From what I've read

From what I've read [In reply to] Can't Post

(and I'm no expert on this stuff), if New Line decides to make The Hobbit they will have to do it quickly, before their rights expire. And this would probably mean a quick script, possibly written by in-house scriptwriters. They would have to rely on the brand to sell the movie, and hope for the best. That's how I understand it anyway. They could probably make a nice pile of cash doing it this way (sequels/prequels of "franchise" movies seem to be able to make millions regardless of quality), but it seems like a terrible waste of such a valuable resource.

...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.
