SHERLOCK

/Film reports that Martin Freeman, while promoting the FX show "Fargo," discussed the possibility of a one-off episode of "Sherlock."

"Mark Gatiss may beat me up, but there is an idea for this one-off special that’s such a good idea, and as I was listening to it, I thought, 'We’ve just got to do this,'" Freeman said while speaking with Cultbox. "And I don’t know when we are going to be able to do it, unfortunately. It’s a fantastic, really mouth-watering idea. But I really don’t know when we are going to get to do it."

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES

Apparently, the final "The Hobbit" movie has been renamed "The Battle of the Five Armies." It was previously named "There and Back Again," though it looks like plans have changed.

"'There and Back Again' felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film,” Peter Jackson said via Facebook. "But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced -- after all, Bilbo has already arrived ‘there’ in the 'Desolation of Smaug.' When we did the premiere trip late last year, I had a quiet conversation with the studio about the idea of revisiting the title. We decided to keep an open mind until a cut of the film was ready to look at. We reached that point last week, and after viewing the movie, we all agreed there is now one title that feels completely appropriate. And so: 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' it is."
