We knew that Legolas would be playing a part in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit even though he was not part of the book.
However, since we first heard of the news, Bloom had not been officially signed on.
Collider recently spoke with Bloom who said that while things still aren’t 100% official, the actor is confident that he will be seeing Jackson again.
Orlando did say that he has looked through the script and that he has to “grow [his] hair really long and blonde again.”
Bloom is kind of like Saoirse Ronan, where she is also on board, but not officially signed in. Production is already underway down in New Zealand, so we should be hearing news soon.
