Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens join Guillermo Del Toro penning 'The Hobbit'

It's now official: The Lord of the Rings screenwriting team of Peter Jackson (pictured), Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens will join The Hobbit director Guillermo del Toro to pen the screenplay for the two planned Hobbit movies. Sources tell EW.com that the scribes' deals are all complete and they will commence writing shortly. (With shooting scheduled to begin in Fall 2009 in New Zealand, the quartet better get busy!) The Hobbit will center on Frodo's uncle, Bilbo Baggins, and his initial discovery of the immensely-powerful ring. New Line and MGM plan to release the two films Christmas 2011 and Christmas 2012.

That would be amusing, to say the least.

I am wondering if they'll give Bard a larger part, since he does manage to shoot the dragon down. It'll be interesting to see how they handle that.

Of course he'll have a larger part.

That's one thing that I loved about the LOTR script: whenever possible, it sought to make the fantastic more familiar, by expanding the emotional range of the thing. I'm not saying I agreed with all decisions, but one thing they did absolutely right: the emotional truth of the story counted most. And so we got expanded parts for bit roles (Gamling, etc) and "bit parts" invented to flesh out the story and make it more "real." This was most evident in TTT--I always *loved* the idea of the village woman and her two kids, thrown in as a way of bringing the plight of the average Rohander to life, so we could see just what was at stake for the ordinary citizens of ME.
Of COURSE we will see a much expanded part for Bard; aside from the fact that theway he is set up in the book would look ludicrous on film, (sorry, but it's true), even if he had a big role in the book, Fran esp would find a way to expand on it. I don't know if it would be advisable to go so far as to give him a family we meet briefly, etc, but there can be some sort of story or backstory around him.

The two things I'm looking forward to most are the depictions of the Mirkwood Kingdom and LakeTown. In the case of the Mirkwood Elves, this has puzzled me for a long time: how do you portray the Elves who were "more dangerous and less wise" than the other Elven folk, the "primitaves" of the Elven world, and yet have them still convey the majesty of Elves? Well, maybe not even that, for they never saw the light of the Trees. Someone said that it would be foolish to drop Legolas inot any such scenes, or in Film 2, since clearly he and Aragorn only met at the Council; yet Jackson makes it clear in his version that they *had( met (their eyes, body language, and words at the Council confirm that. I always got the impression that in PJ's bversion, Thranduil had sent Legolas, who must have been a hothead, to journey with Thorongil, (knowing who he was of course), so that "Estel" could teach him a but about how to get on with Men)...

Beautiful!

This is GREAT news. Sloan first said MGM would do The Hobbit with Jackson on September 16, 2006 (I will elaborate further in my TORniversary mathom coming this September to an Off-Topic Forum near you! Wink). Two years later, here we are.

I guess patience does pay off. I can't wait to see this. I cannot wait to see the first sketch, the first production photo... will this be the ultimate consecration for Guillermo del Toro? Will it be a multiple Oscar winner? Will it win the fans' hearts? What fans? Pro-Peter, anti-Peter, purists, revisionists, del Toro fans, die-hard Tolkiendilis or everyone alike?

This is a time of many questions, of mystery, of hope...

One request to all of you though! Let us not become the Star Wars community... I know we all have a particular view of what this movie should be like in our heads, but let's not compare it to that ideal personal conception, but let the movie stand on its own, and judge it as such.

The Journey There has just begun. One day, on January 2013 (hopefully! If the Maya were wrong Wink), we'll be Back Again, and hopefully planning an Oscar party and waiting for a couple of Extended Editions and Full Scores.

Here's to Del Toro becoming the Irvin Kershner of Middle Earth!

And just think...

Filming to begin (hopefully) little more than a year from now. Del Toro said he'd maybe have Bilbo or major casting news as a Christmas present...so now that scripting has begun, it''s all dotted and T'd, casting will soon be beginning as well! We may not have so long to wait for major news! (*crosses fingers, toes and every part crossable, and some that arent....PLEASE let Doug get Thranduil....he could do it..he's got the looks, both bodily and facial-wise, he has the gravitas and he could do the voice of an Elf. too..I used to be doubtful of this, but HB2 changed my mind in a big way).

I'd say, Del Toro had better work on ways to keep us satisfied newswise, or our trusty spies will swing back into action!

