Wood will play Frodo Baggins, the same character he played in The Lord Of The Rings films, even though Frodo doesn’t appear in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel.
“They’ve stretched it out over the course of two films – I’m so curious as to what other elements they’ve woven in, because there are certainly additional works that refer to that same time period that they could weave into it,” he said, speaking to ComingSoon.
“So I’m just very excited to sort of see what the ultimate vision is.”
Now that more characters who weren’t in the novel have been confirmed for the film, we’re also rather curious as to what Peter Jackson is going to do.
