So he's saying that the Hobbit film might be filmed in Eastern Europe? That's great news actually.

And Hugo Weaving is joining the protest? That might even lead to a visually acceptable Elrond actor.

Not good: Fire destroys part of Hobbit set.

I don't understand why this production is been so difficult to get off the ground. Maybe they should have struck when the iron was hot -- shortly after the LOTR trilogy concluded.

Apparently Jackson just signed on officially to direct and now other countries around the world are bidding for the new production location. It JUST MIGHT happen...

It will happen. There's way too much money at stake for it not to happen. Rumor is the squabble with the unions is close to being resolved and the films will be officially greenlit in time to begin production next January. That's still just rumor, for now, but I think we'll have a green light by November.

The question isn't whether they will be made, but will they be made in New Zealand. Chances are they will be, but the unions are giving it a workout. You have Boyens talking abot all the other places wanting to give it a go, they are trying to get the best deal is all.

According to TheOneRing.net, the labor negotiations have failed. It's looking less and less likely that they'll be filming in New Zealand once MGM gets itself sorted out and the project is officially greenlit.

Excellent news. I hope they move to Eastern Europe. And Jackson seems to have lost weight too, which suits him well []

If so, what are the chances that he'll include more of the actual book? Maybe he had a epiphany. []

More from the LotR Appendices, perhaps?

Maybe those hobbit archers that went to the battle of Fornost?
