The Lord of the Rings: after Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood leaving to resume his role of Frodo on this sole condition
Announcement of the revival of a Lord of the Rings film seriesby Warner Bros. in collaboration with New Line Cinema and Embracer Group, and (potentially) directed by Peter Jackson, provoked a small earthquake in the Hollywood ecosystem. Actor Andy Serkis who plays Gollum was the first to show his excitement. This time, it's Elijah Wood's turn to express his feelings at; with regard to a possible reprise of the role of Frodo. A plausible idea, but to a very precise condition.
New movies starring Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis?
While Amazon Prime (rights holders of J.R.R. Tolkien's Appendices and Silmarillon) continues to exploit around its series The Rings of Power, with filming on its second season underway. last October, and its first information revealed, Warner Bros. made a thunderous announcementannouncing its partnership with Embracer(which bought Middle-earth Enterprises, embarking with the rights to broadcast and adapt The Lord of the Rings) in order to be able to produce several films centered around the flourishing universe of the British novelist. >
If for the time being, we do not know precisely which projects are on the table, (although we have recently made a small ranking of the most credible subjects) , we know thatWarner intends to bring back Peter Jackson (at the origin of the 2 trilogies) to; spearheading this major new plan. A life-saving return that could convince almost everyone, and not just the fans. Indeed, the actor Andy Serkis, the interpreter of Gollum, announced; that he was ready to getting back into character provided that Peter Jackson is also in the game.
“if by chance, other films were to feature Frodo, I would be in, yes”
Another emblematic actor of Lord of the Ringsfollowed him not. This is Elijah Wood, world famous for his role of Frodo Baggins. Asked to About a possible return under the Warner Bros. flag, the latter showed himself to be rather enthusiastic about the idea of stacking up again, but to new story condition: “A reboot… I'm not sure that's relevant, but if by chance other films were to feature Frodo, I would be in, yes”.
As a reminder, Elijah Wood appeared in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in 2012. This required the teams to resort to digital rejuvenation techniques. he enthusiasm that the 42-year-old actor may have for reprising his role, one wonders on what occasion Frodo could be reintegrated into the story.
Indeed, at At the end of Return of the King, Frodo leaves Middle-earth to join the Eternal Lands of Valinor. The scriptwriters would then have to bring him back to Middle-earth in the event of a postology. theLord of the Rings trilogy. On the other hand, concerning a prequel, it is hard to imagine its return as an even younger version of Frodo.
