Now there's a nick that brings back great memories of your reports from the LOTR set. Fancy another trip downunder before too long?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

It should be observed that since Mr. Del Toro will be spending the next 4 yrs of his life in NZ, he should have an interesting accent after a while:)

You've been missed - glad to see you around again.

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.
`Are these magic cloaks?' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.

in about 3 years! Laugh Seriously, the ink isn't even dry on the first of many agreements, and GDT has other projects he hasn't even finished yet.

OH HAPPY FRABJOUS DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Cool Dear Guillermo,

WOOHOO!!! HeartHeartHeartHeartHeart

You are a prince among directors, a wizzard of cinematic art, a fan's dream come true.

As a huge admirer of your films (ever since Cronos), I was thrilled when your name was first floated as director.

Back in 2007, when PJ made the announcement that he would be The Hobbit's executive producer, I had fantasized that you or fellow amigo Alphonso Cuaron might be at the helm. But I figured that's all it was, a dream. With the acclaim for Pan, plus knowing you had the new Hellboy coming out, not to mention the fact that you were being courted for HP, I wondered if you'd even be interested in such a long term committment. Moreover, given the debacle of The Golden Compass, I didn't think I could stand to see first rate fantasy material in the hands of a second rate director any time soon again. So many disappointments when big studios are involved, yet I allowed myself to hope.

When it appreared you were interested, I could hardly contain my joy. Two of my favorite filmmakers, working together, to bring a cherished book to the screen. Doubters be damned! Indeed I spent more than a few minutes in this forum encouraging everyone who hadn't already done so to go out immediately and rent The Devil's Backbone and Pan. Your fans here, as you likely already know, did quite a bit of serious hand holding at TORN!

I know from past experience that no director is more respectful of or generous to the fan community than yourself. I'm sure you already know that you won't find a more opinionated, enthusiastic, or dedicated group than Tolkien fans. I know that you will weather this project with grace and charm, and I have every confidence that your films will be extraordinary. I can't wait to see the unique personal vision you'll bring to The Hobbit movies. I am content at last.

How well I remember the anticipation and tension as we waited for casting and production news from PJ's LOTR - has it really been almost ten years? Such sweet agony it was. Now we get to take the journey AGAIN - this is even better than a month of second breakfasts!

This middle aged lady is doing a happy dance, wishing you well on your journey, knowing that something truly special awaits at the end.

HAPPY DAY HAPPY DAY HAPPY DAY HAPPY DAY HAPPY DAY HAPPY DAY

A valid question, yes [In reply to] Can't Post

And I didn't mean to 'snuff' it. My point was, there are very VERY few questions about The Hobbit that are valid today. Pre-production won't even start for months. Today, this is a thread for celebration. Let's just let the man and the community celebrate before we start pelting him with questions he, or anyone else won't be able to answer for some time to come. Chances are the answer is going to change at least 10 times in the next few years anyway. Laugh

I do welcome you to the community, jimdorey! Smile
