Title: Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: HobbitFancier on April 05, 2004, 09:40:24 pm

TheOneRing.net has started up what could very well turn out to be the biggest campaign of the century!

I'm sure we all want to see the Hobbit up on the big screen; and directed by Peter Jackson, of course. And so now it's time for us to all take some action.

The new project, called 'LET THE HOBBIT HAPPEN!' is just in its first stages. Right now, it's all about writing letters and sending postcards to the executives, begging them to get the rights sorted out. We need to let them know how much we want this movie made!!

If you'd like to see what you can do to help, go to www.TheHobbitFilm.com and get those pens scratching!

With a fanbase as huge as LotR and PJ has, just think what we could do!

Cool

I'm pretty sure they want to come to a desision too though- I would think the main problem lies in cash distribution but *signs petition* Wow, thats alot of signatures

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: severance on April 07, 2004, 06:01:43 pm

i not only signed the petition, but sent a postcard to MGM and New Line Cinema saying that the film must be made! and hopefully, it will...

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: HobbitFancier on April 07, 2004, 08:33:56 pm

Way to go, girls!

Yeah, I'm sure that New Line wants to get it all worked out (afterall, they're not stupid.. they know how much money could be in this), but it can't hurt to urge them on a little faster, right?

With all the petitions, letters, and postcards expressing interest in the film, it'll only help them to be sure that a lot of money would result from the movie being made.

And so, with that in mind, perhaps they'll make more of an effort to start making things happen. At least, that's the main idea of it.

Post by: midnightly on April 10, 2004, 04:28:22 pm

i thought New line already had the rights, because i remeber reading somewhere that the JRRtolkien decendants who hold the rights to the books and movie rights have allowed the hobbit to be done under the stipulation that only peter Jackson does it(i read this a few months back on IMDB i'm pretty sure) and i heard something that PJ said he would do the hobbit but after he finishes his current project he has on the go

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: HobbitFancier on April 10, 2004, 10:20:53 pm

New Line has the production rights to the project, yes. And Peter Jackson has indeed expressed interest in making the film, after he's finished up with King Kong.

However, another studio has the distribution rights to the Hobbit (I think it may be Miramax.. or maybe MGM? I don't remember). But in any case, it doesn't work out that way.

New Line could make the movie, sure. But they couldn't market it very well, or distribute it without the distribution rights. Meaning it wouldn't make any money. So they're kind of in a bind.

Both studios, I'm sure, would love the project under their name. And so maybe that's where the problem is arising.. who knows. All I know is that at the present time, it can't be made. The two studios have to come to some sort of agreement first. And that's what this project is trying to get done.

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: Raiwen on April 14, 2004, 10:17:53 am

Bad idea. If PJ doesn't want to make the film and the studio are presented with a petition like this they'll get anyone they can to make it...

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: HobbitFancier on April 15, 2004, 12:18:07 am

PJ has said he would like to do it, but he hasn't officially been hired yet, due to the studios not having everything worked out yet...

Below is an official letter from Bob Shaye from New Line Cinema in response to the "Let the Hobbit happen" campain. It seems that it'll take some time to sort everything out.
----------------------------------

Dear Loyal LOTR Fans,

Thank you very, very much for the incredible outpouring of support for LOTR, and your eagerness to see THE HOBBIT.

We, at New Line, are most touched and appreciative of your compliments, and your passion for the remarkable work of the author, the filmmakers, talent, and craftspeople.

We are also, as you, most anxious to see THE HOBBIT realized.

Please be assured that there is, in no way, a crass argument with MGM or anyone over money or rights. In fact, no discussions about any settlement of our respective claims, has been commenced. When, and if, such discussions ensue, be assured that we intend to be equitable and appropriate to the spirit of Tolkien, and THE HOBBIT. We will, as much as possible, "do the right thing", respecting the incredible loyalty and appreciation of the worldwide fans. We hope that MGM will feel the same.

However, we also wish to have the film overseen by the best possible mentors - and, for us, if possible, that means Peter and Fran. They are totally occupied by KING KONG now and, we believe, will be the next twenty-four months, or so.

