Revivalmania. You may have to scroll down, as TORn doesn’t have permalinks. Xoanon got an email:

Please leave my email anonymous as I have some very exciting news to report. I was in New Line’s NY offices to discuss upcoming projects when I clearly saw something very intriguing on a year planner. ‘The Hobbit’ was clearly marked on what looked like July 2007. I couldn’t exactly take a moment to investigate the calendar with my audience in the room, but it definitely said ‘The Hobbit’.

I’m interested, though Ian Holm and Ian McKellen sure aren’t getting any younger. But hey, a little WETA magic and … shazam. Would it play without those two? Yes. Would it play well? Dicey.

  1. The thing that bothers me most about movies based on books (other then that they so rarely do them justice) is that people who’re too lazy to read the books (“Reading is so boring. It’s such a waste of time!”) think the movies are an acceptable and accurate substitute. The only reason I keep going to the Harry Potter movies is to get ammunition to refute that theory. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been conversing about a good book with someone and heard someone else say, “Oh yeah, I know about that. I saw the movie. Wasn’t it great?”
