Good question...

Thats a bit strange - one minute, he says "yes, I'll make a film version", next minute "no, not be, but perhaps some other guy... NLC got all the rights".

Hypernova
NLC?

I've heard that it's to be given a TV series makeover. well that's what Ian McKellen said anyhow

Hypernova
New Line Cinema!! no

My understanding is that PJ didn't start with "The Hobbit" because New Lines did not own the rights to it, and another company did. That at the present moment New Lines is trying to secure the rights to "The Hobbit". PJ has said that he would be willing to film "The Hobbit", but after a break (he's been working on these three films after it's all done for 7-8 years).

Let's just cross our fingers that New Lines can come up with the millions to secure the right to "The Hobbit" and PJ gets a good rest before production.

in a recent issue of sfx, the lotr actors did mention something about hobbit when they were at this convention.

Hypernova
New characters or stick with Gandalf and Bilbo etc?

It won't be done unless the original actors can be in it - Jackson wouldn't allow it smile

... But I think Bilbo should look a bit different... I mean when The Hob happens, he's the same age as Frodo, but (in the foreword) looks faaaar older

Ian Holm is too old.. but Ian McKellan isn't.. he should reprise his role as Gandalf.

Dude! It's Hollywood! Not only do they have the technology to make Ian Holm look younger, they also have really thin prothetics (did I spell it right?). That's my bit.

billyboyd4ever
um in FOTR when they showed holm finding the ring as young bilbo, they taped his face back (hahah laughing out loud ) i dont kno ho wmuch holm would like that for a whole movie...of course he'd get paid a ton, but still...

must_kill_Santa
