NEW ZEALAND – When it is complete Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit quadrology will join the prestigious Whitaker list of films that are longer to watch than the book they come from is to read.
Peter (Lidl) Whitaker began compiling the list one Sunday afternoon, because ‘it was raining and there was nothing on television.’ He reads the source book in one sitting and times it.
‘The Whitaker List?’ he said, leaving a restaurant in Wellington, New Zealand. ‘I’ve never heard of it.’
The Frighteners 2 is due for release in 2016
