Lord Of The Rings star Dominic Monaghan is convinced he will be returning to the magical franchise for upcoming prequel The Hobbit along with co-stars Elijah Wood, Sean Astin and Billy Boyd.
The actors played a band of mythical Hobbits in the trilogy but none are featured in JRR Tolkien's prequel novel, which will be adapted for the big screen and directed by Guillermo del Toro.
However, Monaghan is adamant that producers of the epic picture will want to bring back their characters - because they were such a hit with fans.
He tells MTV.com, "They really want us to come back, and I think there's a really strong chance that we might be back.
"We're not in The Hobbit, no, but I think the idea in (the producers') heads is that the trilogy of the Lord Of The Rings films was so beloved by the fans that they're really keen to try to say thank you for the support that they gave to the Lord Of The Rings movies and possibly bring back some of those characters that they know and love."
