17012Peter Jackson and The Hobbit
- Oct 1, 2006For those of you that are gullible enough to still think that Peter Jackson
has the slightest shred of decency in him, consider the following statement
about Jackson (from _Entertainment Weekly_, September 29, 2006, page 17):
> . . . Jackson has indeed started thinking about what he might do with _TheHobbit_. He's
> especially intrigued by the idea of making two films and inventing newmaterial to fill in
> gaps in the story, since the plot . . . is fairly simplistic compared withLOTR.
There's no mention of Tolkien after the first paragraph of this article.
Apparently Tolkien has now reached the status of "Huh, Tolkien? He's like the
writer of the book, right? He's been dead three decades and his family
doesn't even own the cinematic rights to the stories, right? Could someone please
prepare a summary of the plot of the book? I don't have time to read an
entire book before writing a script."
