The main article that is from has some worrying things in it. Not sure about his ideas for Smaug at all. I wonder how far along things had got or whether they are sticking with those designs; little forearms like a t-rex, a silhoutte like an axe when flying and other odditties abound. This I don't get. Smaug is the easiest thing to get right- the author notonly describes himin the book he gave us a perfectly good painting of him. Whats the problem with making him look like that? Oh and I hope to goodness the armoured trolls mentioned in the piece are gone, trolls that curl up like armour plated balls is not Tolkien!!!

I'm more worried about Thorin having a helmet with antlers, but GDT's attitude as reflected in that article is pretty discouraging in general. Rolling Eyes I know I sometimes brush off GB when he talks about how PJ did a much better job than a lot of people, but after reading the full article I stopped to take a moment to reflect on how much worse things could have been on LOTR, and how worried I am for The Hobbit even though GDT isn't directing. Laughing I should add that while I haven't seen any of his films, GDT seems like a very imaginative and skilled film-makers, but if he dislikes the constraints of adaptation, then maybe he should just stick to making his own original films. Mad

Almost everything in that article seemed a step to far to me. I was quite keen to see GDT do the film. I'm a big fan of both Pans Labyrinth and Hellboy but from this it seems he would be incapable of doing full adaptations. I am releived he is gone, though not happy with his replacement. They should have been brave and got Peter Greenaway or David Lynch in to do it.

Ugh. What makes it even worse if remembering the care that went into trying to make plausible monsters, such as the "fell beasts", with LOTR. But who cares about that, right? Rolling Eyes

I'll be quite happy with film Smaug looking like that. Nod

he probably will, though more flaming and radiant and alive and glowing and breathing fire and more moving and with Bandersnatch Cumberbund's AMAZING voice.
