A year ago, the film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released on a giant screen in Los Angeles, making it one of the biggest films of the year.
Its $400 million budget has earned it more than $400.1 million in global box office, including $300 million in the United States.
Now, in an effort to get the film out into the real world, the New Zealand film industry is working to revive it with the release of an adaptation of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novel that will be released in New Zealand next year.
The story is told in the New York Times Book Review in an interview with actor Ian McKellen, who played the role of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit trilogy.
The Hobbit, McKellen said, was an incredibly difficult film to adapt.
“I did a lot of rewriting and redrafting, and I wrote it in my own voice, which was hard to do,” McKellen told the newspaper.
“The story of Bilbogad is much more difficult to write than the book, and it’s hard to write a story in which the main character doesn’t have a very deep history with a very powerful family.”
So when I did the book version, I was very concerned that the film would be seen as a direct rip-off of the book.
“In the film, a new character is introduced, Bilbo, who is introduced as a boy from the north of Middle-earth who has a dream of becoming a dwarf.
The book, however, has Bilbo being a Hobbit.
The film, based on the works of J.R.
R Tolkien, is an epic fantasy film which tells the tale of Bilbas son Aragorn.
It was made in 2001 and stars Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Martin Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Idina Menzel, Ian McKellan, and Ben Kingsley.
A few years ago, McKellamins film company, BAM Media, announced plans to make a new version of The Hobbit in New York.
The production, which is called The Hobbit Trilogy, will have a different set of characters, McKells company said.
It will focus on the Hobbit in the first film, which tells of Bilboros journey from Bilbo’s cave, to the shores of Lake-town and the great city of Rivendell, to meet Gandalf, the wizard who teaches him the ways of the dwarves.
It will be set in the early years of the Third Age, a period where Bilbo travels to the world of Minas Tirith.
The story will take place in the lands of Middle Earth.
The director of the project is Josh Cooley, who will write the script.
The film will have “great, great themes, but we’re also making the film about a whole bunch of different things that are happening right now,” Cooley told the New Yorker.
The Tolkien estate, which produces the film and owns the rights to the film in New, is hoping to have the film released in early 2019, when Hobbit fans will celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Lord of The Rings.
A New Zealand government initiative called The Fellowship of the Ring, which has raised money for Hobbit films in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, has already been used to help fund a film adaptation of The Silmarillion.
