To be honest, some films work really well in 3D, while others don't. I'm not sure The Hobbit would work in 3D, although it could make the epic backdrop that is New Zealand so much more vivid.

Maybe they'll release it in 2D, as well as 3D? Anybody know anything about this?

I've heard that Bill Bailey has auditioned for the role of Gloin! (If this has already been mentioned, I'm sorry! XD)

Considering how everything has gone from the beginning I think this project will never be released... Too many problems and obstacles on its way...

Greenlighted - finally!

The two prequels for Lord of the Rings have had it's problems, and still has a little bit, but now it's finally officially greenlighted, and the aim is to start the shoots in February.

The cast would seem to be so far:

Bilbo Baggins - Martin Freeman
Gandalf / Mithrandir - Sir Ian McKellen
Elrond - Hugo Weaving
King Thranduil of Mirkwood (Legolas's father) - David Tennant

Will be directed by: Sir Peter Jackson (confirmed)

More info here (quoted):

'The Hobbit' Gets Its Greenlight, With Jackson Directing (Updated)

?The Hobbit? is now greenlit and will begin principal photography in February 2011, MGM, Warner Brothers, and New Line, have confirmed.

As TheWrap reported exclusively earlier Friday (below), Peter Jackson will direct the two-part film.

?Exploring Tolkien?s Middle-earth goes way beyond a normal film-making experience? Jackson said in a statement, "It?s an all-immersive journey into a very special place of imagination, beauty and drama. We?re looking forward to re-entering this wondrous world with Gandalf and Bilbo -- and our friends at New Line Cinema, Warner Brothers and MGM."

'The Hobbit' has been greenlit and will start production in February, an individual close to the production has told TheWrap.

As TheWrap reported previously, Peter Jackson has agreed to direct the film in addition to producing and writing the two-part project.

In the agreement completed this week, Jackson's deal was finalized and MGM and Warner Brothers agreed to give the project its long-awaited greenlight.

The greenlight means that millions of global fans for the revered J.R.R. Tolkien property can look forward to a prequel to ?The Lord of the Rings,? which was one of the most successful movie franchises in movie history.

Jackson was already on board to write and produce "The Hobbit." But because of financial turmoil at MGM, which owns half of the franchise together with Warners' New Line Cinema, the project became one of the most torturous in Hollywood history.

Sets have already been built in New Zealand, and actors - including Sir Ian McKellan - have been on hold for months.

However, the individual said that labor issues related to the production have still not been resolved, and negotiations will continue with the Screen Actors Guild. The union flap involves whether the production would use Screen Actors Guild members or not.

About $30 million has already been spent on the project, the first part of which is scheduled to hit theaters Dec. 19, 2012.

But Warner Brothers was wary about moving ahead at the risk that an agreement with MGM may not hold up over time.

At MGM, the decision about greenlighting ?The Hobbit,? a $400 million, back-to-back production of two films, has been hanging between CEO Stephen Cooper, owners-in-waiting Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum of Spyglass Productions and the creditors committee at MGM.

Spyglass has signed a letter of intent to give the production company 4-5 percent ownership of MGM in exchange for taking over the company?s management. That deal would entail a prepackaged bankruptcy, under the supervision of the judge and with the accord of the studio?s debtors and investors.

But just this week, takeover king Carl Icahn threw his weight behind an alternate plan, to have Lionsgate merge with MGM instead.

I don't think he's able to do it! I read somewhere that he was offered the part, and was really really keen on doing it, but his schedule (filming things like Sherlock) was too full to accomodate The Hobbit... It may have changed, but I'm not sure.

OMH! (Oh my Hobbit! Yes, I am aware that I am incredibly sad!) THIS WOULD MAKE MY LIFE! I'm a HUGE David Tennant fan - this would be EPIC!

Ohmygosh.

It was thought so by the tabloids, but when he spoke himself, it turned out that he was still hopeful for this role and the scheduling might have a chance. And now the new rumours have it that he's already signed for the movie.

Oh, okay. Yeah, it is great! Especially since it worked. I'm so happy. NZ is definitely the place for Middle Earth to be. ^_^

Oh yes please - let Martin Freeman be able to do the film!

I've recently been watching the orginal Brit version of The Office, and was thinking to myself how GREAT he'd be as a hobbit, especially Bilbo.

He's just got that 'cute' (as opposed to goodlooking) roundish face, and the right build... and a certain poker-faced cheekiness that'd suit the role.   In some ways he reminds me a bit of Dom Monaghan.

It'd also make me a happy girl if that's true about David Tennant.

I also think he will be a perfect Bilbo; if the movie is finally shot.

I'm glad it's finally getting going It's wonderful. I've never heard of most of those people... other than the ones from LOTR, lol. It's strange. So Ian McKellen hasn't signed yet... But Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett, and Hugo Weaving have for sure?
