First of all, sorry for not posting much lately. I’ve just been very busy at work and a little under the weather at home.
Anyway, tonight I stumbled across this rumor which suggests that Peter Jackson and trying to persuade Guillermo del Toro to go along with Peter directing a third Hobbit film, one that supposedly bridges the stories between the books (covering material contained in the LoTR appendices).
I don’t know whether to believe the rumor or not. It’s just as likely to be debunked within a day or two as to be confirmed in a month or six.
Keep an eye on Xenite’s Hobbit Movies News site for more information — it may show up in the headlines there before I can share it here.
