Re: Hobbit might be split into THREE movies now. Sigh

I just read this quote on J.R.R. Tolkien's Hobbit from Philippa Boyens

"Great actors come to you for the material and if you give them very slight material, you're just not going to get them. We wanted to write for these great actors"

http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2012/d ... ted-journey-peter-jackson

Why make the film at all if you think so little of the source material?

I would have thought that you could attract great actors by producing a film of, arguably, the most successful children's novel, The Hobbit.
