Well it seems that a lot of MGM funded films are ridden with bad omens surronding production, with the 23rd Bond film being cancelled and The Hobbit losing its director Guillermo Del Toro. But with the Hobbit still progressing we can safely assume that someone, somewhere is still chucking money at it. Here – thanks to German website Herr-Der-Ringe-Film.de (via Cinema Blend) – we have some very immensely cool pics of crew putting back together the sets of Bilbo Baggins’ home town Hobbiton for production.
So far its looking good, but according to the posts on Herr-Der-Ringe-Film.de these were taken before del Toro left his post as director — still it’s a good sign that this production has some life in it. As for director – they have none. Green light – not yet. So as always stay tuned as information comes in. You can view the pics below:
