It seems the screenplay has roughly grouped the dwarves.

1) Thorin
2) the "Veterans" - represented mostly by Balin in terms of dialogue but including others shown in the battle flashback: Dwalin, Oin, Gloin and maybe Bifur
3) the "Rookies" - Fili & Kili with Kili (serving as obvious analogue to Thorin) getting the focus of Film One.
4) the "Island of Misfit Toys" - with Bofur taking the lead (in terms of dialogue) for Bombur, Ori, Dori & Nori. We haven't seen their backstory yet.

This framework relieves the movies of having to have a fully developed story arc for each dwarf but allows us to get to know each of them as individuals and their relationships with each other.

If we are going to see Gimli at Bo5A (is that confirmed?) then that will obviously provide the occasion for Oin and Gloin to have a few interesting scenes.
