The Hobbit will wrap by 7 July 2012. That’s the date that’s been set for the party, Billy Connolly told entertainment msn.
Connolly, who has been in Australia promoting his animated film Brave, is back in New Zealand to film more of The Hobbit in his role as the warrior dwarf Dain Ironfoot. He’s enjoying his time working with Peter Jackson and says,“He knows what he wants and he stays on the case until he gets it. It’s highly technical and we do a lot of takes. It’s not like normal movies where you just have to get your words right and avoid the furniture.”
He does not know how long he will be in New Zealand but said, “I have an invitation to the wrap party on July the 7th so I think they have ideas of me staying that long.”
With hobbits, elves, dwarves and orcs, that’s going to be some party!
