It’s been forever and a day since I picked up J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, so my memory might be off, but I don’t remember Legolas appearing anywhere in the book. That isn’t stopping Peter Jackson from bringing Orlando Bloom back for The Hobbit movie, currently in production in New Zealand.
Ten years ago, Orlando Bloom created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas. I’m excited to announce today that we’ll be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more. I’m thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older—and he doesn’t! I guess that’s why he makes such a wonderful elf.
