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??

Was Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

Now, the title belongs to Tim Burton and his adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

As of this morning, Alice surpassed the Hobbits by 3 million dollars, reaching an astounding $928.9 million at the box-office worldwide.

And it's all thanks to Johnny Depp. (And the surge of IMAX theaters and 3D movies, no doubt.)

Congrats!

King's The Dark Tower Books Headed For The Big Screen!

Wow! This came together VERY quickly!

Stephen King's hugely successful The Dark Tower books will be getting not only the film treatment, but may also become a TV series!

King is apparently in very serious discussions to adapt his seven edition fantasy series with Akiva Goldsman of Weed Road, as well as Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. The team, who worked together on A Beautiful Mind, are hoping to re-work this story into a cohesive screen trilogy in the vein of Lord of the Rings.

Goldsman is apparently working on the script, with Howard set to direct.

Sounds like it has the potential to be really cool!

We're not too familiar with the books, but we know people are OBSESSED with them, so what do U think??

Are U happy The Dark Tower books are becoming movies, or should they just be left alone??
