You’ve got to be kidding me? After all that bitching The Hobbit, set to be released in 2012 will remain in New Zealand for the duration of its filming, the country’s prime minister has confirmed.The announcement follows two days of talks with Hollywood executives over whether the Lord of the Rings prequels should be shot in the country.
Well now that that’s settled maybe this thing can get going! All in all, this is probably a good thing. New Zealand is the perfect place to film this thing and that’s where it should stay; since this is where the film is destined to take place. There were SO many road blocks, Jackson wasn’t sure if he was gonna even direct this thing, a fire on set and then of course the location problems. I’m thinking now that a lot of the these bullshit logistics are out of the way Jackson can now move on and make a good film. The Lord of the Rings was quite the movie going experience and I hope to see that again with the Hobbit.
