Sean has spoken of his own ideas on who should direct "The Hobbit", and he doesn't mince words! LOL

Thanks Rach, that made for an interesting read. Deep down we all know Sean is right

We certainly do, and I think New Line has figured this out finally, as well. They see the financial writing on the wall and realize, I think, that THEY NEED PJ!

Movie studios aren't doing so well these days that they can afford to take the kind of chance that a hobbit film woould be without him, when doing it WITH him would be pretty much a guaranted success!

Hugs,
Rach

I agree Rach they would be foolish NOT to let PJ direct it, so lets all pray and cross our fingers that he does and soon

Ohh... VERY good! There is definately light at the end of this tunnel, as long as no party-pooper steps on the match.

BTW, I saw a trailer for "The Golden Compass" when I saw TFS yesterday. NL is tying this movie to LOTr so blantantly that someone unfamiliar with the world is going to think it IS a Tolkien film! The trailer opened "In 2001, NL opened the door to Middle earth," then proceeds to ad the new movie. It sounds like this movie is ALSO set in Tolkien's world!

I found it slightly annoying, but I guess you can't blame them.

Hugs,
Rach

It is funny you say that because I thought the same thing. Although The Golden Compass seems a little odd. Tolkien always had good and evil very easily identified and the Golden Compass really seems to blur the lines a bit...especially calling the souls of those living in the parallel world Daemons (pronounced demons). Somehow I don't think Tolkien would have approved of this....but, of course, that is just my opinion

He probably wouldn't have, but then, there's a LOT out there in LOTR fandom today he would hate. He hated it when he was alive and wasn't afraid to say he hated it.

I just thought the ad was misleading. People will go to the film expecting something by Tolkien.

This could effect "The Hobbit" negatively when it DOES premiere.

Rach

I hope it doesnt affect the hobbit I want lots of people to go and see it and I myself havent seen any clips of the golden compass, was it also filmed in New Zealand, as most newer films after lotr are ie narnia, black sheep..

I saw that trailer Rach and I have to say, at first when it said "In 2001, NL opened the door to Middle-Earth" I thought 'is this The Hobbit?' and they are just cashing in on the success of LOTR, which I don't agree with.  I haven't seen the film so I can't say anything about it, but misleading people (even if only for a few seconds, and even if it wasn't intentional) doesn't show the greatest confidence in The Golden Compass does it?

Hey there, Elizabeth! You can see the trailer here http://www.goldencompassmovie.com/  I am not particularily thrilled about this movie...but have to admit that they have one heck of a website to promote it.

Hopefully, it won't affect the success of The Hobbit when it comes out, but I don't think it really would. Tolkien has a HUGE group of fans who wouldn't be fazed by other movie publicity. At least, that's what I think.

Thanks Culpie, sorry guys but I think it looks great and want to see it when it comes out I can see slight resemblacnce to lotr in that the girl has to take the golden compass and people come to help her. Its got Nicole Kidman in I like her as an actress.

I don't think it will effect the success of The Hobbit, especially now that Sam Raimi has said he would back out of the project if PJ is willing to come back into it.  I think it's nice of him, but also smart.

Rach
