Posted 05.27.11 by reelz
While the elven archer Legolas isn't in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, there's been talk of Orlando Bloom reprising his Lord of the Rings character for some time. Today director Peter Jackson confirmed the Middle Earth news, posting the following as his Facebook update.
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.
