Peter Jackson has embarked on an unexpected journey indeed, as the filmmaker has revealed that his two-part adaptation of “The Hobbit” has now officially added a third movie.
In a message posted on his Facebook account, Jackson confirmed the rumors that a third “Hobbit” movie is indeed in the offing, with Variety’s Josh Dickey asserting that the film will hit theaters in summer 2014 — a departure from the planned December 2013 and 2014 releases for the first two “Hobbit” adventures. A more specific release date is not currently known.
Could be a great idea, could be a mistake. In the absence of any further information, I must give the benefit of the doubt to Peter Jackson.
All that said, I am really looking forward to these movies.
