Fans of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit movie are going to have to wait a little longer. According to Peter Jackson, filming will now begin towards the middle of 2010.
â€œWeâ€™re currently working on the second script which we hope to have completed by the end of this year or beginning of next. When the scripts are completed, we can begin with the exact calculation of the necessary budget. We hope to start filming in the middle of next year. However, weâ€™ve received no green light from the studio yet.â€
Perhaps MGM’s money problems will affect The Hobbit after all.With the auctioning off of assets just around the corner, Jackson and company are going to feel the budget pinch on this movie greater than they ones encountered during Lord of the Rings.Â If things do not end well for MGM, the fate of the Hobbit could be up in the air once more.
