Semi O.T. pre-emptive post. Can't Post

In a few days there will be a BIG announcement (big for me, at least) that is not-Hobbit related. BEFORE anyone starts wondering the usual "how does he have time?, Is this detracting form The Hobbit?" etc It is a project that started over 2 years ago, before The Hobbit and will render fruits in the mid-term, not intruding on my Hobbit duties. Rest assured.

The key letter is "D"

Well then, a pre-emptive congratulations. [In reply to] Can't Post

For whatever news is imminent.

And thanks for the heads-up!

We're discussing The Silmarillion in the Reading Room, Aug. 9 - Mar 7. Please join the conversation!

This week: "Of the Coming of the Elves" and "Of Thingol and Melian".

Look forward to hear the big "D" news.

Congrats on Deadman, GDT! [In reply to] Can't Post

At least, I presume that's what the good news is about. Wink

It sounds like a fabulous project! It gives us something to look forward to post-Hobbit. CoolSmile

"big D" once or twice but, alas.

Josh Wigler at MTV Movie Blog asks "...have we seen the last of 'Hellboy'"? Strange, they didn't mention current commitments.

Consider that nonsense preempted.

For "thoughtful", of you. GDT, it was so amazingly nice of you to give us a heads up. Thank you kindly & hope the new project is a successful and enjoyable one!

Well, [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it is Deadman, Del Toro producing and there was talk that Arcel (from Denmark) is directing it. But that is maybe dated.. Arcel also wrote the script for Mænd der hader kvinder, a great film.
With Del Toro 'only' producing it, there will probably be no interference with The Hobbit. About midterm - Is there such thing when making The Hobbit?

Really looking forward to Deadman, with or without Del Toro onboard.. (But I prefer Del Toro on board, he did great things to Hellboy) It was the only comicbook that I liked as a kid. It had that great feel and atmospere. And the look of him.. a superhero that isn't a superhero. And with the excistence of the great being (was it Hara Kushna? Rama Kushna) of the universe it has some lovecraftian background, although it is a comic book. Well I'm rambling..

Conclusion - I'm looking forward to it.

'D'ancing with the Stars? [In reply to] Can't Post

GDT's head knew he should say 'no' to the invitation, but his feet said 'yes!yes!yes!'

don't panic folks, its all going to be done with motion capture via satellite from WETA studios in New Zealand. he's a multi-tasker

You're making me think. You should know by now that that's not a good idea. [In reply to] Can't Post

Perhaps this isn't up to Weta's exacting standards, but I hope it's good for a laugh. Wink

How many of you are there, anyway? [In reply to] Can't Post

Just kidding, of course. Congratulations in advance on what I'm sure will be another interesting project. You do keep yourself busy, don't you?

P.S. With someone else, I would think 'the key letter is "D"' means "D" for dollars, but I don't think that is the case for you. And yes, I mean that as a compliment. Smile

Probably either Drood or Deadman [In reply to] Can't Post

too funny, Carrioncrow [In reply to] Can't Post

I might actually watch 'D'ancing with the Stars if GDT were doing performance capture via WETA. Each week it could be a different creature, or better yet, they could cg Astaire and Kelly in there. Really show those other contestants a thing or two. Sly

or NOT!

GDT, congrats on having big news to share, that's always fun.

Peace, Love and Rock & Roll,
