Two new LOTR movies – Yey!

I loved reading Prof. J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings and all other Middle Earth related books written during WW II season. And there’s no need to talk about LOTR movies done by Peter Jakson because they made a land mark in modern Hollywood movies, specially in Special Effects arena. Then LOTR games done by EA Sports also became one of my favourites. So all and all I’m a huge fan of Lord of The Rings in every aspect.

After the success of LOTR movies it was reported that there has been some issues between New Line Cinema and Peter Jakson. But it made my day hearing that Peter Jakson and Fran Walsh are going to build another two more movies based on “The Hobbit”, which is the preclude to Lord of The Rings trilogy.

PETER JACKSON AND NEW LINE CINEMA JOIN WITH MGM TO PRODUCE “THE HOBBIT” Movie

Hopefully we will be able to see another two great LOTR movies in another few years time.

    Two? Is there really enough material in the Hobbit to warrant two movies? As much of a Tolkien and Middle-earth nutcase that I am, I somehow find that hard to believe. Although I’d love to be proven wrong!

    And after that…well, there’s always Silmarillion to make film of (which is about as likely to happen as me becoming the next president of the U.S….)

    Yes, that is amazing. Great news!

    I can’t see how a Silmarillion movie could be done, there is some too abstract stuff there to be represented in movies… or it is just me that have no imagination do to so :P

    BTW, the book’s tile is “The Hobbit” not “The Hobbits”.
    Regards.

    Wonderful Wonderful news!!
    I always wanted to know more about the development of Bilbo’s character and that was what got me going on the Hobbit.
    You must be wrong on the two film thing though becoz I agree with Jonas theres hardly enough content!
    Anyway Many thanks for the wonderful news!
    May the power of the ring be with you!

    Great. So apparently Peter Jackson is now back in friendship with New Line. Now we can look forward to something in the leagues of LoTR.

    Maybe they should make movies on “The Silmarillion”. :)

  6. Laknath says:

    Jonas, yes. I too wonder whether there’s enough material for two movies. But the news is such, scheduled to be released in 2009 and 2010.

    cypherbios, yeah. I don’t think there’s any way to make a complete Silmarillion movie, it’s too much of a history book. But it’s possible to extract materials from it to be put into “The Hobbit”.

    Updated:
    It is reported here that first movie is on “The Hobbit” while sequel works as a bridge to fill the gap between The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
