It looks like middle earth won’t be seeing Aragorn in the two-part prequel series of The Hobbit. This may be much to the disappointment of Viggo Mortensen’s fans should the director and producer of the said film version of the J.R.R Tolkien’s novel retain its genuine storyline.
Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings Trilogy has made Lord Aragorn quite the ladies’ man even in contemporary times, as he’s got even this middle earth woman writing this article openly expressing that she wouldn’t mind if the Hollywood version of the classic novel deviates a bit from the written version.
However, Mortensen admits that he does not expect a reprisal of his role although he was approached by Peter Jackson for a possible appearance in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The actor reveals his willingness to have another go at his role, but it all depends on any last minute plans to include his character.
For those who are quite familiar with the written version, many would rather that Hollywood stick to its true storyline. Some familiar faces from Lord of The Rings are still in the roster such as Cate Blanchet, Elijah Wood, Ian Mckellen, Christopher Lee and Orlando Bloom.
As it is, Lord Aragorn is known to have lived more than 200 years in the book, but that doesn’t take his character back to the time of the Hobbits. It may irk some Tolkien fans if the film version takes a whole new spin on this but, if it rakes in more bucks from women eager to catch another glimpse of this handsome King, then let’s leave it up to Hollywood to do it’s magic.
“The Hobbit: An unexpected Journey” is slated to show in theatres December 14, 2012 while its 2nd part “ There and Back Again” is right on schedule for December 13, 2013.
