The Hobbit Movie's Filming Riddle

In The Hobbit, Gollum and Bilbo go head to head in a riddles challenge . Do you like riddles? Here is one of Gollum's riddles for Bilbo which somehow seem to fit very well with the latest from Andy Serkis :

"This thing all things devours: Birds, beasts, trees, flowers; Gnaws iron, bites steel; Grinds hard stones to meal; Slays king, ruins town, And beats high mountain down"

The answer of this riddle is also the subject of this update on The Hobbit movie which is 'time'. Andy Serkis also known as Gollum has just revealed that filming will 'maybe' start close to the end of this year. Andy also explained to mtv.co.uk that dates keep changing which is expected as the situation with the MGM Studio (which own part of The Hobbit) is still to be resolved . Looking forward to the day when I will be able to announce filming has started...soon...I hope...maybe....are we there yet? :) And as Gollum would say...

"What shall we do? Curse them and crush them! We must wait here, precious, wait a bit and see."
(J.R.R.Tolkien- Riddles in the Dark-The Hobbit)
