Breaking Movie News

The Hobbit is Greenlit!!

This man will helm both upcoming Hobbit films...

In what is surely great news for Hobbits, Dwarves and Wizards everywhere, news broke yesterday that The Hobbit, the much (much much) anticipated prequel film series to The Lord Of The Rings, has been greenlit by Warner Bros and MGM Studios, and will commence filming in February. This report at the LA Times also indicates that the greenlight on The Hobbit will hopefully speed up the union issues which have plagued the production being done in New Zealand. The fine folks over at Time are also stating this morning that Peter Jackson is a lock to direct, which is even better news!!!

The first Hobbit film is scheduled for release in 3D in December 2012 (hopefully the world won’t have ended by then) and the second film the following year.

We want to hear from you!!! Leave us your thoughts here!!!

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
