YahooNews on Hobbit: wrong, or Appendix movie gone? Can't Post

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080425/ap_en_mo/film_hobbit_del_toro

Guillermo del Toro is directing "The Hobbit" and its sequel, New Line Cinema announced Thursday. The 43-year-old filmmaker will move to New Zealand for four years to make the films back-to-back with executive producer Peter Jackson.

"Please note that this version DELETES INCORRECT reference to second movie spanning time between "Hobbit" and "Rings"; New Line now says movies are based on book only."

***********

Um, what the heck? They've said CONSTANTLY: "The first movie is based on the book "The Hobbit", and the second will be a "bridge movie" based on the Appendix which will be about the backstories Tolkien wrote for what's happening in the intervening years.

Why would YahooNews actually make a RETRACTION like this? Can someone (i.e. higher ups on TORN) confirm or deny this or e-mail YahooNews if they're morons?

"Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name, but what's puzzling you, is the nature of my game"

Formerly known on TORN as "Draug the Unspeakably Violent"
