While he still works to untangle the MGM fiasco, Peter Jackson may be moving closer to solidifying the future status of The Hobbit.
Maybe... At least one source is reporting that Jackson is moving towards directing both feature films.
No director doesn't mean that works not getting done.
"It's in production. The sets are ready..."
"In light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming "The Hobbit," I am faced with the hardest decision of my life..."
"We have designed all the creatures, we have designed the sets, the wardrobe. We have done animatics and planned very lengthy action sequences and scary sequences and funny sequences. We are very, very prepared for when it finally is triggered, but we don't know anything until MGM is sold"
The never-ending cascade of hearsay dates for when The Hobbit will start filming continues...
Looks like all the delays in filming have added up to a release date 3 years hence.
The Hobbiton set continues to work toward completion, reports the Matamata Chronicle... good news, of course, but no one can say just when filming will commence there.
Scripts are done, but shooting won't start until late this year, Jackson says.
"The lovely thing about 'The Hobbit' is that the race of the dwarves comes to the forefront in the story, and [we'll depict] the uniqueness of the collection of the dwarves..."
Seems that we'll all be waiting only about 3 months before The Hobbit starts up!
"Del Toro said the film's studio backers were making inquiries about filming the adaptation of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit in 3D and discussions had begun."
Rumors of "Spiderman" star Toby Maguire being cast as Bilbo Baggins are false, even though he says he'd enjoy appearing in the film.
Aspiring actors in New Zealand get their chance to land a role in The Hobbit, scheduled to start filming in May or June!
