^The more Peter Jackson-Middle Earth films, the better if you ask me.

How can they do a trilogy? Hasn't this already been written and/or filmed? Or are we talking another Middle Earth trilogy?

“We’ve been certainly talking to the studio about some of the material we can’t film. And we’ve been asking them if we can do a bit more filming next year. Which I don’t know what would come of that, whether that would be extended additions or not.
But those discussions are ongoing [...] I’d like to shoot a bunch more material that we can’t shoot. There’s so much good stuff in the appendices that we haven’t been able to squeeze into these movies. That’s a discussion that we’re having.”

“It’s very premature. I mean we have an incredible source material with the appendices because ‘The Hobbit’ is obviously a novel but we also have the rights to use this 125 pages of additional notes where Tolkien expanded the world of ‘The Hobbit’ published at the end of ‘Return of the King’ and we’ve used some of it so far (and just in the last few weeks as we’ve been wrapping up the shooting) and thinking about the shape of the story.
Fran and I have been talking to the studio about other things we haven’t been able to shoot and seeing if we could persuade them to do a few more weeks of shooting.
Probably more than a few weeks actually, next year, and what form that would actually end up taking. The discussions are pretty early.
So there isn’t really anything to report but there’s other parts of the story that we’d like to tell that we haven’t been able to tell yet.”

Interesting. They should just film it and call it "Appendix." A whole new movie of random Middle Earth adventures!

No, they can't film The Silmarillion; the Tolkien Estate hasn't sold the film rights to it and, so long as CJRT is alive, isn't likely to.

So maybe then this extra "Hobbit" movie can be a Hobbit movie in name only?
A back door way of filming some of that material? Or we don't want itchy lawyers dancing on the doorstep?

Plus there's an awful lot of stuff from LoTR that they could easily re-write to not use characters from that story if they couldn't, or didn't want to, use those actors.

Would a trilogy of largely unrelated movies work commercially, though? Or would Tolkien geekdom be big enough to make them a success?

I'm thinking most likely not. However if budgets could be reduced while maintaining quality it stands a better chance imo.

I still want to see them do a movie about Aragorn in his younger days. Base it around his time in Gondor as Thorongil, his rivalry with Denethor, and his assault on the Corsairs of Umbar. That could be a fun movie.

Where does this information come from? I don't recall it in the books.

It's from the Appendices.
