Poll: After LOTR and Hobbit, do you expect to see more Tolkien in cinema ?
no, nothing else Tolkien wrote is tight enough as a story
Children of Hurin
a high budget TV series based on the Silmarillion
it's more likely someone else will try LOTR and Hobbit
I don't care, it's all about the books anyway

Yes! But it won't be a faithful to the source material as PJ's work. [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, it will be adapted more. It will be loose and much will be added and taken away and embellished, just a Tolkien always wanted; a sort of mythology tapestry. But really The Hobbit and the LOTR only serve as, sort of, parts 5 & 6 out of what is a seven part story. The bigger story has only been hinted at in the films to date. The overall story of the Middle Earth is one of a loss of innocence. Evil seeks to destroy and good wins over it, sort of. Even after good 'wins' things are still not the same. Consider Galadrial's voice over at the beginning of the LOTR movies, "the world has changed ... much that once was is lost, and none now live who remember it." Defeating evil comes at a cost. Nothing ever goes back to the way it once was entirely. That is the story of Middle Earth; a pure, young earth slowing losing its purity, the elves leaving, all the magic in the world dying out, and men being the only remaining race in a stark and dull world. Tolkien always said that his mythology was about death, its the death of a world. Middle Earth is really a multi-generational epic tragedy, and it will probably end up somewhere between 7 and 9 films before the whole tale has been told. I only hope that people with a true passion for Tolkien, like PJ, continue this grand and immense work, always seeking to create something beautiful and true to Tolkien's vision. Because if the franchise becomes some hollywood machine of money makers and greedy executives, then everything that Tolkien's books stand for will be contradicted in a sick and perverse irony.
