Whether you are surprised or it confirmed your belief all along, word has come down that production of The Hobbit will remain in New Zealand. The NZ government has reached an agreement with Warner Bros. on broadening the goverment’s incentive program, which could net WB an extra US$15 million in rebates, as well as begin the legislative process to better define the position of actors and other workers (which could mean the end to the unionization process, to the chagrin of the existing unions), and a long-term marketing partnership.
