The Hobbit possibly close to a green light, but fire at studio

by on Oct.02, 2010, under Movies

The LA Times is reporting that Warner Bros./New Line and MGM are very close to giving the green light for production of The Hobbit, having resolved or nearly resolved remaining rights issues and finalized the necessary deals. If production starts by the 1st quarter of next year, then they could still hit their target of the first movie’s release for the 2012 holiday season, with the second a year later.

But now a fire apparently broke out at Portsmouth Miniatures Studio, one of the stage locations where The Hobbit was to be filmed. The cause of the fire is under investigation and the extent of damage is unknown.
