I should be sleeping, but something has been keeping me awake. It was the niggling half-memory of a tweet I read while on the road this afternoon, something that I knew I had to bring to you but I forgot in all of the Hobbit excitement.

Or is there some other reason for this tweet coming today?

UPDATE: Best information now says that production starts in the week of April 22nd. But that’s not official. We’ll keep you posted.
