The Hobbit On Hold Indefinitely

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

It looks like the drama continues with the upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit.

Even though it was just announced that filming was going to start in November, director Guillermo Del Toro has confirmed that the project has been put on hold indefinitely because of complicated negotiations over the future of the MGM movie studio.

Producer Peter Jackson has said in the past "It's not really been delayed, because we've never announced the date," however, Del Toro admits that pre-production had already started.

He adds:

"We have designed all the creatures. We've designed the sets and the wardrobe. We have done animatics and planned battle sequences. We are very, very prepared for when it is finally triggered. It's not greenlit. That's categorical. We've been caught in a very tangled negotiation. There cannot be any start dates until the MGM situation gets resolved. They do hold a considerable portion of the rights."

That sucks! We were really looking forward to this one! Let's hope the drama doesn't continue into production!

The Hobbit Officially Greenlit! To Shoot In November!

Well it's about effing time!

After more behind-the-scenes drama than a night out with Lindsanity LOLhan, the long-awaited prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit, has been greenlit and pre-production is underway!

The tentative plan is to start filming in November, and sources close to the production are claiming:

"The usual 3D technical suspects have been rounded up…so I would bank on it."

Excellent!

We just hope that the snags and complications don't follow the filmmakers into production!

This one has the potential to be truly great!!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a potentially 3D version of The Hobbit??

It's A Done Deal! The Hangover 2 Gets The Gang Back Together - For A Price!

It's official!

The Hangover 2 is happening, and all the leads are returning - for considerably more money than what they made for the original!

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis have all made deals that will secure each of them $5 million against 4% of first dollar gross!

WOW!

Apparently, because Warner Bro's didn't anticipate the original's success OR have faith in director Todd Phillips' choices for leads, they chose not to contractually obligate the funnymen for a sequel OR pay them very well.

After the movie's monster success, the actors and their legal team made sure they would get compensated accordingly, and refused to sign on until they negotiated an acceptable deal!

Good for them!! They're at least half the reason the first did so well!

Production is set to start in October, and the missing groom from the original, Justin Bartha, is also slated to return, although it's unclear what he's making!

We're psyched! The original was HIGHlarious, hopefully they won't kill it with a sequel!

What do U think?? Do U want to see The Hangover 2??

If anyone can pull this off, it's her!

Ashley Tisdale is prepping for a High School Musical spin-off centered around her character, Sharpay Evans, in the new Disney flick Broadway Bound!

We wonder what kind of shenanigans that little diva is going to get herself into!! Or if any of her HSM alum are going to show up for the dramz!

We'll take anyone except WhatsHerFace!

Production for the tele-flick starts June 1st in Toronto!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a Sharpay spin-off??

WTF? Robin Hood Snags Premiere Spot At Cannes!

robin-hood-poster-jb.jpg

If this is the best opener they could get than we're scared as shiz for the rest of the line-up!!

Ridley Scott's SHITEOUS-looking Robin Hood is set to be the first movie screened at this year's Cannes Film Festival, which starts up May 12th!

As everyone probably knows, the movie went through some serious dramz in pre-production, which included massive script re-writes, star Russell Crowe being forced into fat camp, and Sluttyienna Miller being replaced by Cate Blanchett!!

What a mess!! Not even the trailer could make it look watchable!!

Robin Hood opens worldwide May 14th.

What do U think?? Do U want to see Robin Hood?
