After more production delays and complications than we can count, The Hobbit is expected to begin principal photography on Monday, March 21st!
According to director Peter Jackson:
"Despite some delays we are fully back on track and very excited to get started."
And the film's production company, 3Foot7 Ltd. elaborates:
"This date has been chosen following practical considerations of the filming schedule requirements, actor availability and the NZ seasons. Shooting will take place at Stone Street Studios in Miramar and on location around New Zealand."
Our fingers are crossed that no more freak accidents or bull shiz gets in the way, and production kicks off without a hitch!
But with their track record, we'll admit that we're more than a little nervous!
Here's hoping, guys!
