There is a Hobbit movie thread that has been around for almost three years:

It would be awesome if they ended up having to rerender a bunch of stuff from the SW prequels, after Lucas was going nuts saying how awesome it was to film with digital cameras.

I'm not Luddite, but that would really be the ultimate irony... to see that they unreasonably hampered themselves and had to go back just a decade later and fix it.


(Then again, "going back and fixing it" is what Lucas does. Apparently more satisfying -- creatively and financially -- then just doing your best and moving on.)

Not only model, they built near-to-scale sections of the ship for the sinking scenes. Titanic and The Abyss had the most ernomous physical sets built, even crazier when built inside a giant tank. Only Jim can do that (yeah, we're buddies ).
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen Awesome!

And it seems that is what CAMERON just did with TITANIC:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ris...-poster-261802

"There's a whole generation that's never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen," Cameron said. "And this will be Titanic as you've never seen it before, digitally remastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."
it will take ages to RE - EDIT the whole trilogy

Default Maybe three Hobbit Films!

Quoted from the digital bits yesteday. There may be three hobbit films!


In other news today, Lord of the Rings fans have something to be excited about. Director Peter Jackson has officially confirmed on his Facebook page that his plans for The Hobbit have gone from two films (A Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again) to THREE! It seems there's a ton of extra material found in The Appendices of Tolkien's book version of Return of the King that pertain to and expand the story of The Hobbit, so he wants to film as much of it as he can. Okay, I'm in. It sounds like the decision was motivated by the filmmakers' desire to tell more of the story and not just money, so I'll trust that they'll get it right.
