After much speculation, "Lord of the Rings" star Elijah Wood is now officially set to reprise the character of Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit," his publicist has confirmed to TheWrap. Additionally, Wood has also been set to play Ben Gunn in Stewart Harcourt's adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's adventure novel "Treasure Island."

Steve Barron is directing Sky TV's two-part, four-hour miniseries, which also stars Eddie Izzard.


Wood will next star in FX's new series "Wilfred," and he'll also lend his voice to Disney XD's "Tron: Uprising" and George Miller's "Happy Feet 2," which Warner Bros. is scheduled to release on Nov. 18.

Wood will be at Sundance next month co-starring alongside Seth Rogen and John C. Reilly in Adam Yauch's short film "Fight for Your Right Revisited."

Wood is represented by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Well, he'll play Ben Gunn who is an ex-crew member of pirate Captain Flint's crew.

I'm speculating (hoping) the Treasure Island gig [Elijah and Eddie Izzard together, bliss!!] is a precursor for Elijah mixing it up with work in US AND UK. There are days when I don't think the US deserves him.

There are so many better acting options with better quality in Europe/the UK in my opinion. But everyone wants Hollywood.
