Svenska filmstjärnan Mikael Persbrandt kan ni bli en internationell stjärna. Och det är nog på tiden, att andra utanför Sveriges gränser få se denna karismatiska skådespelare.

Expressen skriver:
- Rollen som Beorn är ikonisk och Mikael var vårt förstaval. Efter att ha sett honom läsa för rollen kan vi inte föreställa oss någon annan för den här karaktären, säger Jackson enligt news.com.au.


Det är allså Peter Jackson som skall göra de två filmerna med titel The Hobbit. De utspelar sig precis osm boken Bilbo innan Sagan Om Ringen, Sagan Om De Två Tornen och Sagan Om Koungens Återkomst.

IMDB skriver om Cate:
Cate Blanchett had better start brushing up on her Elvish. The Australian actress has signed on to the cast of director Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy epic The Hobbit, reprising the role of the ethereal elf Galadriel that she played in Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. The announcement of Blanchett’s casting comes as something of a surprise, since the character of Galadriel doesn’t actually appear in Tolkien’s novel. Then again, there are virtually no female characters in the book whatsoever, so Jackson is clearly looking to balance out the two-part film somewhat in terms of gender.

Klar för The Hobbit är även Ian McKellen, som gör coemback som Gandalf. Han skriver på hemsida:

“The Hobbits, two films, start shooting in New Zealand in February 2011. Filming will take over a year. Casting in Los Angeles, New York City and London has started. The script too proceeds. The first draft is crammed with old and new friends, again on a quest in Middle Earth.”

Filmerna kommer spelas in i 3D RED, här är en del av press releasen:

PETER JACKSON’S “THE HOBBIT” TO BE SHOT ON EPIC!
Peter Jackson’s two film adaptation of The Hobbit will be shot in 3D using RED DIGITAL CINEMA’S soon to be released EPIC Digital Cameras.

The successor to RED’s industry changing RED ONE, the EPIC has 5K resolution, can shoot up to 120 frames per second and has a new HDRx™ mode for the highest dynamic range of any digital cinema camera ever made. Taking everything they had learned from building their first camera, RED designed the EPIC from scratch and have produced a smaller, lighter camera that is an order of magnitude more powerful.

The Hobbit will be amongst the first productions in the world to use the EPIC and at least thirty cameras will be required by the 3-D production. The EPIC’S small size and relatively low weight, makes it perfect for 3-D – where two cameras have to be mounted on each 3D rig.

The director also confirmed the casting of Swedish actor Mikael Persbrandt as shape-shifter Beorn.

He said: "The role of Beorn is an iconic one and Mikael was our first choice for the part. Since seeing him read for the role we can't imagine anyone else playing this character."

Also among the latest actors to be cast in the movie are Ken Stott, Sylvester McCoy, Ryan Gage, Jed Brophy and William Kircher.

Ken will play Dwarf Lord Balin, former 'Doctor Who' star Sylvester is wizard Radagast the Brown, Ryan will be Drogo Baggins and Jed and William will star as dwarves Nori and Bifur respectively.

They join the already cast Martin Freeman - as lead character Bilbo Baggins - Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner, James Nesbitt, Rob Kazinsky, Graham McTavish, John Callen, Stephen Hunter, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton and Adam Brown.
