'What Say You' ~ The Hobbit Movie ~ Reports, Rumours & Rumblings ~ Howard Shore to score the Hobbit ~ Jan 08 Can't Post

This is just too good a rumbling not to post about ... Smile

Earl and Magpie, on a thread in the Main section page have hinted that Douglas Adams' blog contains some very strong pointers to the possibility of Howard composing the score for the Hobbit Movie ... and I cant imagine that if that is true, he not doing both Movies ....

I hope it is OK to post over Magpies quote .. and give Douglas' site address here as well, so you can have a look ...

So the question for comment is

Do you think this rumbling has some credibility?
Would your choice of composer be Howard Shore to do both movies?
If not Howard Shore, who would be your choice?

If you choose Howard Shore as the composer - Do you think some of the theme music from LOTR will re-appear in the Hobbit and the second movie?
(Im not calling it a Bridge Movie - as that title really ticks me off!! grrrr!!)

Earls thread:

Over at the Ongoing discussion at his blog, Doug was asked:

Any comments on De Toro and the effect on the composer choice?

To which he replied (in classic Doug fashion Wink):

I was first passed word of this about a month ago.

Shore is a huge Del Toro fan, and Del Toro is a huge Shore fan. It is a good time to be a Tolkien fan.






Magpies post:

just found his entry on his main page which just says in large gold type,


Quote
A long time ago, in an underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived...


and then as a comment he just added a smile.

I had to google the phrase to figure out what it meant. Although I knew it was a hint that developments were in the works I wasn't entirely sure it referred to the Hobbit until I got my google results.

I came here immediately to post and found you've been awake longer. :-)

I agree with you that Doug would not be posting something like this without real news going on behind the scenes.





So 'What Say You' ...
Smile


The Shire was never the same after
Barbra Cartland moved into Bagshot Row.


Tolkien was a Capricorn!
The Hobbit!!
Its a Happening Thing!!

Sauruman: "Do know how the fan girls/boys first came into being? ... they were Tolkien scholars once ... Taken by the Dark Director, tempted to hold moots & dress up like Hobbits, Elves, Dwarves and Wizards ... A ruined & terrible form of life, not to mentions bad grades ... and now perfected at TORN ...
Whom do you serve!"
