Potentially more Middle-earth.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree there's nothing wrong with fans wanting the Hobbit to be a big financial success.

Surely though this is the end of Middle Earth movies whether the Hobbit does well or not? I can't see any reason for the Tolkien Estate to change their minds regarding the Silmarillion. The Tolkien Estate will be doing well financially, largely from LotR, and I don't think it's money that's holding back adaptation rights for the Sil.

In about 2043 it all goes public domain, so we'll see if there's still a big fanbase around then!

New Line can use the existing filmrights to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings to create new films derived from one or both works. This is what made the idea of a 'bridge' movie possible in the first place. I'm not sure what untold story would make for a satisfying movie; however, remember that the bare-bones of the story of Beren and Luthien is related in LotR. I suspect that what is provided is not enough to create a film faithful to Tolkien's lay, but that is just a single example.

I assume you have seen this great documentary about Joe Strummer.
