LOTR Ripoff Age of the Hobbits Is Changing Its Name, Warner Bros. Is Still Suing Just to Be Sure

Where Will Peter Jackson Find The Money For The Third Hobbit? (Dwarves LOL)

Whatever your reaction was to the news of Peter Jackson making The Hobbit into three films, the reality has set in – how the hell is this actually going to work?
