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.

I'm going to go & see it, but I can't say I'm looking forward to it that much. The reviews have all been quite muted, saying the extra frame stuff is pretty poor & the plot is just too small to stretch over three films; or at least the first film doesn't have enough material in it. It doesn't sound that good.
