personally i think he sold them as he wanted the cash but never thought they would get made [In reply to] Can't Post

I just honestly dont think they would be given a budget big enough to make them good and i would hate for the lotr to be great, hobbit to (hopefully) be great and then have some mediocre silmarillion based film.

they certainly are not going to be made any time Christopher Tolkien is alive but he is a very old man, it will be up to his family and the estate to do as they please until the copyright is up in 50 years after he passes away.

If they had to be done i would prefer them to be done in another country with another director - a fresh start. I do think new zealand is so tied to middle earth now, doing something like that could be hard.

I think in 50 years when the copyright presumably will run out unless they can extend it like disney would be a good time to make them - more technology and probably a totally different take on the work than what there would be now.

    Personally, I don't think you can make a trilogy without filming the entire book DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Nov 15 2012, 10:46am
