The BBC has just confirmed via a series of Tweets, using the hashtag #221back (confused? See the featured image above) that the hit show Sherlock will indeed return.
Details are still a bit sketchy, but it's pretty clear that Andrew Scott as Moriarty will feature heavily – you may remember his appearance right at the end of last season, as a teaser for the new season.
The fact that he took over the BBC's twitter account for the duration of the tweets may have been a pretty obvious clue too!
Filming is due to begin on January 2015. Whilst this does appear to be a long way off yet, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise really, considering how difficult it must be to get both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch together at the same time!
What we do know is that there will be a one-off special, most likely a Christmas Special, and this will be followed by a three episode fourth season.
Stay tuned for official release dates the minute there come available!
This is still pretty fresh, so feast your eyes on the announcement trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit whilst it’s still news and before it goes viral worldwide.
The Hobbit will tell the story of a young Bilbo (Martin Freeman) who sets of on a journey with Gandalf and 13 dwarves, and ends up with him finding the One Ring… Also starring are Ian McKellan, Luke Evans, Richard Armitage and James Nesbitt.
Of course, the full title for the Lord of the Rings prequel will be The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and is due for release on the 14th December 2012 in the UK and US. Our New Zealand cousins get the World Premiere on the 26th November 2012. Part 2 – The Hobbit: There and Back Again – will follow in December 2013.
Back in 2003, Wellington New Zealand held the world premiere for The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. Well, now Peter Jackson has confirmed that Wellington will once again play host to a world premiere, this time The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, on the 14th December 2012.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey stars Martin Freeman as Bilbo, alongside a huge cast of stars including many returning from the Lord of the Rings trilogy such as Ian McKellan as Gandalf, Orlando Bloom as Legolas and Cate Blanchett as Galadriel. Peter Jackson once again directs.
Part two, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, and will be released on 13th December 2013.
I’m sure I don’t need to tell anyone that filming has already begun in New Zealand on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the two-part movie prequel to The Lord of The Rings trilogy. At the All Action, No Plot Movie Blog, we’re very excited…
What you may not know however, is that Martin Freeman (of The Office fame) has landed the plum role of Bilbo Baggins. In fact, Empire Magazine has just published the first photos (Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures) of Martin as Bilbo, and because they looked so good, I thought I should share with you. Note, you can just about make out Richard Armitage (Spooks) in the background as Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the dwarf company.
