Orlando Bloom is close to agreeing a deal that will see him reprise the role of Legolas in The Hobbit, according to sources.

Bloom played the bow-and-arrow wielding elf in Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and is apparently in line for a return to Middle-earth as part of the Warner Bros prequels.

Deadline adds that Bloom's appearance in the upcoming films will be "more than a cameo".

The news follows yesterday's confirmation that Cate Blanchett will reprise her Lord Of The Rings character Galadriel for the Hobbit two-parter, while Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving and Ian McKellen are also believed to be discussing a return to the series.