So our efforts will take time to realize.

Sincerely,

Robert Shaye
Co-CEO/Co-Chairman
New Line Cinema

I've signed at PETITIONONLINE.COm ;D

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: brissybaggins on April 27, 2004, 06:36:36 pm

I have mixed feelings about this. I mean, if Peter and Fran want to do it, then they should, in their own creative time. I just don't think they should be pushed into it by a corporation. Great art, such as LOTR doesn't come from money pushes that decided to fund or not fund a movie.

Also, i remember reading a while back that Ian McKellian (sp, sorry) said he would not do a movie version of The Hobbit, but rather a made for TV version. Of course, I can't remember exaclty if it was Ian or Pete that made that stipulation. Either way, a made for TV version would NEVR stand up to LOTR because it wouldn't get the same funding and the digital effects would fall short.

I guess this petiton makes me think that there a lot of people, including me, who are sad to see that the time of the LOTR triliogy is over, and they would like something as magical and wonderful to look forawrd to again. I just don't know if pressuring a Director and a talented team of artists to recreate a movie experience is logical or practical. I don't think I would want it that way. What I see is a big chance of a lot of people being dissappointed because it isn't as great as the triliogy and in turn, the triliogy and Pete and the team are tarnished. Maybe this is a pesimistic outlook, but I'd rather that be preserved. I'd rather that memory stay the same.

Ho hum...I still don't know if I am going to sign it. I'm not saying all this to create hype or stir people up. I just thought I'd share my thoughts.

Best,
-BB

I really hope they let it happen. Good casting will be to have Ian McKellan as Gandalf and Elijah OR Ian Holm as Frodo.

I totally think that this idea should become a reality. It is such an exciting thing to see the Lord of the Rings books made into films, so now all we need to do is to make the Hobbit into a film. It totally deserves it.It is a great book and would love to see it made into a film. I am totally signing this petition, thing. Totally. I'll quit rambling now. Bye!

Yeah, that's what I was talking about. I'm positive it wouldn't be as good on a mini series, it just seems it would loose it's luster; i'm not ready for that shine to fade.

Ugg, I'm so torn. I still don't think it would be good on tv, and I still think a movie version would be dissappointing to a lot of fans because it will be so far from the triligy (new technology, less money?, a whole new cast.)

If they can't get the two Ians to come back, I don't think there is much point in it. The fan base would be lessened. Uggg...

I don't mean to sound like a pooper, just what I think the reality of it may be.

-BB

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: HobbitFancier on June 25, 2004, 03:01:41 pm

I understand totally where you're coming from, BB. If they did the miniseries, a lot more detail could be put into them, but you would lose that movie magic. If they did a movie, some of the detail might be lost. It's kind of a lose-lose situation, as far as the details of the story are concerned.

But I still want to see it made. Only if PJ makes it, of course.

Ian McKellen said if PJ did it, he'd totally be on for the Hobbit. So in that respect, it'd be worth it. And Andy would undoubtedly be back as Gollum. As far Ian Holm as Biblo though.. hmm. Not sure if they could make him young enough, you know?

The Hobbit is so different from LotR though.. I personally don't think any of the LotR fanbase would be lost, simply because the Hobbit is just another work of Tolkiens, and would be another work of Peter Jackson's, as well - an exceptionally good combination. And being that the Hobbit is so different, who knows! Maybe a whole new fanbase would spring up.

But I guess we'll never know unless it happens.

i figure that if New Line have the rights or whatever they probably wouldn't want anyone else to make the Hobbit. you wouldn't really want it coming out looking completely different to Lord of the Rings it would be like really weird. But i'm pretty sure PJ is discussing after King Kong or something like that. he said it in one of his interviews i think

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: midnightly on August 25, 2004, 03:14:42 pm

i thought peter jackson already had the rights from the tolkien household to do the hobbit... just under some conditions(only peter jackson can do it and i think that a few actors need to remain the same) i read it on IMDB.com probally 4 months ago(and i dont think they spread rumors)

[color=Purple]I am very angry that Time Warner didn't bid high enough to out bid Sony for the purchase of MGM!! Now the distribution rights belong to Sony, and the rights to make the film belong to Peter Jackson, who I presume, would like to make The Hobbit with New Line (Time Warner).