BEsides Mirkwood, I LOVE the idea that we going to be seeing a whole different part of ME, and Laketown, the first truly urban environment. In Edoras and MInas Tirith, we only hung out in the throne rooms, and never got any extended scenes with the people in the streets. We never slowed down long enough to savor an urban environment. I hope we will do this. Also, the Laketowners are rleated to the people of Rohan, aren;t they, so I can;t wait to hear Shore's Laketown theme! Will we hear the hardanger fiddle playing something much more muted and different?

Alos, I love the whole stroy arc of THorin just striding in and claiming his birthright in Laketown, and the people believe it and how that whole thing builds. It's the kind of stirring thing both Del Toro and Jackson could handle well, though Del Toro will make it more doubtful thing....or more dubious anyway.

So I'm...

...sitting in the office and grinning like a mad person Blush I can well imagine PJ, Fran, Philippa, and GDT sitting in Bag End and sharing their dreams of Middle-earth... it is a little mind boggling to think of.

But this bit of the news caught my eye...
With shooting scheduled to begin in Fall 2009 in New Zealand, the quartet better get busy!

What? I thought shooting was supposed to begin in 2010. I'm not sure how official the Fall 2009 timeline is, but if it is, I'm gonna be spinning in my office chair heedlessly, since that could mean more pre-production news sooner Tongue And GDt did say that we'd know who Bilbo was this Christmas didn't he? There's still a chance it could be the good ol' Sir Ian Holm (though I wouldn't be unhappy, at all, if it was Martin Freeman).

In Reply To

Does that mean New Zealand's 'fall' (autumn) or the Northern Hemisphere Fall? 'Cause they're six months apart!

Mention a flipping month, EW!

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Was wondering that myself

but thinking about it - the NZ fall 2009, being not much more than half a year away, might be a bit early to begin shooting and a December 2011 release for the first movie seems too long in that case, too. So I think they're talking about October or so.

Me too, but I was thinking...

.. they'd start in, say, March or April 2009.

It has been a while since I picked up The Hobbit, so I am not sure in what time of the year Bilbo started his journey, but I don't think the weather was all that splendid. Anyone remember? Might make sense to start filming when the weather is a bit gloomy in New Zealand if it was gloomy in the books as well.

Ahh... I did NOT think of that

Frown I assumed "Fall" to be sometime around August or September but that would be completely out of reckoning. So I assume Fall would mean the Fall of 2010, which is the year PJ and GDT said filming would start anyway (I think that was announced in the live chat).

Oh well, to think I was getting excited and all that Evil

The weather was indeedy all that splendid ;)

Bilbo and company set out sometime in the month of May (or a little before it).

Roast Mutton (Ch.2) says "That's how they all came to start, jogging off from the inn one fine morning just before May" and "Mostly it had been as good as May can be, even in merry tales" and "Bilbo was sadly reflecting that adventures were not all pony-rides in May sunshine".

But then Flies and Spiders (Ch.8) says "For he [Balin] had forgotten everything that had happened since they started their journey that May morning long ago.".

Looks like Bilbo too was a little out of his reckoning (or maybe, by extension, Tolkien) Wink

Anyway, summer is perfect to show the Shire in a more "golden time". Then as the narrative gets grimmer, the weather should probably get more gloomy as well, seeing as they reach the Desolation of Smaug sometime in autumn and on the brink of winter.

They wont shoot everything in sequence ...

but as the climate and environmnet change they might take advantage of that -
especially as the Shire and the Hobbit gardens need to have a good Spring (Im assuming) for the flowers to be out and the grass lush and green. Too far into Summer and they might loose that healthy look to the landscape.
I think Bilbo and Company were always worrying about winter coming on ...

If they do start early, they'll manage two rounds of seasons ...

Out of sequence shooting

Yes, I agree... that's a good way to complete filming in one calendar year (assuming 2010) and then take advantage of the following year for post-production.

Also, I just realized that Film 2 is being shot simultaneously and the seasons of whatever events they choose to show in that film should also reflect what's there in the books. Hmmm... someting quite bewildering as far as Film 2 goes. I simply can't wait for some official news. Any news.

*gasp* That's right!

