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!!!

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:

And thanks, once again, for your support.

Someone told me they tried to sign the petition today, but it's not working.  Is it closed to more signatures?  I tried to go there again  to see what she meant and there's a message saying  "not supported."

Nope...neither link works.  There's still a message that the site is "not supported" when you try to vote.

That's odd...  I just did a test run with my own signature, took it as far as the preview and everything worked.  I'll get some of my friends to test it as well, and if they also have trouble, I'll contact the petitiononline folks to get that fixed.

Hang in there, folks, and keep trying.

Edit:  Some friends tried signing the petition today and had no trouble.  Not sure why anyone here is having trouble, but please, if you can't sign via the link I provided, go to the Let the Hobbit Happen page and access the petition via the link there.  Perhaps you can sign that way.

Ohmygosh! I have heard about all this. My second cousin's friend work in the film  industry and she told us about this long before it came out into the world. I am so glad that so many people know about it at this time! I really want to make this thing happen. And for everyone else who agrees, stand up and halla!

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!

What do you mean, Marit?  Of course I am very glad you signed earlier, but the petition is still fully functional.  Just now I checked and the signature count stands at 33,879.

For those of you who have not yet signed, here's the link. 
http://www.petitiononline.com/hobfilm/petition.html

If someone tries to sign and has a problem, please PM me and I will contact the petitiononline folks and have any problems resolved.

Thanks to all who have signed thus far, and please keep spreading the word!

I just signed.

Not bad! And these are only the signatures of people who KNOW about the petition... imagine how many more if everyone knew...

Thank you, seven.  Yep, been trying to get the word out since ROTK swept the Oscars.  Every signature helps.  Spread the word!
