Martin Freeman Comments Briefly On THE HOBBIT Sequels And The Return Of SHERLOCK

Talking at tonight's BAFTA's, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey's Martin Freeman looks ahead to working on the next two instalments and reveals when he will return to work on the hit BBC series Sherlock with Star Trek Into Darkness' Benedict Cumberbatch.

Ever since it was confirmed that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit had been extended to a trilogy, we've known that it would mean the cast would have to return for more filming. Well, talking at the BAFTA's tonight, Martin Freeman commented on how he feels about stepping back into the shoes hairy feet of Bilbo Baggins. "It's a film we've not yet finished. People sort of say, 'How was The Hobbit?' and I'm like, 'I'm still doing it!' I've got to go back in late May for another couple of months. It's going to be part of all our lives for a long time." For those of you worried that Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch's big screen success would mean that the superb BBC series Sherlock would be coming to an end, think again. "We start that next month," he confirmed. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is set to be released on December 13th, 2013. and The Hobbit: There And Back Again will follow shortly after on July 18th, 2014.
