Andy Serkis has been in some fantastic movies over the years and has portrayed some great characters but he will always be remembered for his role as Gollum in the hit Peter Jackson trilogy The Lord of the Rings. Now, Andy is set to return to that famous role for the latest Peter Jackson trilogy The Hobbit and Andy has had nothing but kind words to say of Peter.
Serkis explained, “I actually went down there for two weeks to reprise the role of Gollum, and I basically stayed for a year to direct the second unit. So that's thrilling. I'm really, really enjoying that and getting a chance to work with [Jackson] from another angle. I'm being his kind of eyes and years for the second unit, really.”
He added, “We've just been on location for two months shooting the most beautiful places in New Zealand. That's been extraordinary. I love working with Pete, and everything that he's created at WETA. The whole team, the whole outfit in New Zealand in Wellington, is a very, very special, wonderful place that I keep willingly returning to." The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to be released on December 14, 2012.
