Peter Jackson already keen to shoot another Hobbit Movie


Distinguished Member
In news that will probably not surprise anyone, Peter Jackson confirmed that he is keen to explore the possibility of making another film set in Middle Earth.

"We have got incredible source material with the appendices," says Jackson. "There’s the novel, but then we also have the rights to use the 125 pages of additional notes where Tolkien expanded the world of The Hobbit. I've been talking to the studio about other things that we haven’t been able to shoot and seeing if we could possibly persuade them to do a few more weeks of shooting."

"We’d probably need more than a few weeks, actually, next year," he continues. "The discussions are pretty early, so there isn’t anything to report, but there are other parts of the story that we’d like to tell, that we haven’t had the chance to tell yet. We’re just trying to have those conversations with the studio, at the moment."


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in the UK on 14 December 2012.
