Exclusive: Liv Tyler Talks THE STRANGERS 2 and THE HOBBIT

Liv Tyler Talks THE STRANGERS 2 and THE HOBBIT slice

With director James Gunn’s Super opening April 1, I was able to sit down with most of the cast this morning to talk about the film.  Next week I’ll be posting the full interviews, but I wanted to get what Liv Tyler said about The Strangers 2 and The Hobbit online today.

As some of you are aware, the first Strangers was made for under $10 million and it went on to make over $80 million at the worldwide box office.  With that kind of success, it’s no surprise that Rogue Pictures has been talking about making a sequel.  Early reports pegged Liv Tyler returning and that filming could begin this year.  However, Tyler told me, “I don’t know anything about…they’ve been talking about it forever and I know there is a screenplay that Bryan Bertino wrote which I’ve read part of but not the whole…I don’t know if it’s ever going to happen.  Bryan is not directing it and I’m not really in it.  I’d have to decide, but it’s not about me.”

Regarding The Hobbit, with a number of original cast members coming back, and yesterday’s press release saying that more cast members would be announced, I wondered if we might see Arwen (Tyler’s character in Lord of the Rings) return for even a few moments in either Hobbit film.  According to Tyler, “I haven’t heard from anybody.”  She also didn’t know that filming began today.  More after the jump.

While I could try and paraphrase what Tyler told me, I suggest watching it for yourself.  She was a great interview and she even sang when I asked what’s her go to karaoke song.  Again, look for the full interview next week.
