In “news you guessed, but you’re happy to have confirmed,” Peter Jackson has announced that he’s secured Cate Blanchett to reprise her Lord of the Rings role as Galadriel for his upcoming take on The Hobbit. (Also, Jackson says he just cast relative unknowns Ken Stott, Sylvester McCoy, Mikael Persbrandt, Ryan Gage, Jed Brophy, and William Kircher as various wizards and dwarves, and yes, those people definitely have wizardy, dwarfy names. Congratulations!) Still conspicuously missing from the cast, though: the payday-seeking Ian McKellen. [Coming Soon]

Actors guilds including SAG, AFTRA and several international unions have issued an alert against the big-budget adaptation of “The Hobbit,” stating that their members “are advised not to accept work on this non-union production.”

Warner Bros. and IMAX Corp. have just issued a joint press release announcing a partnership through 2013 that will include placing upwards of 20 Warner Bros. films into IMAX theaters, as well as conventional theaters. The biggest news to come out of this whole thing is a tentative release date for The Hobbit of December 2013, two years after its initial date of December 2011. We assume part one will debut in 2013 and part 2 in 2014, but the press release doesn’t mention the two-parter and only lists it as simply The Hobbit

While that’s certainly a bummer for you Tolkien freaks, the good news is that both Batman 3 andSuperman are part of this 20-picture deal, which means both of those films will hit theaters at some point between now and 2013. If I were a guessing man, I’d say we’ll probably get Batman 3 during the summer of 2012 and Superman during the summer of 2013. Other films listed include Gravity, Dark Shadows andFury Road (aka Mad Max 4), though none of them were given release dates.
