My brother-in-law (& my sister) moved to Matamata to work on the Hobbiton set in April this year (for 6 months). They've already moved on (or are due to right now, in October) to Wellington (Miramir, where all the studios are). So my guess is that filming is (or was) very much intended to go ahead in NZ early next year...

To be fair, though, Tolkien himself described LotR as a trilogy.

"but New Zealand's place as home to Middle-Earth remains uncertain as the dispute between the Actors Equity union and the show's producers rumbles on."

So they've got the green light to make it, but nowhere to film. There's still plenty that could go wrong!

Well, that's something to genuinely look forward to; particularly more Silmarillion detail! As you've commented before; quite a lot has come to light since 1993 --& clearly there was much compression in the first edition in any case. At least two years you reckon? Still with (further) assistance from Doug? --or under your own byeline only (--or co-authoring with Christina)? Any radical format ideas, or just bringing up to date?

As for jackson’s "incomparable story-telling" - I can't wait for more dwarf-tossing jokes and wizard fights.
