“Casting is scheduled to begin next week, December 14, 2009, on the upcoming MGM Studios feature film “The Hobbit” Part 1. The project is now being developed as two films, and principal photography is tentatively scheduled to begin in New Zealand around May or June 2011. Please submit photos and resume by mail only. No phone calls or personal drop-offs.”

Principal Actor Casting:
Liz Mullane Casting
(Address TBA)

Extras Casting:
Miranda Rivers
PO Box 6479
Marion Square
Wellington, New Zealand 6022

The entry also lists associated productions companies, but emphasizes NOT to send resumes and pictures to them or they will likely end up in the trash. If you’re lucky enough to live in New Zealand, best of luck to you! If not, remember that there are requirements you must meet to be eligible to work in New Zealand. You can read more about it in our Hobbit Movie FAQ here.

Do you intend to submit a resume? Discuss it on our chatroom and/or message boards and keep us posted on your progress! Thanks to message board member shadowdog for alerting us to this great news!

I'm a big fan of the films, but I'll wait for the EE. They're the versions I'm used to enjoying at this point; I'm not going to spend $60 or more on truncated cuts. I can wait.

I'll be tempted, but the theatrical cut of The Two Towers doesn't have the epic Boromir/Faramir/Denethor scene in it, among many other excellent additions throughout the trilogy. I'll resist...

Drop the digital copies and the DVD extras discs (along with the MSRP by about half, whatever it might be) and then I'd consider getting this. But as is, buying 9 discs when you really only want three of them is a complete and utter waste.

I wish I could say I'm not going to buy this, I'm going to wait for the EE's, but the truth is I'll probably buckle the minute I see these on the store shelves.

I'm holding out for the EE, no matter what. Never got the Theatrical cut on DVD. Waited for the EE to go cheap and that's when I got it.

I caved and sold my EE DVD set for as much as this new BR set will cost anyway, so I'm in.

Can't wait to see these in HD glory, only a few more weeks!

Why don't you use your EE DVD set proceeds toward the EE BD set, when it comes out?

Yeah, that's a lot of content to lose in favor of an HD picture. It'll be interesting to see the reviews on these... just to give us an indication of what an eventual EE release will give us.

I really don't care about all the extras; some of them are good but I don't need to see every step of the process they did.

I'll enjoy the TEs in HD and look forward to getting the EEs down the road again, fuck it. I've seen too much HD material at this point to watch these in standard-def anymore.

I'm more interested in the extended versions of the films themselves than the extras, even though they're probably the best extras I've seen in any package.

Hell, I'd buy movie-only EE on blu. Especially if it were one box for the whole thing.

Packaging and screenshots over at AVS forums. Initial impressions are FOTR is underwhelming, while ROTK looks great. And the packaging... prepare to be disappointed.

...what's wrong with the packaging? Looks like blue cases in a slipbox. That sounds perfect to me. Sure beats every other WB box set ever.

Re: Lord of The Rings on Blu-Ray in 2010!

^ According to the picture GizmoDVD posted in the AVS thread, inside the outer slipcase there are only two Blu-ray cases ... one for the movie discs and special features and one for the digital copies. Great, so that's two multi-disc cases with overlapping hubs and extra trays ... Ugh..

Also, there's a link from Gizmo's post with more images of the packaging but for some reason it can't be posted here correctly.
