Orlando Bloom returns to Middle Earth

Bloom in final talks for The Hobbit

Orlando Bloom is reportedly in final negotiations to reprise his LOTRs role in The Hobbit.

Bloom played the bow-and-arrow wielding Legolas in Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and is apparently in line for a return to Middle-earth as part of the Warner Bros prequels.

Deadline have suggested that his role will be “more than a cameo”.

The news follows yesterday’s confirmation that Cate Blanchett will reprise her role in the film.
