Oh, wait, maybe the Hobbit will be filmed in New Zealand!
Somebody, please, make a decision. Frankly, it sounded a lot like sour grapes when Peter Jackson said he was moving production out of New Zealand. Sure, there are contract disputes and shit, but itâ€™s not like the government of New Zealand voted to bomb Jacksonâ€™s home with untreated human waste. Unions do what unions do, and sometimes thatâ€™s protecting their members and sometimes thatâ€™s being a bunch of fucktards.
Bottom line, I would actually prefer New Zealand be the location for the shoot, just because it did such a good job of standing in for Middle Earth the last time. Seems someone in New Zealand agrees, since thereâ€™s going to be some kind of rally or demonstration to try to get production to stay in New Zealand.
Do it, Jackson. Come on, just â€˜cause some other people are being dicks doesnâ€™t mean you have to.
