Yesterday Latino Review got a ‘scoop’ which said that Tobey Maguire and his agency were in early talks for him to play Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit. After I read this my first thought was obviously Spider-Man 4. Sam Raimi recently said they were aiming to start shooting in March, and Peter Jackson said last week that The Hobbit is on track to start filming in the first half of 2010. If this rumor is true that would give Tobey Maguire 2-3 months to film Spider-Man 4, which wouldn’t be possible considering filming on Spider-Man 3 took 6 months.
As you were.
