In the latest edition o Total Film Magazine, James McAvoy reveals he would like to play a younger Gandalf if prequel as ever made. (Before getting too excited – or not – Christopher Tolkien is pretty adamant he would never sell the film rights to the Silmarillion.)

From TotalFilm.com:

“I’d like to play Gandalf,” he told us, laughing.

‘Gandalf: Origins’, we offer? “It’s called The Silmarillion! It’s a collection of poems and songs that chart the ancient history of Middle-earth. My true geek is coming to the fore, but they’re really, really beautiful stories.

“In part of that is the genesis of Gandalf, or Mithrandir, or Stormcrow, or any of his many, many names. Anyway, maybe that’s the one!”

Would McAvoy make a good Gandalf? Do you think the Silmarillion rights will ever be sold? Tell us what you think below!
