Warners Will Deliver ‘The Hobbit’ To Everyone In the World

Like a wet dog clamoring out of a bath it didn’t want, MGM is still shaking off the slightly soapy remnants of its bankruptcy. The collaboration born of necessity between MGM and Warners seems like a far cry from 2007 when New Line and MGM were co-financing with Fox handling distribution to the world outside of North America.

But here we are. Warners is officially handling world-wide distribution for The Hobbit films. The good news is that the bumpy road to get to the bumpy road of filmmaking is over, and the cameras can roll.

The video game arm of Warners, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, also has the rights to develop a video game based on the property.
