Is There a Curse of THE HOBBIT Movie?

Some think so.  And here’s another bit of evidence to add to the pile from P.J.’s Facebook page:

I am sad to report that Rob Kazinsky, who was cast in the role of Fili, is having to leave The Hobbit and return home, for personal reasons.  Rob has been terrific to work with and his enthusiasm and infectious sense of humour will be missed by all of us. I should say that Rob’s departure will not affect ongoing filming of The Hobbit, nor will it impact work done to date, as we had yet to film much of Fili’s storyline. At the moment we are shooting scenes featuring Bilbo without the Dwarves, which will give us time to find a new Fili. I’ll keep everyone posted with updates as they come.

Cheers,

Peter J

If stuff like this continues expect the curse talk to ratchet up!

  1. I hope there isn’t a curse! Apparently this same sort of thing happened when filming the first Lord of the Rings – the original person cast to play Aragon pulled out, and most people seem to agree that this benefited the film anyway. And lets be honest, Rob Kazinsky? Not the greatest of talents imho!