If their source was GdT and he was still in Los Angeles, it's probably October-December(ish) of 09. I'd think it would take them more than 6-7 months (starting now) to write 2 screenplays (collaboratively); hire the cast; build any sets and/or props to get the film ready for production.

There shouldn't be the huge location search to do that they suffered through for LotR. I'm sure they've got a good idea of what they need from scouting the lands then not to mention re-using some (i.e. Rivendell/Hobbiton/Weathertop)

That's the best news I've heard so far...

At least if Peter and Fran are involved in the process, they and GDT will get a feel for what each one's vision for the movie is and it will become apparent rather quickly whether they're on the same page. If the writing process goes smoothly, then I'll be able to put aside whatever reservations I may still have of GDT directing this thing and be able to enjoy the subsequent months of spy reports and feedback from the trio.

According to the BBC website

The Hobbit is going to be split into two movies:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/...tainment/7572749.stm

Now, that article's not entirely accurate is it!

I'm so glad things are getting underway. And I'm equally as glad that I get to find out what's really going on, right here on ToRN, rather than reading various versions on misinformed news sites!

What is the BBC coming to?

Not just the misleading bit about The Hobbit being split into two parts, but also the idea that PJ and GDT were searching for a "suitable scribe" before deciding to write the screenplay themselves. Surely there was never any question of anyone else writing the script?

And to cap it all, they spelled 'reins' wrong:

He had already handed over the director's reigns to Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro.

I'm appalled! Tongue

...and the sails were drawn up, and the wind blew,
and slowly the ship slipped away down the long grey firth;
and the light of the glass of Galadriel that Frodo bore
glimmered and was lost.

Question from the Netherlands

Hello there,


I just decided to register as a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy. I check this site 4 or 5 times a day. I have got a question for you guys. Why is everybody so happy about the news of Jackson, Walsh etc. I thought they had already signed in december 2007. To bad I cant understand everything in English so maybe I misunderstoud the anouncement of last december of Peter Jackson producing te Hobbit.

I hope that somebody can explain me why this news is exiting.

Thanks in advance, and sorry if the English is not quit correct....

Kind regards,

There are a fair few discussion board members here for whom English is a second language, so I hope you feel at home on TORN. :)

The delight isn't so much about confirmation that PJ and the rest are joining del Toro, but because the four have them have started writing at last! It makes The Hobbit films just that little bit closer to completion.

The Hobbit Script

I would like to put forward a suggestion that might provide a guide for adapting the Hobbit to film.
Back in the 1970's an audio play was released on a 4 LP box set. Nicol Williamson was the narrator and did a wonderful job. The editing of the story was superb. It was also approved by The Professor himself. I often wondered why it is not available (Or if it is, where is it?) I have the box set and listen to it on a copy I made to save the original.

Don't worry about your English, it is fine. Though that was how I felt when I signed up, too - I'm German *waves over the border*

As for your question, you're right that the announcement has been made months ago. But since then, not much has been happening, at least nothing obvious, and so we're just excited that things *finally* are moving. Now that scripting has begun, we can expect more news - that in itself is exciting enough Smile

Pre-production

I am happy that my English is not TO badWink. By the way, your English isn't bad alsoTongue. I now know why everybody is so happy. Indeed there wasn't any news about the Hobbit since Del Toro took the helmet 4 months ago.

Does scipting mean pre-production has officially started? I guess that between now and fall 2009 the actors of the Hobbit will be reveald?

Hopefully earlier

GDT (who is posting here on occasion) promised some news for Christmas, so I think a few casting news will be out not too far into the future. Maybe he'll finally announce who's playing Bilbo, so we won't have threads on the topic so often Wink Anyway, Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Andy Serkis as Gollum are already more or less confirmed, though not officially announced (well, they can't announce actors without script and before all papers are signed, after all)

Don't know any official definition, but IMO scripting counts as pre-production Smile And then Weta can go to work, too, I guess SmileSmile

I see some Oscars

No doubt with the talent working on this film, it will steal a barrel full of Oscars.

This is awesome because not only are we getting highest quality screen writers, that are all obsessed and empassioned with this tale, Del Toro and Jackson writing side by side, means they will be discussing/sharing every little detail on the production and directing aspects as well, and will be on the same page, and between the two collaborating, will come up with a movie like none other. Especially for The Hobbit, though it will be great to see what they do with the 2nd movie as well.
