The sequel to “Hobbits” is a real-life adventure about a hobbit who becomes a pirate.
The film will be released on May 25, 2018, by Warner Bros. The title “Hobo” is based on the real-world story of Jack London, who became the first black person to own property in the United States.
“Hobby” director Peter Jackson also is directing the film.
“It’s an absolutely wonderful movie,” Jackson said in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I’ve been a fan of “Hornet,” and I just love “Hobs.””
The Hobbits,” based on J.R.
R Tolkien’s classic fantasy series of books, is based in New York City.
“They’re all the same places. “
We’re really excited to be shooting it in New England,” Jackson added.
“They’re all the same places.
And that’s where we want to do this.”
Jackson said he and co-writer/director Simon Pegg, who plays a hobgoblin named Frodo Baggins, were inspired by the life of a pirate who made a name for himself in the Middle East.
“In my mind, there’s no other pirate like Frodo,” Jackson told EW.
“That’s where I thought I wanted to put myself in the shoes of Frodo.”
Jackson and Pegg will also direct the film, which has a script by Peter Jackson, Peter Dinklage, Peter Robinson, Andy Serkis, Emilia Clarke and others.
Jackson, who will be appearing in the movie, said he has a lot of stories to tell.
“The Hobbit” is set to be released in theaters on July 19.
Jackson has not announced the film’s cast yet.
“This is not a movie I’m telling you because I have so many wonderful actors,” Jackson wrote on Twitter.
“But there is a Hobbit coming to theaters this fall.
