Peter Jackson WILL make the Hobbit!
Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema have mended their strained relationship. The two were bitterly and publicly fighting over profits from the Lord of the Rings franchise.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Jackson would produce The Hobbit and its sequel, both prequels to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Principal photography is expected to begin in 2009 - with films being staggered for a release in 2010 and 2011.
The movies will be shot simultaneously.
That sounds awesome. The Hobbit is one of my favorite books. Now where they're getting this "sequel" shit from is besides me. Maybe he's splitting the one book up in to two movies. There was only the one book, The Hobbit, before the trilogy.