WHAT A MESS!!

On top of all of that, The Hobbit needs to be made before Sir Ian McKellen has a hard time looking the same, if not younger, than he does in the LOTR. No, Gandalf doesn't have to look younger, but he mustn't look older, you know.[/color]

Post by: HobbitFancier on February 21, 2005, 02:07:26 pm

I read that article too..

But don't get your hopes up too high yet. PJ is supposed to film "The Lovely Bones" after he's done with "King Kong." So if the Hobbit happens, it'll be after that now.. :-\

I want to see it filmed just as much as all of you.. but it's gonna be tough. Meep.. I hope they work it out.

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: SweetestHeart on February 24, 2005, 02:01:04 am

Yes, I am aware that Peter is scheduled to film The Lovely Bones next. I wasn't expecting The Hobbit to be his next project. So, that doesn't discourage me in any way regarding the prospects of him taking on the challenges posed by filming The Hobbit.

:)

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: magicdancer on February 24, 2005, 07:32:39 pm

Guess I'll jump in here with my two cents. I don't think any studio would be dumb enough to try to make "The Hobbit" without PJ as director -- and filming in NZ.

PJ wants to do it and many of the LOTR cast have said they'll take any part that is offered to them.

The hitch is the rights. One movie studio has the rights to MAKE the film and another has the rights for DISTRIBUTION.

Frankly, I think they should quit putzing around and get together because there's a ton of money to made for all concerned if the film can happen.

Thanks for your "two cents" Yeux! It's similar to what I wrote on the last page. But, I believe that Peter owns the right to make the film. I read in the same article that said Sony won the bid last year, that he could choose to make it with Sony and forgo all of the complications of working with two studios. BUT I don't think he will abandon New Line like that. They took a big chance on him in the beginning.

:)

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: magicdancer on February 25, 2005, 04:51:17 pm

Oh Sweetest, I hope you're right about PJ holding one of the rights. And I hope he doesn't shut out New Line. The chance they took on him and LOTR was nothing short of miraclulous and I wish he would stay with New Line. They and PJ's crew all know each other now and it would make everything go much more smoothly.

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: SweetestHeart on March 01, 2005, 03:15:31 am

:-*

[color=Purple]I kinda have my heart set on it, Yeux! I really want this movie to be made, and I want it to be at least as good as the trilogy. If Peter can make some aspects of it better, then more power to him! And, yes, New Line is amazing! They deserve to be a part of this project if/when it gets done.

Let's go to the Prayer thread and start a prayer campaign for The Hobbit to be made!!![/color]


:)

:)

[color=Purple]Yeux! I'm very confused now. I have seen an article that says that Peter Jackson owns the right to make The Hobbit, AND, I have seen an article that says that New Line owns the right to make it. I can only find one of them, but I am positively sure I read the other one also.

Anyway, I sure hope Peter owns it because, not only would New Line have a problem working things out with Sony, but now Peter is suing New Line over profits from FOTR and, possibly, the rest of the trilogy.

I repeat, WHAT A MESS!!![/color]

But I don't know. somehow I have this fear that what if this film doen't turn out to be as good as LOTR because most of the time a sequel/prequel doesn't turn out to be as good as expected just like The Matrix trilogy. I hope I may be proved wrong by Mr. Jackson.

If Peter does "The Hobbit" I don't think you have to worry about it not being as good. I have every faith in him to do a fantastic job. And the CGI possibilities just keep getting better and better. It should be awesome!

And then I remembered, Peter is making The Hobbit! :D
I think it's going to be fantastic. More familiar to me to watch than Lord of the Rings by far, because I've read The Hobbit twice and I've only read Lord of the Rings after I saw the movies. This one's going to be very close to me.

