Just to clarify, the rights to the Silmarillion lie with the Tolkien estate. So they can't use any of that stuff (unfortunately). I'd love to see a Beren & Luthien film, or even better, the grimdark Children of Hurin.

Where the Hobbit is being fleshed out, it is using material from the LOTR Appendices. This is good, but don't expect to see any references to the Elder Days or Morgoth (who may, possibly, have been Smaug's creator - or at least was ultimately responsible for his existence).
