Yessssss, Preciousssssss

Doesn’t time fly when you’re enjoying yourself? I was surprised to find that it was over a year ago that I mentioned the game of advanced silly buggers being played by New Line over the production rights to the movie of The Hobbit. At the time, there was a disagreement between Peter Jackson and New Line over money, which led to New Line getting very huffy and telling Mr Jackson that he wasn’t going to make the Hobbit movie, so there. But now it seems that they’ve kissed and made up, and Peter Jackson will be making the, err, two movies. Presumably that will be one of the Hobbit, and one of that cobbled together “prequel” thingy they were threatening last year. The movies are to be released in 2010 and 2011, so there’s not too long to wait.
