This is pretty messed up.
Del Toro’s moving to New Zealand for the next four years to work with Jackson and his Wingnut and Weta production teams. He’ll direct the two films back to back, with the sequel dealing with the 60-year period between “The Hobbit” and “The Fellowship of the Ring,” the first of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
A reporting error? Or is some hack sitting down to write The Similar-illion: The New Adventures of Bilbo Baggins?
