Jackson takes time out from Middle-earth

Eagle-eyed TORn staffer Anwyn points out the comment at the end of the story: “Jackson also revealed he had hoped to bring JRR Tolkien’s other classic book The Hobbit to the big screen, but the film rights are tied up in a “complex” arrangement involving a rival Hollywood studio.” Interesting!
