One Into Two Into Three

I had heard filmmaker Peter Jackson was turning The Hobbit into a two-part film epic. Since when was it upshifted into a trilogy? Was it the lure of more money, more profits for corporations? It’s not as if JRR Tolkien didn’t pen other great Middle Earth stories that could be filmed.

It’s become a tough choice for me. I can do my part to resist the lemming lure and plunk down an admission or two (or three) to bolster corporate profits. The Tolkien family has refused to sell film rights to other works, so maybe I should have no fear that a single Middle Earth character from the First Age will be developed into a Bond-like franchise.
