Geez, remember when McKellen had "confirmed" this on his site but had to take it down because there were no contracts signed? And GB convinced me that McKellen was just trying to pressure the studios. <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> As worried as I am about some things with the films, it's a nice feeling for them to have come this far and for things to be much more certain. :mrgreen: It's been a journey even for fans to come this far... :ugeek:

At the very least he provided us with more rumors to help keep me interested during the Dark Days when we didn't know if the project was moving forward or not. 8-)
I'm dead serious. :| McKellen has been working as hard as PJ to shove the studios into gear. By confirming his casting long before the films had even been greenlit he set a fire under the studios' arses. I swear, because of McKellen, the studios knew they would have a ****storm of angry Fans rioting outside their headquarters if the didn't eventually get their act together. And it seems my prediction that eventually WB would take over the rights entirely has apparently come true. [b:38ci59q6]GB[/b:38ci59q6]
