So.. now its being reported by the L.A. Times that the Hobbit is perhaps only days from being green lit, that all the kerfluffle's with the actors unions, the Tolkien estate and everyone else in the the world are close to being sorted. If this is true, it would allow the movie to go into production on schedule in January, and still make its projected December 2012 release date.
However, the New York Times, as usual, brings the bad news.. and is reporting that it will more than likely be shot in 3D...
So I guess that means no Midnight show for me, since I'm officially refraining from spending my money on any movie shot in, or converted to 3D.