Post by: Blue Star on April 02, 2005, 11:13:26 pm

I'm wondering, will they be able to make Ian Holm look young enough to be a believable Bilbo in the past? Because he's getting old. Other than that, I have no doubt that if they have regular cast people (and good new ones of course) this movie will be amazing!!

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: magicdancer on April 02, 2005, 11:47:44 pm

They could still use Andy Serkis/CGI Gollum, but let's face it, the others will really be too old. Look at all the wonderful people PJ came up with for the LOTR films -- people the majority of us had never heard of. He can do it again for "The Hobbit." I'd love it if he made it with new people.

Most people think in the "Hobbit" Bilbo will be played by Ian Holm. Some people think he'll be played by Elijah Wood. Who is right? I think that will be Woodie because Tolkien wrote Frodo and Bilbo had had similar faces 8)

*thinks* I know this is kinda off topic, but at the same time it kinda relates (has to do with the article someone posted on the 1st page) I wonder why Sir Ian thought his character (Gandalf) would lose popularity after he "came back to life" in TTT? I was thinking (and this is just my own, overanalytical speculation ::)) that maybe he thought some fans would think they were trying to make him seem like Jesus and get offended *shrugs* but Gandalf is the best! :D I dunno about making the Hobbit into a movie *shrugs again*

I never thought of it in this way but maybe Tolkien was thinking that way when he wrote it.He was religious so who knows.Gandalf is rad!I also think that when they(the elves,Gandalf,Bilbo,etc)were leaving they were goingthe grey havens that's their "heaven" if I may say.Tolkien didn't use those words but I think that's what he meant.There are lots of overtones there.Still excellent movies.

I think that they should do The hobbit.

They were excellent movies :) I knew Tolkien wrote it like that (I haven't read the books [yet ;)] but I do my research 8)) But, like me, not everyone has read the books..heck Ian hadn't even read the books before he got his part in the movie, and even then, there are still lots of people who don't understand literary technique and symbolism and so that, combined with a lot of people who hadn't read the books were goin to see the movie, he might of been afraid that some people would get offended....

[color=Purple]Yeux! I'm very confused now. I have seen an article that says that Peter Jackson owns the right to make The Hobbit, AND, I have seen an article that says that New Line owns the right to make it. I can only find one of them, but I am positively sure I read the other one also.

Anyway, I sure hope Peter owns it because, not only would New Line have a problem working things out with Sony, but now Peter is suing New Line over profits from FOTR and, possibly, the rest of the trilogy.

I repeat, WHAT A MESS!!![/color]
[/quote]

[color=Navy]What a mess, indeed! Except that, in the film world, lawsuits such as this are just business as usual, and don't mean folks can't work together again. So I don't believe the lawsuit would keep Peter from working with New Line.

On the issue of the rights, it is New Line who owns filming rights, and now Sony (since they bought MGM/United Artists) who owns the distribution rights. I do wish both studios would let go of their greed a bit and give the world this film! Very frustrating, it is. >:(

By the way, thanks, everyone who has signed the petition. Peter is behind us 100%, and I try to keep the folks in NZ at Weta and Wingnut informed of how many signatures we have. And I am just about to send the link to the studios involved as well, to remind them we are out here and are serious about this film!

Rest assured, Peter still wants to make The Hobbit. Keep spreading the word, and encouraging your friends to sign. Right now we have just over 31,000 signatures, but there is no reason to stop now!

In case anyone needs it, here is the link to the petition:

LOL, the petition has been out there in the world for a long time, but I am very glad to know that folk in the industry do know about it. I've sent all the studios involved copies of the signatures way back when it was at around 11,000. The petition has gotten too big (well over 1000 pages) for me to easily print off and give them hard copies any longer, but they will be getting CDs with the sigs before too long. I also keep Peter informed of how we are doing, and his messages of encouragement really help keep my spirits up about one day seeing this story on film. So everybody, keep signing, and let's make that dream come true for all Hobbit fans! 8)

Thanks again, seven, and you are right... hard copy does make a difference. I'm really glad you asked this question, because there are names and addresses on the petition itself, but some of those have changed since the petition was written. Petitiononline has just enabled petition admins like myself to add updates to their original petitions, and I am working on one right now. It will include the current names and addresses of studio heads to whom letters should be addressed. Please look for the names and addresses there in the update notice later today or early tomorrow.

