You probably don’t give a flying Balrog about this.. but a little bit ago the family of J.R.R. Tolkien tried to stop the recent production of “The Hobbit” which if you didn’t already know.. was the story of how Bilbo Baggins got the “One Ring” and then he and some dwarves and some other guys living in a village.. fought a big dragon named Smaug.
Anyhoo it’s a great story.. and a really good read, and it will now be allowed to be made into a movie now that the whole money thing has been sorted out.. I don’t blame the Tolkien Family.. he sold the rights with the stipulation that the Estate would get a percentage.. and Guess what? No money was every paid.. wouldn’t you be pissed too?
So Hobbit movie is set for 2011 and will be a 2 part movie, it will be Directed by Guillermo del Toro, who directed Hellboy. If you are wondering who did the rest of the LOTR movies that was Peter Jackson.. lets hope they make extended versions of these 2, although.. with 2 movies.. they might not have anything to extend.. (lets hope they still cut out all the damn singing tho.)
