Thanks to Ringer Pasi for sending us this link to a LA Times blog video feature from last night’s Grammys. In the clip, Dominic Monaghan (Merry), talks about the past year and future products. At around the :44 second mark, he is asked about ‘The Hobbit’ films:

The British actor will be noticeably absent in Peter Jackson’s return to Middle-earth when the director takes on “The Hobbit,” but he’s dealing with it in stride: “I’m bummed in a nice way.” He added that he didn’t rule out working with the director in the future.

    There is a scene in Unfinished Tales where Frodo has the Red Book while talking with Gandalf after the war of the Ring. They talk about Bilbo, which is probably the movie scene they’re going to show. But rest of the hobbits are also in that written scene. Oh well.

    • Probably not – they aren’t allowed to film things that appear in other books (and not in The Hobbit) due to filming rights restrictions. Arwen only appears in LOTR (movie) because she’s in the appendices, for instance.

      As far as I know, there are only film rights for Hobbit and LOTR, and nothing else.
