PostSubject: Peter Jackson to produce `The Hobbit'   Tue Dec 18, 2007 11:56 am



NEW YORK - Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema have reached agreement to make J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit," a planned prequel to the blockbuster trilogy "The Lord of the Rings."

Jackson, who directed the "Rings" trilogy, will serve as executive producer for "The Hobbit." A director for the prequel films has yet to be named.

Relations between Jackson and New Line had soured after "Rings," despite a collective worldwide box office gross of nearly $3 billion — an enormous success. The two sides nevertheless were able to reconcile, with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM) splitting "The Hobbit" 50/50, spokemen for both studios said Tuesday.

"I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us, so that we may begin a new chapter with our old friends at New Line," Jackson said in a statement. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth."

Two "Hobbit" films are scheduled to be shot simultaneously, similar to how the three "Lord of the Rings" films were made. Production is set to begin in 2009 with a released planned for 2010, with the sequel scheduled for a 2011 release.

Wow, this sounds exciting :sillySmiley:
I really like the story of The Hobbit. I wonder who will be the main actor. I think in the Lord of the Ring movies... the hobbit from this movie was the old man who was writing down everything on the book right? His stories of seeing Gollum, etc... The one that went with Frodo in the boat towards the end... so for sure Elijah Wood won't be the main actor...

Did you know The Beatles were actually going to do the Lord of the Rings ? J.R.R denied them.

Me too, Buttercup. I'm a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings.


I remember the time I knew what happiness was...let the memory live again.
