[Movies] Peter Jackson Says The Hobbit: There And Back Again May Be Split In Two
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.18.2012

Even after reports that had studio executives confirming there wouldn't be a third Hobbit film, director Peter Jackson told HitFlix that he wouldn't mind filming more. He also said that he and Warner Bros are in "discussions" for turning the second film into either an "extended edition" or two different movies.

When asked at Comic-Con about it, Jackson said: "That's a discussion we're having, yeah. We have certainly been talking to the studio about some of the material we can't film, and we've been asking them so we can do a bit more filming next year. Which, I don't know what would come of that, whether it'd be extended editions or whatnot. But those discussions are ongoing."

Jackson said he was hoping to film supplementary material from J.R.R. Tolkien. He added: "I'd like to shoot a bunch more material that we [couldn't] shoot. There's so much good stuff in the appendices that we haven't been able to squeeze into these movies."

He was referring to the appendices found at the end of The Return of the King which focuses on the background on Middle Earth and its history.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on December 14 and the sequel, There And Back Again will be released in 2013. Both films were shot back-to-back out of New Zealand. They took over 250 days to shoot with delays and gaps between March 21, 2011 when shooting began and July 6 (last week) when shooting ended. Jackson never denied the possibility for more shoots in 2013, and now it seems as though The Hobbit 2 could become The Hobbit 2: Part 1 and Part 2.
