Maybe Bruce Campbell can play one of the dwarves.

Better as one of the leading men of Dale.

If Smaug is anything as good as the dragon CGI in Reign of Fire then they'll be fine, however it could go all wrong such as the Dungeons and Dragons' dragon. (Lordy please no)

With Jackson currently out of the running other contenders step into the fray

The Battle of the Five Armies featuring literally tens of people.

Also I'd never heard of this. Does anyone know anything about it? I particularly like the rendering of the dwarves in a sort of David and the Gnomes style.

I'm not 100% certain but I may have sold/sell that on dvd at work during the past six months.
I'm pretty sure we recently had either that or The Lord of The Rings in stock.

You've never seen that one? It's one of the better-known works produced by the duo of Arthur Rankin, Jr., and Jules Bass. Good voice casting, and some nice songs.

They also produced the animated version of The Return of the King, whereas Ralph Bakshi was responsible for the animated The Lord of the Rings film.

They've made the entire film! Thorin's played by a girl! Gandalf speaks with a Ian McKellan voice and then says stuff like "but anyway" really normally! They use the same overly dramatic music for having dinner at Bilbo's house as they do for the battles! They just take themselves so seriously. It's like someone has filmed a bunch of live roleplayers...Which I suppose they have.

This is an additional scene in which Thorin and Gandalf discuss taking Bilbo before the begining of the book. Surely The Hobbit doesn't need additional scenes?

McKellen keen to be Gandalf again.

If the rumour mill is to be believed, and contrary to the BBC's report above, it also looks Jackson may be back in the frame for directing this.

Im glad he is, I loved him as Gandalf and I still think he would be good as Dumbledore.

It does look like things are moving ever so slowly towards a positive resolution. From what I've read it seems like things are thawing out and it is looking better than it all did a year ago. Will probably still be three years until they actually start making it, though.

The main chap at New Line seems to have backed down from his "It will be a cold day in hell before I work with Jackson again" type comment.

I saw something recently where even he was making positive noises.

It seems to be the work of his co-head of New Line that has led to more cordial relations. I can imagine there was much ''You want to throw away a billion dollar franchise over a squabble! How fucking dumb are you?'' between them in the immediate aftermath.

Possibly, but I seem to remember one of the bods from Universal, who have equal rights on the film, making a "it's not set in stone yet" type comment at the time, so I wonder if New Line came under pressure from them.
