Filming of The Hobbit has finally begun. After numerous production problems, strike threats, talk of location change, and director Peter Jackson’s ulcer surgery, word has reached my ears that the two-part movie has started production.

Martin Freeman will star as Bilbo in this one, and fans of the LotR movie trilogy will see several familiar faces, including Sir Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Elijah Wood as Frodo. Also returning will be Andy Serkis as the Precious-chasing Gollum.

The first movie of The Hobbit is expected to be seen on the big screen sometime late in 2012.
