Elijah Wood Might Be in a 'Hobbit'

Frodo Baggins!? In The Hobbit!? Is this January All-Pranks Friday!? NO, it is not! In a story about Warner Bros. footing the bill for bankrupt MGM's prequel to the NerdQuest Trilogy, Deadline mentions that Elijah Wood is "possibly" in talks to return to the franchise. Could this mean Frodo makes an appearance at the end of the second Hobbit film, bridging the gap between those films and the Lords of Rings? Will Peter Jackson turn the whole thing into a sitcom flashback, with Wood playing his own father and mother (Drogo Baggins and Primula Brandybuck, obviously) thanks to a goofy mustache and a ladywig? Man, I sure hope so.
