So many possibilities! [In reply to] Can't Post

I will say I am a bit confused by the idea of doing two movies. It seems to open so many different possible avenues that it makes my head spin. I guess that is one reason I am not the director nor the producer.

This is the best of all possible worlds for The Hobbit as far as I'm concerned. Dreams do come true - have faith everyone. This will be a great ride - and yes, you CAN go home again! It feels just like...1999 Wink

Yahoo announcement regarding the 2nd Hobbit film [In reply to] Can't Post

www.yahoo.com posted the same story of del Toro officially taking the helm for The Hobbit movies, at this link:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080425/ap_en_mo/film_hobbit_del_toro

The VERY INTERESTING thing is the blurb at the bottom of the article, where it states:

Please note that this version DELETES INCORRECT reference to second movie spanning time between "Hobbit" and "Rings"; New Line now says movies are based on book only.

So, does that imply that it will be part 1 and part 2 of The Hobbit from the book?? To me, that's great news, as it will mean there's little chance they'll leave anything out (at least anything important) in the making of the film, as they might to make the first one cover all of The Hobbit in just 3 hours (or less).

I haven't seen this mentioned elsewhere yet. Mayhaps some TORn spies can double check this with "the powers that be"??

The official New Line press release says . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

Speaking of Guillermo del Toro, "He will helm the two films back to back – telling the story of “The Hobbit,” and its sequel, which will deal with the 60-year period between “The Hobbit” and “The Fellowship of the Ring,” the first of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy."

I think Yahoo got yahooed.

It starts again!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Having missed all the excitement of the speculation first time around, before LOTR came out, I look forward to many hearty (and heated!) discussions as The Hobbit movie news progresses!

*rubs hands with glee*

My students will have no idea why I'm so chuffed today. They all know LOTR because of the movies, but none of them have a clue about The Hobbit. I don't even know if there's a Korean translation of it or LOTR available!! I should assign it as a book report, hah! :D

FOUR YEARS ... groan ... groan ... I won't have any fingernails left!

Follow my Korean adventures!

Gradually changed opinion... [In reply to] Can't Post

I have to admit.
I wasn't thrilled, (at all), back in the day when his name was first mentioned. But during this journey, I found myself liking the man, and his movies, more and more.
It has now reached a point, for me, where he's as much part of the "family" as PJ.
So welcome Maestro, and take us home...

Remember how PJ said something like, "No-one had ever shot 3 movies back to back like this before - and now I know why."

Maybe 2 won't be quite so bad Wink
