Seems that some the rumours circling about the ‘net and the news might have a bit of validity. MGM has announced–or at least Variety is reporting that MGM has announced–that they intend on making The Hobbit in “one or two installments”. It seems they’ll likely be teaming with New Line Cinema, and making every attempt possible to get Peter Jackson to direct it.
Why haven’t we heard more about The Hobbit in the last 2 years? There was an issue between MGM and New Line regarding the rights to filming The Hobbit… hopefully, that issue has been fully cleared up, and we can anticipate an all new Tolkien film in the next few years!
Stay tuned for more info!
