Something is Coming.. Can't Post

December 8th, 2009

I received a mysterious email followed up by a phone call in the last few days. I don't know much, all I know is that 'Something is coming' on December 8th, 2009. And that we should be watching this space and www.lordoftherings.net stay tuned for more!

What could it be? Speculate on our boards!

BLUE RAY [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm guessing that it's going to be news about BLUE RAY versions of the extended dvd's.

Hopefully, not Lovely Bones related [In reply to] Can't Post

December 8 is close to that movie relaease, and in all due respect, what people really want is a major Hobbit news, not Bones promo push. I`m just sayin`. It probably is Hobbit-related (end of the year sounds like a reasonable time for a major casting news since production starts in March) but I don`t want to be disappointed.

Blue ray would also be disappointing. Anything non-Hobbit casting.

An official green light for the Hobbit? [In reply to] Can't Post

Followed immediately or in short order by some casting news, I'm thinking.

LB is not Warner Brothers [In reply to] Can't Post

And the words 'phone call' lead to WarnerBrothers.

Also, why would we be told to watch lordoftherings.net to find news about Lovely Bones?

I second L. Ron's guess [In reply to] Can't Post

If they planning to start filming in March, then I would think they'd need to make things "official" asap.

A greenlight and some casting announcements would be a nice birthday present [In reply to] Can't Post

Okay, so my birthday is the 4th of December and not the 8th. But if my grandmother can't keep it straight, how can I expect the movie studios to? Cool

Any news would be welcome, right about now. Even just the greenlight announcement. Some crew announcements would be welcome, as well. *cough*CostumeDesigner*cough*

Bilbo casting confirmation. Tongue

As with everything else, it's the thought that counts.

Hmm, when I clicked on the link to the official site of Lord of the Rings, [In reply to] Can't Post

I noticed there was a big gap on the left of "LOTR". Maybe to be filled with the words "The Hobbit"?

Bilbo [In reply to] Can't Post

I am so very worried about who is cast as Bilbo! One thing i loved about LOTR's is how most of the actors were unknowns, to me at least. I would jump off a bridge if they cast David Tennant as Bilbo Crazy

Why isn't this in the Hobbit forum? [In reply to] Can't Post

Does this portend that it isn't Hobbit-related news?

Yes, I think that'll be it... [In reply to] Can't Post

Not sure that a bluray announcement would warrant so much fanfare. At any rate, I'll be disappointed if that's all it is! I think it'll be 'green light/shooting schedule' stuff. Hurrah! Smile

well, lordoftherings.net is a dead site [In reply to] Can't Post

so I guess that major Hobbit news would revive it as the Hobbit site or something. Pointless to make an announcement there since everyone gets Hobbit news from here. So, yeah, when I think of it, it has to be Hobbit-related. The site will probably get some make-over accordingly.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

As much as I'm awaiting the Blu-ray of LotR EE... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm really hoping against hope it IS the greenlight and the casting announcements. The suspense is driving me to drink. Um... I hear they're serving Kahlua and Cream in the fiesta thread....

I suspect [In reply to] Can't Post

that until they know more, the PTB don't want to get anyone's hopes up. Putting this in The Hobbit board might make people believe that TORn knows more than they're telling. After all, while TH is the most logical announcement to be announced, there's still a chance that this is something else that's coming.

LordoftheRings.net alive and active. It's all Middle-earth, and it speaks of The Hobbit being part of the larger picture, even though it is definitely a separate work.
