Re: The Hobbit will be directed by Peter Jackson

It doesnt get better than Jackson directing this type of movie. Too bad the Halo movie has been scrapped. He could have done wonders with it

Re: The Hobbit will be directed by Peter Jackson

If you guys are LOTR fans HBO has purchased the rights to a Fantasy series called "A song of Ice and Fire" written by George Martin. So far there are 4 books complete of a target 7. Each book will get a whole season on HBO with HBO's budget. Martins book is not very fantasyish but more Arthurian loaded with violence and sex.

Think Lord of the Riong s meets the Sopranos and instead of 3 hours per book...12 hours per book, in HD.

Ok I'm done revealing my geekdom.

TWO Hobbit movies? From John Scalzi's Whatever

Quote:
The Sound of a Million Elves Celebrating

To my surprise, I find I’m on New Line Cinema’s PR list, so let me pass on this bit of news: Peter Jackson’s gonna make two films from The Hobbitt:

Los Angeles, CA (Tuesday, December 18, 2007) Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson; Harry Sloan, Chairman and CEO, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM); Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, Co-Chairmen and Co-CEOs of New Line Cinema have jointly announced today that they have entered into the following series of agreements:

* MGM and New Line will co-finance and co-distribute two films, “The Hobbit” and a sequel to “The Hobbit.” New Line will distribute in North America and MGM will distribute internationally.

....

A sequel to the Hobbit?

Re: TWO Hobbit movies? From John Scalzi's Whatever

Well, I like how they explained how Jackson went from hero to persona non grata to hero again at New Line. I am glad that they're making this, but isn't Lord of the Rings the sequel to the Hobbit?

Quote:
Why did this happen now, after many years of bitterness between Jackson and New Line over the Lord of the Rings payouts? I suppose there are many reasons, but I would suppose one very relevant proximate cause would be Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne trying to save their asses in the wake of the very expensive The Golden Compass cratering very badly at the box office ($40 million in two weeks, with a nearly 66% dropoff in the second weekend — not good news when your production budget is $180 million and you’ve sold off the foreign rights).

'The Hobbit' is a go with Peter Jackson

Dec 18, 2007, 08:11 PM | by Nicole Sperling

Categories: Movie Biz, The Hobbit

It's back to Middle Earth for Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, and the boys from New Line. Finally, the years of disputes have ended, and the partners (including co-producer and co-distributor MGM) are gearing up for two new Hobbit movies. EW investigated, talking to the parties behind the negotiations to uncover how everything got resolved, and to get an idea of what viewers can expect of these adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien's original literary masterpiece. Here's the lowdown:

Jackson and his life/creative partner Walsh have always envisioned the big-screen adaptation of The Hobbit as two movies. The first would deal with the 80-year old novel. The second, imagined entirely by Jackson and Walsh, would link the conclusion of The Hobbit to the start of the first Lord of the Rings book, The Fellowship of the Ring. New Line and Jackson will develop the properties over the next year with hopes of entering into pre-production by 2009 for a 2010 and 2011 release. No writers, including Jackson, Walsh, and their longtime partner Philippa Boyens, have been commissioned. (None can be, because of the strike.)

New Line has already decided that both films will be produced at the same time, in similar fashion to how the LOTR trilogy was put together, and no budgets have been assigned the films yet. According to New Line's co-chair Robert Shaye, "You can't budget an idea."

The bolded sentence is the part I'm leery of.

The hobbitheads are going to throw a fit if you do something like that.Of course you'll gross a billion dollars.I would be willing to piss off a lot of people for substantially less personally.

Yeah. To be fair, Jackson is decent, so the movie doesn't have to suck... it just probably will.

If it's anything like the LOTR trilogy, expect two hours of Frodo and Sam having creepy, homo-erotic conversations.

Re: TWO Hobbit movies? From John Scalzi's Whatever

Should be interesting to see how Jackson works with thirteen dwarves and a hobbit as a main cast.

I hope McKellen reprises his role as Gandalf, at the very least.

That's called male bonding.


Anyways, to see the genius that is Peter Jackson you must rent Meet the Feebles.