But The LOTR Movies are my Fav of all time Movies. I hope they get somebody REALLY Good to play Bilbo. Ian would be nice, but I'm sure they'll get somebody younger. Hope he's as cute as Frodo, Sam, Pippin, and Merry ^_^ heheh. I think THE HOBBIT Would be a smash at the Box Office!

[color=Navy]Wanted to let you folks in on the big campaign to get The Hobbit Petition up to 50,000 signatures. There have been about 2000 signatures added in the past two weeks, since I ran into Calisuri from TOR.n at ELF and we had a chat - he went back and posted a story about the Let The Hobbit Happen campaign and petition, and boom! lots more sigs lately. :)

Once we hit 50,000 (or even sooner, if it works better for my work/travel schedule), the petition will be printed out in three hard copies and hand delivered to New Line, MGM/UA and Sony, hopefully with media coverage. We currently have nearly 36,800 signatures, so if yours isn't on there yet, or you have family and friends you can get to sign, please give them the link now! And thanks, everyone, for your support. I do believe it is just a matter of time, but I think we can have an impact on that time and the quality of the film, just as we did with LOTR. 8)

From The One Ring.net today:

The BIG news has finally hit. A Ringer Spy who was recently in the New York offices of New Line Cinema has reported that they clearly saw 'The Hobbit' on the film schedule for 2007. Here's what the spy had to say:

"Please leave my email anonymous as I have some very exciting news to
report. I was in New Line's NY offices to discuss upcoming projects when I
clearly saw something very intriguing on a year planner. 'The Hobbit' was
clearly marked on what looked like July 2007. I couldn't exactly take a
moment to investigate the calendar with my audience in the room, but it
definitely said 'The Hobbit'. Lets hope this is a PJ project!"

I don't think I'd get too excited about a statement like this....

I clearly saw something very intriguing on a year planner. 'The Hobbit' was clearly marked on what looked like July 2007.

....because it could be nothing more than a date for a discussion/meeting.

I think TORn is pretty careful to NOT post an item they think could be bogus, so my guess is this was someone they have reason to believe.

Just received this info in an email from The One Ring.net ---



Source: Variety (via comingsoon.net): In a Variety article talking about MGM's move back into the tentpole business, the trade mentions a few highly-anticipated projects that are in the works:

'Over the next few years, MGM is planning to release half a dozen films,
some in the $150 million to $200 million-plus range. Studio is ready to
unveil such high-profile projects as "Terminator 4"; one or two installments of "The Hobbit," which Sloan hopes will be directed by Peter Jackson; and a sequel to "The Thomas Crown Affair" with Pierce Brosnan.


It has already announced a "Pink Panther" sequel and the next 007 pic "Bond 22," due out in November 2008. "Rocky Balboa" unspools in February.

The pics are all franchises that MGM owns the rights to through its
4,000-title library. The goal is to release two or three tentpoles a year,
all of which will be made with financial partners, including Wall Street
money or other studios.'

In the Sept. issue of Entertainment, there is a short page about what PJ is going to take on for future projects, speculating that MGM and New Line, if they can get it together, they both are sending signals that Peter Jackson would be the best choice to direct the HOBBIT. It basically didn't give anything new except that Peter Jackson would love to do it if asked.
So ........ we'll see! :o Things are sounding positive.

What if......By some strange stroke of utter genius...and in some weird AU..because I know this is absolutely not true and impossible...but wouldn't it be really outstanding if somewhere in the Weta archives of 3 foot 6 studios all of the raw footage of the Hobbit already existed just waiting for editing and voice overs..lol

It is almost as impossible to think how they will get the hobbiton set back from the farmer, close it off, move the sheep regrow the plants and gardens place the facing back on the buildings rebuild the bridge....wouldn't Pete just...for the fun of it say one after noon....OK Ian and Ian we are going to have a bit of fun.......

