Upon noticing this news tweet a short time ago, my initial reaction was that it must be someone's idea of a joke but quickly and sadly realized it is the truth. Filming of The Hobbit is expected to be somewhat delayed while director Jackson recovers from surgery. Our best wishes for his speedy recovery..

A challenge for RH/RA fan vidders:
Hesitated to post the following, but then she stated her favorite male character in the Robin Hood series is Guy of Gisborne - thought to myself "aha! a female of discriminating taste - same as all of us":)Laurissy’s Answers to the above challenge:
Thank you Musa for finding this interesting interview with the casting director for The Hobbit:http://www.iftn.ie/news/?act1=record&only=1&aid=73&rid=4283633&tpl=archnews&force=1
NZ Headline: Hmmm…birth rate has currently jumped in NZ - traced back to Apr 2010. Could it possibly have leaked out in Apr that RA might win a major role in TH? Would be interested in seeing how many copies of North and South were sold at that time;) The clues tell all *winks*...
It's fortunate that there are so many talented RA supporters to help keep the long Hobbit wait interesting
Locals hush as Hobbit date setLast updated 10:51 17/01/2011
--The pitter patter of hairy feet is getting louder in Matamata with The Hobbit to start filming next month.
--Wellywood insiders have told the Dominion Post that Valentine's Day – February 14 – is when cameras will start rolling on the two films.
--Hobbiton Movie Set & Farm Tours manager Russell Alexander was tight-lipped today--"I've got meetings coming up but I'm bound by confidentiality and I can't talk, and I can't say what I do know."
--Matamata-Piako Mayor Hugh Vercoe said the long-term economic benefits for the district outweighed the immediate economic impact of production. Unlike the set built for the Lord of the Rings films which was dismantled following filming, the one rebuilt for The Hobbit would remain permanently, providing a future drawcard for fans once filming finished.
--Ongoing tourism from first movies meant it would be difficult for locals to detect an influx of crew and actors for The Hobbit when filming did begin.
--The town was "looking absolutely fabulous" and was ready to welcome the film crews with open arms, he said.
Here's a lively and imaginative New Zealander who apparently will not be intimidated by the 'hush-hush' attitude of his fellow kiwis. The Hobbit's director, Peter Jackson, is also from NZ and happens to have a strong resemblance to his Twitter impersonator, Peeder Jigson...
Peeder Jigson's latest tweet: >Whaaaaat? The studio now "insists" I remove the "hobbit rap" scene. That is the BEST scene.<
Here's what we missed without a RH4:Clive Standen would have assumed the lead role...
Believe this is the scene where the sheriff punished Marian by cutting off her hair. ahhh, apparently Guy couldn't watch. Reconsidered the ahhh--someone who could abandon a baby doesn't deserve pity:)
