I have to agree with you, [In reply to] Can't Post

there's no time to rebuild the entire Hobbiton-set in another country when they want to start filming TH in February, and they certainly can't fold up the entire set, and transport it to somewhere else.Tongue Imo they certainly will not shoot the Hobbiton scenes in NZ, and the other scenes in another country, because if PJ is shooting TH anywhere else than NZ, he will definitely not return for the Hobbiton scenes to NZ. So if they're saying TH willl start filming in February, it WILL be in New Zealand!

Excellent news! :) And now that Variety has posted it too, it looks very true indeed.

"We shall be bruised and battered to pieces, and drowned too, for certain!" they muttered. "We thought you had got some sensible notion, when you managed to get hold of the keys. This is a mad idea!"

I can't read it..... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not fond of these industry magazines that protect their content from non-subscribers. Why bother putting it online if you aren't going to let people read it?


Anyhow, crossing fingers that Xo get's confirmation and posts before I leave work today, that will really make my weekend, to be sure.

Official statement [In reply to] Can't Post

http://www.stuff.co.nz/4241119/The-Hobbit-is-back

  • The announcement was made today jointly by New Line Cinema - which bankrolled The Lord of the Rings - and its parent company Warner Bros.
  • “Exploring Tolkien’s Middle-earth goes way beyond a normal film making experience” Jackson said, "It’s an all-immersive journey into a very special place of imagination, beauty and drama.
  • "We’re looking forward to re-entering this wondrous world with Gandalf and Bilbo - and our friends at New Line Cinema, Warner Brothers and MGM”.
  • “There is no human being on the planet as qualified as Peter Jackson to direct these films,” said Warner Bros president Alan Horn.
