Peter Jackson Denies Hobbit Delays


"Somebody wrote something on the internet and a lot of nonsense happened," Peter Jackson told somebody else on the Internet over the weekend, attempting to suffocate pesky (and apparently inaccurate) rumors that The Hobbit's pushed-back shooting schedule will affect its 2011 release date. "We were due to deliver the scripts and be shooting sometime around April and now, I think I said in an interview, we were shooting in June. And somehow people are now saying the film is delayed." So, for future reference: Two-month hold-up = on schedule. Got it. [Collider via Total Film]
