Yes! Natupad din ang matagal ko nang pinapanalangin… magkakaroon na din sa wakas ng movie remake ng J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit“!
1977 pa kasi yung huling pelikula version nito – done in animation – by Rankin-Bass and targeted towards very young kids (which didn’t stop older fans from watching. hehehe…)
Kita naman ang ebidensiya, di ba? Sobrang kyut ng portrayal kay Bilbo noon… very much unlike Peter Jackson’s version in the LOTR trilogy. Not even a smidgen of a hint of Bilbo’s darker side!
Pero ‘di bale… at least we can be sure that New Line Cinema and Peter Jackson will put things to right and work their old magic again in this latest version!
Two-part film daw yung gagawin (which means fewer “cutting” of events) with a budget of $150 million per… asteeg!
They hope to start filming by 2009 and are targeting a 2010 and 2011 playdate… malapit na!
Yun lang, hindi na si Peter Jackson ang magdi-direct 😦 Pero ok lang kasi si Sam Raimi (Spider Man) naman ang nababalitang papalit sa kanya.
