Peter Jackson to make 'The Hobbit' as feud settled

LOS ANGELES (AFP) Oscar-winning "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson has settled a bitter feud with Hollywood studio New Line and will make two films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit," a statement said Tuesday.

The groundbreaking New Zealand director, whose trio of "Lord of the Rings" fantasy films have grossed more than three billion dollars since 2001, had ruled himself out of a return to Middle Earth earlier this year.

Jackson's decision came after he threatened to sue New Line in a row over royalties from the "Lord of the Rings", leading studio chief Bob Shaye to declare that the New Zealander would "never" make "The Hobbit."

However a joint statement from Jackson, New Line, and MGM on Tuesday said the legal feud had been settled and that Jackson and professional partner Fran Walsh would serve as executive producers on the two films.

There was no mention in the statement of whether Jackson would serve as director on the two films.

As with the "Lord of the Rings," the movies will be shot simultaneously before being released separately. Principal photography was likely to begin in 2009 before the release of the films in 2010 and 2011.

"I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us, so that we may begin a new chapter with our old friends at New Line," Jackson said. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth."

New Line co-chairman and co-chief Shaye expressed delight that Jackson and Walsh will be overseeing "The Hobbit."

"We are very pleased we have been able to resolve our differences, and that Peter and Fran will be actively and creatively involved with 'The Hobbit' movies," Shaye said.

"We know they will bring the same passion, care and talent to these films that they so ably accomplished with 'The Lord of the Rings' Trilogy."

Jackson's three-part adaptation of the "The Lord of the Rings" made history when its final installment "The Return of the King" won the best picture Oscar in 2004, the first time ever that a fantasy film won the award.

"The Return of the King" won a total of 11 Oscars -- including best director for Jackson. The trilogy was also unique because it was filmed simultaneously on location in New Zealand, a risky strategy which could have been a costly failure had the first film in the franchise been unsuccessful.

"The Hobbit" is set in Middle Earth and is generally regarded as a prelude to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

The book tells the story of how the hobbit Bilbo Baggins sets off on a quest accompanied by 13 dwarves and Gandalf the wizard to confront the dragon, Smaug, who has accumulated a massive treasure trove inside the Lonely Mountain.

The adventures include the tale of how Bilbo takes possession of the magic ring at the center of the later "Lord of the Rings" books, when he discovers it by chance in Gollum's lair.

An animated television film of "The Hobbit" was released in the United States in 1977, and included veteran director John Huston providing the voice for Gandalf.

Ik zal toch pas content zijn als ik weet wie effectief gaat regisseren. In het allerbeste geval Jackson zelf uiteraard, maar ergens lijkt me dat niet zo waarschijnlijk. Het lijkt me alsof New Line uiteindelijk alleen maar akkoord gaf op voorwaarde dat Jackson zich beperkt moeit en in de eerste plaats zijn faciliteiten en expertise ter beschikking stelt. Ik vraag me dan ook meteen af hoe content PJ mag zijn met dit contract - mocht het over zulk een invulling beschikken.

Nu voor hetzelfde geld is hij het wl, wat ik schitterend zou vinden. Een regisseur die Jackson's visie en stijl kan doorzetten vind ik ook al prima. Zo lang het maar geen wise-guy wordt die vindt dat het knal anders moet. Twee films klinkt trouwens nice

Hmmm, als ze slim zijn laten ze het Jackson wel doen. Alleen al uit commercieel oogpunt "From the director of LotR". Dat ding verkoopt zichzelf. Ik weet trouwens ook niet of ze twee film van drie uur uit 'The Hobbit' gaan kunnen persen. Gok eerder op twee films van een twee uur.

De sequel zou trouwens The Hobbit linken met Lord of the Rings, kans is dus groot dat er zeer veel materiaal van de Appendices tussen zit.

Idd, 2 keer 3 uur gaat zelfs een beetje krap zijn. Peter Jackson heeft altijd doen uitschijnen dat hij met The Hobbit resoluut het pad van een prequel op Lord of the Rings zou kiezen, niet zozeer een inleiding op Midden Aarde. Heel wat dingen uit de trilogie zouden dan extra belicht kunnen worden.

Seth Rogen to star in 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno'

Canadian actor Seth Rogen is all set to play the lead role of 'Zack' in writer-director Kevin Smith's new flick 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno'.

Elizabeth Banks, who earlier appeared with the 25-year old actor in 'The 40-year old Virgin', will play the female lead as Miri in the new film, reports Variety.

The story of the film revolves around two lifelong platonic friends who are deep in debt and enlist the help of their friends to make a porn pic for some quick moolah.

Een Bondfilm zonder actie en zelfs zonder spionage?

Een deel voor de Misty Mountains dat eindigt met het vinden van de ring, en een deel erna dat eindigt met de gigantische veldslag rond The Lonely Mountain.

Da's wat mij op het eerste zicht mogelijk lijkt.

Edit: nee, het eerste deel zou dan tekort zijn. Misschien dat ze het kunnen verlengen met de verdrijving van Sauron uit Mirkwood.

Dat zou pas een shocker zijn. Neen, ze gaan dat verhaal uiteraard nog bewerken. Anderzijds is het ergens wel een logische (en goede) keuze om opnieuw wat meer aandacht te besteden aan Bond als mens. De actiemens in Bond kennen we al, dat verrast toch minder en minder. Maar Bond die zichzelf bloot geeft, daar was iedereen wel zot van
