The Hobbit Delayed Until 2012

We wants the precious now!

But it looks like we’re not going to get it till at least 2012. The forthcoming Hobbit movie has run into yet more delays according to Variety.

Head of New Line David Horn said that they’re looking at “fourth quarter 2012 release” which is a long way from the originally promised 2011 date we were given some time ago.

The studio are still waiting for the second script, penned by Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson, to be finished before cracking on with filming. The expected long shoot time of 14 months is making a 2011 release date extremely unlikely.

And as the planned two films are being funded by MGM, which is currently undergoing restructuring, that’s likely to be a contributing factor to the delay.

We’d rather they took their time and got it right, rather than rushed it out. Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett, Viggo Mortensen and Sir Ian McKellen are expected to reprise their roles and as it’s being directed by Guillermo “Pan’s Labyrinth” Del Torro, it’s in good hands.
