Elijah Wood Confirmed as Frodo
The news broke early this morning: Elijah Wood
has been officially cast as Frodo in Lord of the Rings. The Insider has been able
to confirm this with New Line, as well as confirm that Sean Connery has officially passed
as Gandalf and Anthony Hopkins may be up for the plum wizard role.
As the Hollywood Reporter states, this project
marks a major commitment from Wood, since principal photography will last more than a year
on each film. Images of Elijah Wood are available below and in our Images area.
