Well since Lord of the Rings Return of the king is done.....
« on: April 26, 2005, 02:26:56 pm »
Who predicts that they will make a movie on the Hobbit?  8) Id see it. Plus it would inform people about the back story behind the ring for those too lazy to read

I thought there were already plans for this. I know when Fellowship came out in theatres Peter Jackson was mentioned as saying that he wanted to make a Hobbit miniseries, but I think that got canned because he decided he wants to make it a movie. We'll have to wait and see after he finishes the remake of Kind Kong. ;D

From what I've heard, they do want to make a movie and the only problem is that 2 different companies control the rights.  One to make the movie and another for distribution.  Obviously, neither wants to lose the chance to make a bajillion dollars so there's some dispute.  After Jackson finishes King Kong and WETA finishes Chronicles of Narnia, we should have a better idea of what's going down. I just hope they can do it before Ian Holm and Ian McKellen go tets up. -leeman

Peter Jackson originally wanted to do a movie of The Hobbit, but he couldnt secure the rights to produce it, so he made LOTR instead

I'm betting that one will be done especially with the sucess of the LOTR series.  I hope they do.. well, I hope Peter Jackson does.

Has anyone listened to the many commentaries for the LOTR movies? What I have done is I burned all the commentaries to my ipod and then I listen to them (just like podcasting ... but different). They are definitely worth listening to, extremely interesting and you learn cool stuff.

For example, in the movie "The Black Gate" has two doors when it should have only one, but there was a typo in the script where it read "The Black Gates" so prop department made two gates instead of just one. And it was too late so they put that into the movie. Tons of cool stuff like that you'll find out.

huh.. Thats cool. There are a lot of things in the movie slightly different than the book. But I watch it for fun not to find all the imperfections.

I once saw a James Bond movie (dont remember witch) That while James is driving up a tunnle he enters it at Midnight, the next seen its daylight, then dark again, and finalanly he leaves the tunnle in mid day light  8)

I have listened to a few of the commentaries, and have watched all of the extras from all 3 extended editions.  Thats 24 hours in the extras alone.  I figure if you add it all up there is 11.5 (movies) * 5 (1 without and 4 with commentaries) + 24 (extras) = 81.5 hours of content in the whole series!  Ripping the commentaries off seems like a great idea.  They are deffinatly my favorite movies of all time.

Looks like you're right Lemur
The rights to J.R.R. Tolkien's novel, "The Hobbit," are split between MGM and New Line Cinema. Jackson said he was keen to return to Middle Earth but that MGM's sale to a consortium led by Sony made the project's future unclear.
  "I think there is probably a will and a desire to try and get it made," he added. "But I think it's gonna be a lot of lawyers sitting in a room trying to thrash out a deal before it will ever happen."

I highly doubt NewLine will be involved to much, seeing as Jackson tried to sue them for several million dollars.
I hope they dont do a Hobbit movie. The Hobbit was more of a childs book compared to LOTR, so I wouldnt be suprised if the movie turned out to be aimed at a young audience.

While The Hobbit was much more kid friendly I still think it would make a great movie.  I think it is enjoyable for all ages, and if Peter Jackson did it he would probably go the more adult route.
