That being said, In other news, because the film was turned into a trilogy (or it is a quadrilogy now? Pentalogy? It'll get there, just give the producers some time...), and other reasons, productions for BBC's Sherlock have been put on hold until later 2013. So not only has Jackson stretched out a children's book unnecessarily (sorry Tolkien fans, I just don't see a reason for three films), now we don't get BBC's Sherlock until 2014. Woe is me...
