TORn and Warner Bros: HOBBIT 1 SET FOR DEC. 2012

Post#1 » Wed Apr 28, 2010 5:32 pm

It's not an official announcement, but I trust TORn more than all other sites, blogs, and anonymous sources put together. While I'd still like to see an official announcement, this is the next best thing.

Update: Collider.com reports that Warner Bros. has confirmed this date. See the link in a below post.

Yes, I trust TORn very much, too. This is good news, but it still means they probably won't start shooting next month.

Agreed. I can't see them beginning the shoot much in the Summer or before given the rate that the MGM situation is progressing at. PJ made a comment a while ago that if they could start filming by June they could still be done in time for 2011, but given the latest news I think the shoot will start, at earliest, sometime this autumn.

Plus, the film would have had to have been greenlit a while ago for them to shoot this summer. And I expect a big announcement when it's actually officially greenlit. And that day will be a day for partying on Tolkien and LOTR forums worldwide :D.

With the Party Tree!!!! It'll be a night to remember!!
And i think everyone will know when the movie begins shooting. I remember there was a huge fuss when Jackson said he wasn't directing the Hobbit and GDT was. It was on the homepage of comcast.net.

There are plenty of great, or at least interesting movies due to come out between now and then, and I'm sure there will be ones that nobody sees coming. :mrgreen: Plus we have the books and the existing LOTR films to keep us happy, so it's not like we'll have nothing to do. :)
