Last week we brought you the news that director Peter Jackson was interested in shooting additional footage for his two part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and was even contemplating the possibly of extending the tale into a third film.

Jackson sourced from Tolkien’s extensive appendicles in addition to the original novel to fill out the story and feels that there is more than enough there to warrant shooting additional material.
THR is now reporting that Jackson is indeed moving forward with development on a third film saying that “Warner Bros., Jackson, producer Fran Walsh and writer-producer Philippa Boyens” went into active negotiations following their Comic-Con panel and screening.

The production is in the midst of trying to work out schedules for the extensive cast as they try and ascertain whether the additional shoots are feasible and/or financially advisable.

We will keep you updated as details emerge.

Would you like to see a third “Hobbit” film?

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens in AMC theaters on December 14th, 2012.

"The Hobbit: There and Back Again" opens a year later on December 13th, 2013.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
