as opposed to factual events? Jokes aside, this could be the problem....who's going to take on this menacing and daunting task of writing the follow up to The Hobbit? The late, great Robert Jordan would of been pretty sweet.

Scripts finished by mid-2009 to shoot in Autumn 2009?? That doesn't leave a lot of time for pre-production.... Considering how much love and hardwork (and years!) went into creating the masterpiece that was LOTR, I really hope this isn't rushed through to meet the 2010 release date. I'd much rather they take and extra year to get it all right!

I'm looking forward to this - I loved the trilogy and Del Toro is a visionary genius. What worries me is the thought of Jackson & Boyens penning a sequel. They were fantastic at bringing Tolkien's world to life, but they had strange moments of insanity when trying to dabble with the story.

Remember how they wanted Arwen to fight at Helms Deep? Even worse, they wanted Aragorn to duel it out with Sauron in a big bout of fisticuffs outside the black gate. They changed this at the end to him fighting a troll instead.

It's those moments that bother me slightly. Lets hope that the small voice in their head that says "don't be stupid" continues to reign them in.

Walsh is involved. Accidentally left her off the original story through no dislike for Walsh, only due to writing things early and being bleary-eyed but have put her name in now.

No problem with The Hobbit, it would always have been the easiest Tolken book to adapt with its fairly simple, linier story arc. And Del Toro is an excellent directorial choice.

But why-oh-why are they making TWO movies? And just making one completely up, at that.

Its bound to be about Gandelf and his taking out of Sauron in Mirkwood (cool enough idea), but if they have the cheek to shoehorn Bilbo into that I'll spew.

And Ian Holm HAS to play Bilbo. The whole point is that he doesn't age a day after finding the ring.

You might want to change trio to quartet then.

I heard the book is out already. I mean c'mon! Imagine releasing a book based on a film that isnt even out yet. Have they no shame?

"My name? It's J.R.R. Tolkein."

Yell.com. It's not just there for the nasty things in life, like blocked drains, leaky roof tops and the most arduous opening of litererary trilogies ever conceived of by humankind.

..................and more beards.
Everyone in this movie will have beards, even the women and the children and the dragons and the trees and Tom Bombadil and Treebeard and old Beardy McBeard the Bearded from Beardakistan.
The director has a beard, the producer has a beard and ALL the writers have beards, (Think about it).
It should be renamed The Bearded Hobbit.

sorry to be a nagging mistake spotter there Olly. But back to topic i really don't see why anyone is worried about the second movie. These guys arn't going to do anything that could destroy the world that J.R.R created. Besides i think i would trust these four with my life, let alone a movie. Although this will be one of the biggest movie's it will still be a movie. So set back, relax and eargely await 2010 or whenever it is and then go to the cinema and back to middle earth.

I'm sure it'll be a fine movie...but it smacks of cynical moneygrabbing.

"How can we get more Hobbit dollar? We've only got one more shot...I know, lets just pump out a sequel."

"But we've already made the sequel."

"Then make another one up! Fuck it, we own the rights. People will go anyway."

At this rate the gap between the R.O.T.K. and the Hobbit will be so long that people may have lost their taste for all things Middle Earth, we've all seen what happens when you wait just a bit too long to do another pic from a beloved franchise. And while we're pondering that notion, where in the hell is Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones adaptation got to? I read the book, it aint that long, and hardly a huge effects movie either, weren't they filming this back in 2007? yet still no release date, or friggin trailer.

Christ! You think this is weak check out the coverage on the BBC News website. According to them Jackson only announced his input on writing duties today as they couldn’t find anyone else up to the task. Oh and the Hobbit will be split in two, so with the companion film that makes another trilogy right! C’mon world service, shocking journalism!!!
