Some Hobbits are Hard to Break…

While fans go crazy pondering the fate of the Hobbit film, filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro keeps dropping hints and yes, even riddles as to what the truth is and furthermore, when we will know for sure.

The man himself, Guillermo del Toro, who may or may not be directing ‘The Hobbit’, has posted a very curious comment on our own message boards. Del Toro has mentioned recently at a New York convention that an announcement is imminent…decipher what you will from his post:

A riddle for you all-

Half familiar, half unknown.

A thing it is, ¨It almost is-¨

Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

The day of the moon will be
when all is revealed to thee
Questions will cease
Answers will please
We´ll learn of the Shire
and all you desire.

At ten minus Three.
Joining to be
Ten minus Eight
Add to the slate
of the two dozen princes
that die without winces.
And add to each day of
the week. 

Here’s the man in his own words…

    I just want it to happen — and soon, before Ian McCellan is too old to revisit Middle Earth as Gandalf.

  2. […] and riddles have been widespread over the last few months about Guillermo del Toro’s front runner status […]
