The thing is: if they're planning to do a 'bridge' kind of story between The Hobbit and LotR, then what kind of source material will they use for it? What is the copyright situation with Tolkien's publishers? What's Christopher Tolkien's take on all this? It's just really ... odd.

Anyhow, my initial reaction to the 'second LotR film' ain't positive.

I'm looking forward to The Hobbit but the prospect of a 'second LotR' film just makes me feel like a curmudgeon, or an über-purist.
