The stars of Lord Of The Rings have given director Peter Jackson a promise
they'll return for The Hobbit if the New Zealand director decides to complete
the JRR TOLKIEN saga - even though their Rings characters weren't born when the
story takes place.
Jackson has hinted that he would be interested in adapting the revered
British author's pre-Lord of The Rings story into a movie, and now his Hobbit
stars are pushing him to go for it.
Scottish actor Billy Boyd, who played Hobbit PIPPIN in the Lord of The
Rings films, says, "People want it so much. There was talk of us playing our
characters' relatives. I'm sure we'd all make ourselves free for that."
And Jackson would be able to cut down on the on-set costs if his Hobbits
returned - they're considering buying a communal property in New Zealand.
Elijah Wood explains, "A lot of us are actually thinking about going in on
property in New Zealand."
