If there is one thing I've learned from closely following the entertainment business, it's that you should never celebrate too soon. Over the past year or so everything seemed to be going so smoothly for THE HOBBIT pre-production that something was bound go wrong. At least it's nothing too big.

Peter Jackson revealed that he, Fran Walsh, Phillipa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro are still hard at work on the script of the second HOBBIT movie and won't be able to finish until early 2010. This pushes the start of the production back to the middle of summer.

So what is the significance of this slight move? Well, it's hard to tell right now since Jackson didn't offer any more details. My guess is that they'll still try to aim for the December 2011/2012 releases, since the dates carry so much emotional weight for fans who will be celebrating the 10th year anniversaries of the first two LORD OF THE RINGS movies.

If that doesn't work out and they can't take advantage of the lucrative holiday season, I can see New Line pushing each movie to the summer of the following year. It's not a huge wait, but let's hope no other bad things happen.
