Cate Blanchett Melbourne, Jan 10 (ANI): Elijah Wood will revisit his role as Frodo in the upcoming big screen version of ‘The Hobbit’ despite his character not featuring in the book by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Wood has been cast in the two-part Peter Jackson-helmed film, which is a prequel to ‘The Lord of The Rings’ trilogy, reports the Herald Sun.

Frodo is expected to open the movie, possibly reading a book about Bilbo’s adventures, on which the story is based.

Jackson has signed Martin Freeman to play Bilbo Baggins, and Cate Blanchett and Orlando Bloom to reprise their roles as the elves Galadriel and Legolas. (ANI)
