Guillermo chimes in with MGM / Hobbit delays

April 3, 2010 at 9:56 pm by MrCere  - 

TheOneRing.net message board member (and director of films that win like – you know – Academy Awards) Guillermo del Toro chimed in today to elaborate a bit on the seemingly eternal pre-pre-production state of a pair of “Hobbit” films and the MGM situation.

Chatting up the regulars he said:

But know these facts:

-NO delays have been caused by “discussing” or “adapting” 3-D.
-Can’t close deals with actors without a green light.
-Can’t give a green light to the project when one of the studios is going through a “to be or not to be” auction moment.

For good or bad this project has demanded for so much to be solved before it gets going. So, the Phil Connors syndrome is met with great empathy.

Yep, he referenced the “Groundhog Day” movie while confirming and elaborating on this report. The MGM situation and the two “Hobbit” films’ fate are bound together like Frodo, Gollum and soul-stealing jewelry. (We are hoping they avoid the whole volcano thing though.)
