Those are the runes used on the Map.

Which differ from the runes found in the LotR appendices (which were of Elvish origin, rather than Dwarvish**).

So in order to be true to The Hobbit, they will have to use the system based on the Erebor runes!

**Edited to amend this: Daeron invented the runes, the Dwarves adapted them for their own uses. The Erebor runes are a variation of the runic system found in the Appendices.


"I desired dragons with a profound desire"

"It struck me last night that you might write a fearfully good romantic drama, with as much of the 'supernatural' as you cared to introduce. Have you ever thought of it?"
-Geoffrey B. Smith, letter to JRR Tolkien, 1915
