The Hobbit - joke thread

"New Line Cinema chairman Bob Shaye announced that Michael Bay will direct “Lord of the Rings” prequel “The Hobbit.” “Michael is one of the most successful and acclaimed filmmakers working today and I’m confident he can retain the spirit of the ‘Rings’ trilogy while adding much needed sexual and action elements,” Shaye told Dateline Hollywood..."

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! "Sexual and action elements"? Are they high? Number one: Bilbo is A SINGLE GUY AND HE ALWAYS WAS! Number two: READ THE BOOK! THERE'S ALREADY ENOUGH ACTION! I smell a disaster of Battlefield Earth proportions. The Hobbit is one of my all time favorite books! Don't ruin it! &*%$#@ Hollywood people!

You know that's a comedy website right?


If you read the whole article, it's kind of obvious.

They're kidding, right?

Please tell me this is a joke.

"Much needed sexual elements" in The Hobbit?! Um, between who? The dwarves? Bilbo? Gandalf? Gollum? There's mostly guys in the story...

And then we move on to the fact that it's Michael Bay... X| He'd manage to find a way to stick an exploding car chase in Middle Earth if he did this thing, I know he would...

This smells like prank, but if it's not... :( I shall cuddle my copy of The Hobbit and read it several times to make the pain of such a movie's existence go away.

Umm.....that most likely means that *grimace* they're going to add at least one female supporting role to the story, the "love interest." (Whose love interest? I have no idea. :shock: )

Here’s the clicker...no one’d blame ya.”

Oh, I'm sure they wouldn't need to add a female character for sexual tension... :wink:

Good grief, are people really that gullible? Please tell me that none of you actually thought this was real.

Funny article, though. :)

Of course it's not real. But that kind of thing just ISN'T the thing you joke about. :[

I put a little hidden message in my original post hoping someone would quote me and see it revealing this was a joke. Having everyone believe it was more fun it turned out!

Is this becoming a routine, or something?
