UPDATE: Casting of The Hobbit to Begin in New Zealand on Monday

by Dec 12, 2009The Hobbit (Movies)

UPDATE 12/14/09: Looks like this casting call was a bit premature–no auditions were held today, and don’t look to be held anytime in the immediate future.  We’ll go ahead and make sure we post the news when it’s definitely been finalized!

Acting-Auditions.org  today posted an announcement saying that casting will commence this next week, starting Dec. 14!  Along with this announcement comes the included news that filming is scheduled to begin around May or June (the article says 2011 but I’m certain they mean 2010)… The question, of course, is will YOU submit your resume!?


Here’s the details:

Casting is scheduled to begin next week, December 14, 2009 on the upcoming MGM Studios feature film “The Hobbit” Part I. The project is now being developed as two films, and principal photography is tentatively scheduled to begin in New Zealand around May or June, 2011.

Please submit photos and resumes by mail only.
No phone calls or personal drop-offs.
