‘The Hobbit’ Part 2 May Be Split Into 2 Films To Make ‘The Hobbit’ Part 2 And 3.
Pace and craft. And remember you are making the films in the 21st century. PACE AND CRAFT.
While working the press line at SDCC Jackson was asked if he was thinking of splitting the second movie into two parts, this was his response:
Well, we’ve been certainly talking to the studio about some of the material we can’t film. And we’ve been asking them if we can do a bit more filming next year. Which I don’t know what would come of that, whether that would be extended additions or not. But those discussions are on going… I’d like to shoot a bunch more material that we can’t shoot. There’s so much good stuff in the appendices that we haven’t been able to squeeze into these movies. That’s a discussion that we’re having, yeah.
