Hollywood Giveth...

…and Hollywood taketh away.  No sooner do we hear that Atlas Shrugged has begun production (with unknowns doing it) than DarkHorizons reports that Guillermo del Toro will not be directing two films based on the work of the other of the twentieth century’s two most important novelists, J.R.R. Tolkien, due to the ongoing legal-department-induced delays in production — nor does it sound likely that producer Peter Jackson will fill the resulting void himself.  Am I going to end up watching these films in the far-flung year 2015 A.D. instead of the currently-scheduled 2012 and 2013?

Luckily, we have a Potter (7A), a Narnia (3), and a Tron (2.0) coming up at the end of this year, so we won’t be forced to spend too much time in reality.
