No third "Hobbit" film .....? Can't Post

As reported in the link below, apparently there are rumours going round ComicCon of a third "Hobbit" film (possibly TABA split in two).

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118056497


Quote

Hours into Comic-Con, one rumor kept circulating around San Diego: that Peter Jackson was going to announce a third "Hobbit" film during Warner Bros.' Saturday panel for the fantasy pics.


For those at ComicCon, has this rumour actually been going round?

Who even spread the rumour? Surely the whole point of Old Bilbo & Frodo (and to some extent Galadriel and Saruman) is to link the 5 films together.

Maybe the rumours are based on that comment Jackson made [In reply to] Can't Post

About asking the studio about filming additional material next year.

Could've been... [In reply to] Can't Post

I suppose that could have been easily twisted into a rumour on a "third film".

Unless he is actually filming scenes to put in a special edition of LOTR.

Now I see how addictive it is to spread a rumor!Cool

I know the storyline of the third movie... [In reply to] Can't Post

Its narrative runs alongside The Hobbit and LotR and stars Peter Jackson as the main character. The story attempts to better link The Hobbit and the LotR movies with each other, by revealing that all of Peter Jackson's cameos are the same character.

It follows the story of an innocent Laketown man who gets swept off to Bree and later finds himself battling for Rohan before eventually becoming a pirate where his story meets a tragic end.

Maybe the big twist of the second film [In reply to] Can't Post

is that the moth is really PJ in disguise (using Radagast's magic), delivering deus ex machina on demand!

Also I though that scene 88 involved an enormous amount of running, not dancing....

I believe [In reply to] Can't Post

If the two Hobbit films are wildly successful at the Box Office, and critically, that Warner Brother's will push for a third bridge film.

if "An Unexpected Journey" does well at the box office.... [In reply to] Can't Post

there's no telling what the studios may decide to do.

It might be cool if they threw in deleted or extra scenes onto the DVD for "There and Back Again" as stand-alone clips (i.e. - not part of the movie itself).

It would even be interesting to see deleted scene's from "Return of the King" such as Eowyn and Faramir's wedding.

This sort of thing may work better as a stand-alone retrospective DVD of extra footage from the combined Hobbit and LOTR films. Maybe title it "The Book of Years," and organize the scenes as clips from the appendices.

I'm non too thrilled about the idea of two hobbit films - [In reply to] Can't Post

- even one would be one too many in my opinion. So I was glad to see from the article on the front page that the rumours were just that; rumours.

Just out of interest, geordie [In reply to] Can't Post

...did you feel the same way about the cartoon versions - the Ralph Bakshi Lord of the Rings (some of it) and the Rankin Bass Hobbit? Is it the whole idea of adapting Tolkien's work for the screen that you don't like, or just the way Peter Jackson adapted Lord of the Rings? (His adaptation of The Hobbit you surely can't pass a final judgement on since no one really knows what it is yet. I appreciate that there are probably aspects of what we already do know of it that you aren't keen on.)

I don't think so - [In reply to] Can't Post

- the banner at the top of the forums reads 'For discussion of all things Tolkien'. I've been interested in all things Tolkien for over thirty years now - so I reckon I'm in the right place.
