Wow this is awesome news! The LA Times has had some pretty good scoops I think so it is much more likely to be true!
This calls for a dusting off of the LotR discs methinks Smile And I've got a couple of hours to keep refreshing my page Wink
I just don't know what else to say, except bring it on!!!!! Laugh
This calls for a race to the bar at the Prancing Pony... now where's my 'Staff ' t-shirt.... Wink

It gave me reason to brave the Hobbit Movie forum [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been really busy for the past couple weeks, and so haven't been on the forums much. I'd been watching the "new post" count on TH forum build up. It was past 1000 today, which made a bit worried about opening it, since I knew it'd take forever to get through.

It's possible that Warners have already made that decision [In reply to] Can't Post

Either to film in New Zealand or elsewhere. Just because they haven't announced it just yet doesn't mean they don't know where they'll be filming.

Close the door, put out the light.
You know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know?
The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through.

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.

Not quite officially official [In reply to] Can't Post

But it's looking very good. A number of highly reliable sources have independently claimed that The Hobbit has been greenlit.

true too [In reply to] Can't Post

but somehow I doubt they would decide on a filming location that fast

and I don't find it likely that they'll abandon the Hobbiton set

They'll definitely use the NZ Hobbiton set [In reply to] Can't Post

no matter which country they shoot the rest of the film in. Philippa Boyens said as much in a recent interview.

From what I understand reading todays articles.... [In reply to] Can't Post

The greenlight has been given for the production to go ahead in NZ pending the resolution of the actors dispute.

If the dispute is not resolved then the production will be delayed longer and will be re-budgeted which would then require another green light.

It's not the announcement, it's the timing [In reply to] Can't Post

The rumors we're hearing right now say that filming will start in February. That indicates NZ is the site of the filming since a new location would require more ramp-up time.

In the words of Anikan from Phantom Menace - Yippee! ... the only thing is [In reply to] Can't Post

"...production will begin in February in New Zealand..."

This might not be a good sign for having Martin Freeman play Bilbo? What about starting in January? Or could this be that they worked out the schedule where he would start working on Sherlock early Jan, and then start The Hobbit later and go back and forth...maybe BBC was flexible, wanted to accomodate Freeman and Jackson (knowing how big a role this is), and maybe they worked out a shooting schedule having Freeman going back and forth throughout 2011?

while they wait, they can just film all the bits about the dwarves and Gandalf where Bilbo is down and away riddling with Gollum.

I like this start date of February... [In reply to] Can't Post

IIRC, Martin Freeman's conflicts with his BBC commitments are November/December - so with luck, a Feb start date means he can be Bilbo!

Feeling good about this - might just crack open some bubbly this evening. You know, to celebrate - that'll be my excuse today... Tongue
