It would be amazing if he did. :yes: But I would guess he'll probably stop after The Hobbit, since out of Tolkien's works, The Hobbit and LotR are the most developed stories. Besides, I'm not sure there would be enough of an audience who would go see a less well-known tale on the big screen. :confused:

I agree. I would love to see the Children of Hurin, but I don't think enough people would support it compared to what it would cost to make. and I would want it to be made well, you know? so I don't see any more Tolkien stories in the near future. :(

I don't think that there will be any other Tolkien films made by PJ, or any other professional film company. The Rights to the Silmarillion and presumably Tolkien's other writings belong to his family, who's priority is maintaining Tolkien's legacy over making money.

I also don't think the Silmarillion has the fan-following to put pressure on Film companies in the same way that they did for the Hobbit, The Hobbit is a children's book that most people are familiar with in some way. The Silmarillion, and Children of Hurin to a lesser extent in contrast seem to be books for the Tolkien fans, I've personally never come across anyone who hasn't read LotR that has read the Silm.

Plus I think it would be refreshing for Tolkien's other works not to be made into a film- as literally every piece of popular literature is adapted for film or tv now :)

What I think would be interesting would be if someone else made their own adaptation of LotR -- maybe for TV, I saw someone suggest that once and it made me think. Of course, PJ's version is pretty close to perfection, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be done well by someone else. Besides, there were tons of scenes and characters that were left out of the books (the Barrow Downs, for example) that would be interesting to see on film.

It might be a bit soon still for that, but maybe someday when we're all grown up and we have incredible technology, it would work. :)

^ are you talking about something along the lines of Born of Hope. Like more of an indapendant project?
