Speculation: Official Announcement for The Hobbit in September? Can't Post

So, I'm going to take a shot and say it: The Hobbit might be announced this September.

No, I'm sorry, I do not have any insider information, and I am just saying it, out of some conclusions.

First of all, why September? Well, two things: all the buzz for the movie started September 10, 2006 when Harry Sloan, MGM's CEO announced they would make The Hobbit, as announced by comingsoon.net and originally, Variety . Secondly, The Hobbit turns 70 on September 21, don't tell me it wouldn't be a good thing for Jackson and ths studios to announce the project exactly at the 70th anniversary? Above all it sounds like a smart marketing move, given the emotional part...

Kristin Thompson from the Frodo Franchise says in her blog:
Quote:

The same story, however, added this snippet of news: “By a happy coincidence, Sir Ian is currently in New Zealand performing in King Lear and plans to dine with New Line’s bosses shortly when he will make it clear how keen he is to play Gandalf in the new film.” If indeed McKellen plans to do so, it may hint that the negotiations between New Line and Jackson are going well.

When might that meal occur? The Auckland run of the plays ended on August 25, and the Royal Shakespeare will be presenting them at the Brooklyn Academy of Music from September 6 to 30. After a stop at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, the RSC will be in Los Angeles for performances from October 19 to 28. Given that New Line has offices in both New York and Los Angeles, that dinner could take place in either city.


Now, after seeing how Jackson and Shaye are apparently making up, could we be heading to a much expected and highly publicized announcment (hopefully sans Raimi)? Or will we be left to continue speculating and waiting?

I don't know, but September does sound like a plausible and interesting moment to do it.

Let it be heard! We want Jackson for The Hobbit!
