    Discussion on upcoming The Hobbit Movie, Whered it go?

    I cant remember if it was in here or somewhere else, but I remember reading a sort of dev chat between the producers of the new The Hobbit movie coming in a couple years.

    After some search I have yet to find it. Did its thread get deleted? If so, where can I find it again? If not, Can someone direct to the thread it exists in? A friend of mine is a total tolkien fan and would love it if I could find it for her, as she (and I ) are both eagerly awaiting said movie.

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: Btw, its not this http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.p...ighlight=Smaug Found that and thought I had lucked out, but Its not the same thread... *sigh*

    I'm pretty sure it got deleted with the rest of the threads in the forum pruning.

    I just want Brian Cox to play Thorin and I don't want Guillermo DelToro to make it into a horror film (which I think he's confirmed he won't, he'll just keep it 'intense').

    Actually, I am hopeful that Del Toro will do a good job. This is significant because I was a raging anti-PJ purist during the making of LOTR. (Still am, too.) The interviews with Del Toro that I have read sound promising. At the very least, I think he really gets it far more than PJ ever did.

    I was(and still am) a bit... err well, not sure on how it will turn out. I definitely have higher expectations now, as Guilermo said it won't be a horror movie. Am very excited though, hopefully he'll do 10x better than PJ, and PJ did good imo. (Except on the lore-breaks/twists)

    We'll see =D

    I like to keep my expectations low. I haven't seen Watchmen yet but I'm basically expecting a glorified porno so it can only, hopefully, exceed those expectations. At this point , for The Hobbit, I'm expecting a very dark version of an otherwise whimsical and exciting tale. I don't think it will be bad and I'm sure I'll be the first in line, it's just that films can rarely capture the feel and produce the emotions of a book.

    Even though I saw the LotR films before I read them (except Fellowship) the movies just can't compare.

    I saw Watchmen yesterday. Went in with low expectations...and thought it was pretty cool. Low expectations ftw!

    Oops, I may be raising your expectations now. Ok, it was terrible. Putrid, even.

    As for The Hobbit, I'm torn. On the one hand, Del Toro is great, and he seems to say all the right things about it. On the other hand...what a difficult story to make into a successful film.
