Ronan: I haven't signed for Hobbit

Saoirse Ronan has said she is still waiting for a confirmation about The Hobbit film.

The Irish actress is tipped to have a role in Peter Jackson's eagerly anticipated Lord Of The Rings prequel, but claimed she hasn't signed on the dotted line yet.

"No, nothing has actually been confirmed yet," she told the Irish Times.

She added: "I'd love to get a role in The Hobbit. I think everybody in the world would like a role in The Hobbit."

Saoirse, who recently appeared in The Way Back alongside Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess, is rumoured to be playing woodland elf Itaril.

Casting agent Ros Hubbard previously let slip that the actress will be heading to New Zealand to join the rest of the cast, which sees Martin Freeman starring as titular character Bilbo Baggins.

Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis will reprise their roles as Gandalf and Gollum respectively, as will Cate Blanchett as elf queen Galadriel.
