laughs out loud with delight! [In reply to] Can't Post

"There's more than hope" he says with a smile.

lovely, lovely...

interestingly, I just posted on a soundtrack forum in a discussion of the CR-ROTK soundtrack. We were musing about the pieces we want to hear and I said,

That music when Sam comes home at the end and the green door closes with "The End" - which I always read as: 'go home, people... it's over. It's all over.' and I sit slightly stunned refusing to admit it's over...
I want that music... (although I do have it pulled from the movie).

When I said, "It's all over" I meant, *ALL*. It was pretty much over.

And then I come here and open up this post first and see that Entertainment Weekly cover and think "hmm... maybe I should start collecting magazines like this in anticipation that this might be the start of it all" and then he says, "There's more than hope" with a smile.

Yesss!

I am trying to be realistic and not get too excited until I hear "Yes, the script is done and this is when we start filming", but wow - it's getting harder to do that will all these little 'news bits' coming out weekly. Woohoo!

hmmmm [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's bare in mind that this quote is taken completely out of context. We have no idea what was said before or after "there's more than a hope." He might have been talking about the hope that his wife made him a PB&J at home.

Still... It is rather exciting :) I want Peter at the Helm. None of this producing crap.

And here I thought you were talking about me with that headline! I mean, after all, Mr. Lynne and I do spell "Lynne" the same way. Wink Gave me a bit of a shock when I open TOR.n just now. hehe

Good news, of course. And not totally unexpected, but still, I breathed a little sigh of relief.

Sadly, I agree with you.

I really want to see these projects made.

But thrown together as a money grab would be far worse than never being made at all.

No wonder all writers want to direct: one still has to put up with a load of nonsense, but even if wearing two hats (writer and director), there is one under which one is not called a thief and then raped - David Mamet

Script? [In reply to] Can't Post

Nobody has even so much thought of a script.

Unless Fran/Peter/Phillipa have already written broad outlines or a treatment of some kind or unless New Line secretly had somebody get started on one (unlikely because then the director might start from scratch for more $$$) there is no such thing as a script.

Who needs a script? We have a marketing strategy!

Theres got to be a draft script lying around somewhere ... :D [In reply to] Can't Post

I think caution is a great option here - Im not sure how it all goes, but with the legal dealings about and not cleared up yet, I think its difficult to say whats happening ... no need to whip out a script and then see that impacts on the legals ... though Ive not heard that a script is off limits ... that doesnt stop Phillipa and Fran though does it?

No script? No problem!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Jack Lewis wrote the scripts for "Billy the Kid Versus Dracula" (1966) and its sequel "Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter" (also 1965) in less than two weeks! And veteran Hollywood director (over 350 movies) William "One Shot" Beaudine was able to film each one in eight days. (Slow for him. His record for shooting a film was two days.)

New Line, the studio that gave us "Freddy Versus Jason" (2003), should have absolutely no problem at all!!

BTW, Beaudine's most famous quote was "You mean someone out there is actually waiting to see this?"

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

George Lucas was just the Executive Producer (not writer or director) of The Empire Strikes Back and it's generally considered the best of the series.

Dangling carrots !! [In reply to] Can't Post

*not a bad name for a band actually Laugh*

I would like to see New Line claim it fully ... make an announcement instead of Dangling Carrots and being so precious about the Hobbit.
Its like owing a rare jewel which they keep in the safe, never wear it, never showcase it, as if its too 'precious' to bring out and show off in case something happens to it! They covert it - and just tell you about it without letting anyone see it ... what a waste, what a shame.
*rant over*

Nothng new on the news front that we havent heard ... thought this has been said and winked about with drink in hand ... is that what makes it so much more appetising as substantial news ... maybe?

Something is in the works, but its not tim for a celebration yet.

I contacted a National Radio show Movie Proram this morning asking them to start following the Hobbit Jackson New Line Story and reporting on it occassionally .... I hope they do!!

I don't see why not... [In reply to] Can't Post

They would have had time after King Kong - it shouldn't've taken three years just to adapt The Lovely Bones...

Anyone can adapt any work they want to into a script. They only need the rights to the original work to produce it as a play or a movie or a video game or whatever. I'd like to think that Fran and Phillipa have Hobbit script(s) mostly done. After all, Peter's already said there ought to be two movies, with part of the second covering "the gap" between the end of The Hobbit and the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring. If they hadn't already been toying with adapting the Hobbit, how would they have known they had enough material for two movies?
