‘The Hobbit’ Shooting Delayed

Peter Jackson hopes to start filming in mid-2010.

Already a long way off, "The Hobbit" is now coming later rather than sooner.

Peter Jackson, speaking to German outlet MovieReporter.net, revealed that production on the film will now be starting sometime in the middle of next year.

Here’s the full quote (translated by TheOneRing.net):

"We’re currently working on the second script which we hope to have completed by the end of this year or beginning of next. When the scripts are completed, we can begin with the exact calculation of the necessary budget. We hope to start filming in the middle of next year. However, we’ve received no green light from the studio yet."
