Hobbit ‘mockbuster’ about to film

June 24, 2012 at 10:02 pm by Demosthenes  - 

A B-grade movie about hobbits is set to begin shooting in July — and could be out on DVD before Peter Jackson’s much-anticipated version debuts in December.

The LA Times reported a production house called The Asylum was shooting the film. Called Age of the Hobbits, it has nothing to do with Peter Jackson or Weta Workshop.

Few details about the film’s plot or cast are available, but a description on Netflix called it a “reimagined version of JRR Tolkien’s mythical universe”.

We wonder if Saul Zaentz has heard the news yet.

    The Asylum might be able to get away with this under the guise of parody, but they might have bitten off more than they can chew this time if the Tolkien Estate’s and/or Warner Bros.’ lawyers get involved.

    This is what the Asylum does. They release mock-offs of the real movies for super-low budgets all the time. A few of their movies are actually entertaining but most just suck.

    I’d love to see another depiction 😉
