"Hobbit" Delayed Until Late 2012

"Hobbit" Delayed Until Late 2012 Looks like the film is being delayed yet again, studio said 2012 then Peter Jackson came out and said that those rumblings weren't true, that it would get the 2011 release date as planned. But here is the news from the studio and we are now back till 2012 Once the script for the second film is in -- Jackson and his longtime collaborators Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens are working on it with Del Toro -- New Line will work up a budget for both films and start casting. New Line exec Michael Disco, who was once Emmerich's assistant, will oversee for the studio. Horn won't predict when the first of the two "Hobbit" films will be out, but says the most probable scenario would be a release in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Del Toro Updates Hobbit Info

Del Toro Updates Hobbit Info The highly decorated director writes: So, now that PJ’s Lovely Bones tour is almost over, I thought it wise- seeing how some can whip up into a frenzy- to drop by and chat a bit. A) About ONLY 3 actors returning: I think the emphasis on “only” is what slant the news the wrong way. I cannot imagine Gollum being played by anyone but Andy and in the second script there is still much in discussion to lock everything for now. Both PJ and I chime in on things “as they are at the moment” and, of course, things change. I, for one, understand where Peter’s coming from since 30% of my STRAIN tour questions, HELLBOY II, ORPHANAGE promotion questions, etc, etc where about the Hobbit. At different time we have been closer in locking on a piece of casting or hoping to get a script delivered, etc and things simply changed as we went along. So, don’t etch this in stone or anything we both have said in the past, in stone since we communicate what we can when the window of e

The Hobbit Movie Gets Delayed

The Hobbit Movie Gets Delayed Several reports are coming in that filming for The Hobbit will be delayed from the original estimate of March 2010 to mid-summer 2010, possibly July. The German site,, reports that, as part of an interview regarding The Lovely Bones, PJ estimates filming will begin towards the middle of next year: “We’re currently working on the second script which we hope to have completed by the end of this year or beginning of next. When the scripts are completed, we can begin with the exact calculation of the necessary budget. We hope to start filming in the middle of next year. However, we’ve received no green light from the studio yet.” (- translated from German – read the original quote here). PJ didn’t elaborate on whether this will affect the proposed release dates of December 2011 and 2012. More than two years elapsed between the start of filming for The Lord of the Rings movies in October, 1999, and the release of The Lord of the Rings: T

Brain Cox As A Dwarf In The Hobbit?

Brain Cox As A Dwarf In The Hobbit? So, speculating hat on. There are a bakers' dozen dwarves in The Hobbit: Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin (Gimli's dad), Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, Ori, and of course, main-man Thorin Oakenshield. [Spoilers coming if you haven't read the book]. Most obvious of those roles for an actor of repute would be Thorin (it's pronounced Thaureen, you know): haughty, stern and officious; all traits that Cox has played before with aplomb. He fights alongside Gandalf in the goblin tunnels and dies a heroic death at the Battle of the Five Armies. But he's also a bit annoying and rubbish: getting himself captured before anyone else at Mirkwood, making serious diplomatic gaffes at Laketown and throwing a big strop when Bilbo nicks the Arkenstone. Anyone who spent hours playing the Spectrum game in the 80s, in which Thorin spent vast tracts of time sitting on his arse singing about gold and refusing to help you out of the goblin's