Title: Re:Let the Hobbit Happen!
Post by: overlithe on October 06, 2006, 05:47:14 pm

time will tell, but logic would dictate that it has to be one or the other..either all of the outdoor footage already exsists and all that Peter has to do is the set shots, or none of it does and everything will be recreated. Who knows weta is so tricksy and versatile they could probably recreate the whole thing virtually by now....though I doubt that would satisfy PJs eye for the "real".

It will be very interesting to see the final product whenever that may be. 8)

'The Hobbit' Petition: MGM Speaks!
Xoanon @ 8:58 pm EST

Lith writes: Here is a report on the deliveries of The Hobbit Petition to MGM and New Line on September 22nd. The petition, with the 39116 signatures accumlutated at the time of printing, was delivered to the studios along with a copy of MrCere's open letter to the studios. Though we have had no feedback at this time from New Line, I did receive this very cordial email from Theo Dumont of MGM today, with full permission to pass it along. It should hearten fans a good bit.

"Dear organizers of The Hobbit Petition:

We would like to give you the official statement from Rick Sands, COO of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. Feel free to pass this along to your members and affiliated web sites. Thank you and please see below:

"Peter Jackson's phenomenal success with The Lord of the Rings trilogy makes him the first and most ideal choice for directing The Hobbit," said MGM COO Rick Sands. "MGM would be thrilled to collaborate with the Academy Award-winning director on this MGM New Line Cinema production. And, I'm sure to the delight of the 50,000 filmgoers who have petitioned us in recent weeks, demanding we bring this film to fruition, we have had a few initial conversations about the project with Mr. Jackson's representatives."

Best regards,

Theo Dumont

[color=Navy]Well, 9 is such a significant number in LOTR, eh? But it was a stack 9 inches high, over 1400 pages, weighing (including the boxes it was packed in) nearly 20 pounds. :)

And it was great to have you and your hubby, our very own Bill the
Pony, along to share the load. ;)

BTW, the petition got a hefty mention in Variety! ;D

I don't think no one else could do it justice like Pj could. I do know that Lij :-* has done said he didn't want to play a Hobbit again. But I think he could be a very good Bilbo. I also believe all the original cast would be great in it.

I guess that's why they are 2 different ppl to me, cuz I can't really see them as the same one, but he should be in it, but I'm not sure he'd be a believeable Bilbo after seeinghim as Frodo :-*LOL, just me.

Hi there, everyone!

You probably already saw this info, but just in case...

This one is New Line's latest statement by Shaye....quite frankly I have NO idea what he is trying to say...but he sure makes New Line look stupid. If anyone can make some sense of this, I would be happy to hear it. ;)

And then here is Wingnut & PJ's response:

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/31211

Looking at the two statements objectively, PJ & Wingnut look pretty darn good. They make a good impression...in my humble opinion. They stick to the issue without insulting anyone....while Shaye is emotional, unclear and really just blabbling....about nothing. Whelp, it should be interesting to see what ends up happening.

I really think what will happen is PJ is gonna win his case bc their side keeps their head and doesn't blow up at anyone.

Just thought I would pop this link in here for those watching the "Hobbit war"....

http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=Cannes2007&jump=story&id=1061&articleid=VR1117965588&cs=1&query=The+Hobbit

Perhaps it is just wishful thinking...but it seems a little more hopeful. Possible setting between New Line and PJ. Here's hoping! :-*

Not all of the hobbits and casts will be in here...
The Hobbit is mostly talking about Bilbo. And how it started and everything.

I think? lol

PJ and Del Toro have recently said they'll bring as many of the Rings cast as will willingly return ... which should be pretty much everybody in one way, shape or form LOL!

PJ to be in the picture is a very good news to me at least,that remind me with Harry Potter and Chris Clombus(check spell)!
