The Hobbit Will Be Made In New Zealand, PM Confirms

BBC: Two movies based on The Hobbit will be filmed in New Zealand as planned, the country's prime minister has confirmed.

The announcement follows two days of talks with Hollywood executives over whether the Lord of the Rings prequels should be shot in the country.

Warner Bros and New Line had considered taking the production elsewhere after acting unions threatened to boycott the films in a row over wages.

The story is too old to be commented.

This movie has gone through a lot, i hope this is where all the problems end & the movie finally begins shooting.

I'm just glad it's settled now and they can ease into their start date without further issues (knock on wood).
