said in the original letter that WB was going to stop the bit about
other companies distributing internationally - because they already do
that and they want the money. So... whether they honor the original deal
or not with MGM distributing internationally, we don't know. They may
renogiate. The Hobbit will get made, there's no doubt about that.
> Guess more time to make quality costumes and armors for me andI've already been through the Hobbit and worked out all of the
costuming/armor references (yes, even which Dwarf played which
instrument!). I can post the pittance of armor info if you want it.
BTW, one of the early things mentioned is the Dwarves and their 'best
party hoods'. If you don't know how to make a hood that is not part of a
cloak (and only Balin seemed to wear a hooded cloak), there are at least
two commercial companies that have hood patterns. For the more authentic
looking, there is a website with the diagram for the Boksten hood.

"The Hobbit" has Guillermo Del Toro in talks to direct, and the
picture will be unaffected by the ouster of Shaye and Lynne.
Though the films won't be scripted until a director is hired, and
Jackson wraps "The Lovely Bones," the expectation is that the films
will be ready for release for Christmas 2011 and 2012. Harry Potter
will have wound down at WB by then, and the corporation will surely
welcome another fantasy franchise that has an eager global audience
New Line will distribute domestically, while MGM has international
Am keeping my fingers crossed now that they will still get done even
tho' NLC had now been absorbed by WB (which ironically distribute
and handle LOTR here in Singapore).
Guess more time to make quality costumes and armors for me and
