The Hobbit Will Film In February?

Most big Hobbit news breaks in recent weeks seem to have come from The New York Times.

Peter Jackson’s deal to direct is now finalized, according to a person who was briefed on the movie’s intricacies this week. But continuing uncertainty over attempts to have the filmmakers bargain collectively with their actors in New Zealand still stands between the production and its planned February start date.

New Zealand officials have said the production can’t legally enter a collective bargaining arrangement with its actor-contractors, but unions there have insisted that a deal could be struck.

This has already been pushed back from January, but the New York Times does make it sound like closure is in sight.
