Sloan: PJ and Walsh knew every moment, every scene... Can't Post

Kristin Thompson reports that Variety (blogs) report a press conference by Harry Sloan, President of MGM, and saviour of these movies:

Sloan was asked who the writers for the Hobbit project will be. He wouldn’t answer but added, “but you can probably guess.”


On "The Hobbit":
Sloan had a four-hour dinner with Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, where they laid out their vision for the dual-film prequel. "They knew every scene, every moment. We knew we had to do it with them."

Kristin adds:


From Sloan’s latest remarks, we can “guess” that Peter and Fran will be directly involved in the writing and that they have the basic outline of the entire thing in mind already.

Also, the story seems to confirm release dates for 2011 and 2012, which has been constant for several months now, and not 2010 and 2011 as was initially announced.


Sights are also set on "The Hobbit," a two-film prequel to "The Lord of the Rings" set for Christmas 2011 and 2012.

Funny thing is that it is being referred to again as a two-film prequel.

Here's to Del Toro becoming the Irvin Kershner of Middle Earth!
