play the role.

The “Lord of the Rings” movies, based on the Tolkien book series of the same name, were extremely lucrative, grossing some $2.8 billion at theaters worldwide.

“The Hobbit” is being produced by Peter Jackson, the director of the “Rings” movies, and is likely to be filmed in his home country of New Zealand next year.
