| I don't believe it was Jackson's call. Warner Bros or New Line probably pushed for it. Of course by push, I do mean push a few million more dollars toward Jackson. I just hope they find ways to fill in the time. There's still the story when Gandalf goes to Dol Guldur that's not really fully shown in the Hobbit. That could be half of the second movie the way Jackson's team writes. |
| Right now Peter Jackson's Hobbit movie is split into two films (The Hobbit: There and Back Again and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) but if Jackson has his way there might be three Hobbit movies total. Right now the director is in discussions with the studio getting the OK to shoot more footage either for another movie, or just a massive extended edition DVD. |
Peter Jackson has been talking about additional scenes and a potential third film for awhile. So, I'd say it his more him than New Line. Of course, they aren't going to say 'Peter, we don't think a third film of what is going to be a $1 billion + film is financially viable and therefore, insist you don't consider it'
And it looks like it will be filled with sh*t from the LOTR appendices. Which, quite frankly, should have been in LOTR.
I'm not gonna lie, after 10 years I don't think the LOTR films are that good. I am annoyed that they pushed Gollum's transformation to the beginning of RTotK and ignored what happened in the Shire after they got home. I also am pissed Tom Bombadil wasn't included, sorry TEoS.
Doesn't matter in 10 years they will remake all 6? films anyway.
