FILMING: starting in June, or OCTOBER?

This is actually the same as the last predicted date, but its much sooner than I'd dared hope recently because of the MGM auction and delayed greenlight. However, if this is actually the case, it likely means the MGM situation is being resolved and/or a greenlight and approved budget will be given soon. It also means that we still have a chance at a December 2011 release date. 8-)

Yes indeedy. Ady posted a new blog confirming the story this morning. But apparently one of our members Iain)wgtn0128 (a resident of Wellington) beat bloggers to this story.

This indicates that all the rumours of delays and the casting uncertainty may just be a ploy. Jackson and DT might just be playing extremely close to the vest.

I certainly hope so, but I'm not sure the green-light talk has been lies (or, more charitably, smoke and mirrors). However, if the MGM situation is resolved soon, then I think the June date is definitely as possible as the latest stories suggest. :)

Well, nothing is certain. ;)

But I do give local accounts higher regard than other sources. Locals are usually the first to know when films go into production as logistical arrangements for set production, security and the like must be pre-arranged.

A rough translation of the above;

''Ask against door-way AMONG Us napoo ??????? , supernatant ??????? ampersand the rest of it dirt. AMONG Us You ?????? horse-race film ???? , chime , catalogue , day-book , twelve , ?.?.?. all free of charge ampersand minus file!''

The spammers are even coming in russian.... :evil:

Sadly. :( I agree about local sources though, as I mentioned in another thread.

I'm afraid that translation is all but unintelligible to me, Aule. I was able to get some measure of success with Google Translator, but won't bother posting it here and giving the spammer more exposure (I expect he'll be deleted soon anyway).
