Universal Options "The Wicked + The Divine" for TV Adaptation
Last week we saw Nori, Ori and Dori, followed by Oin and Gloin. And now, courtesy of MSN Entertainment, comes our first look at two more members of the Company of Dwarves from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: Dean O’Gorman as Fili and Aidan Turner as Kili.
Two of the youngest Dwarves, Fili and Kili have been born into the royal line of Durin and raised under the stern guardianship of their uncle, Thorin Oakensheild. Neither has ever travelled far, nor ever seen the fabled Dwarf City of Erebor. For both, the journey to the Lonely Mountain represents adventure and excitement. Skilled fighters, both brothers set off on their adventure armed with the invincible courage of youth, neither being able to imagine the fate which lies before them.
The two-movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy novel features an ensemble cast led by Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey. It also stars Richard Armitage, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Barry Humphries, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood and Andy Serkis.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens on Dec. 14, 2012, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again on Dec. 13, 2013.
