Peter Jackson has announced The Hobbit will not be filming in New Zealand when it (supposedly) starts filming in February. They couldn’t get the labor/union shit worked out, and thus:
? The Hobbit now has no location where to shoot.
? All the pre-production work done in New Zealand in anticipation of the film — including the entire fucking town of Hobbiton — will not be used.
? The production has less than four month to find a location and start pre-production all over again, in order to be ready to film in February.
Not. Getting. Made. So sorry. (Via /Film)
