Peter Jackson has agreed to direct The Hobbit!

| Filed under: Collecting Newswellinghall | June 25, 2010 @ 12:28 pm (Views: 10351)

"In a surprising but not altogether shocking development, Deadline is reporting that Peter Jackson has agreed to direct the two HOBBIT films and that he's finalizing his deal right now with Warner Bros., New Line and MGM. While the obvious fingers were pointed at Jackson after Guillermo del Toro somewhat abruptly left the film, Jackson didn't look like he'd have the contractual wiggle room to make it happen. Whatever deals he had with other studios though, he was able to get out of and return to the world of Tolkein.

Jackson will direct both of the HOBBIT films back-to-back. He'll be flying to London over the July 4th weekend to meet with actors and then back to Los Angeles shortly thereafter to view audition tapes for the film. It all sounds like, even despite MGM's financial woes, that THE HOBBIT could wind up happening sooner rather than later."

    But this is only a rumour, right? Checked at theonering.net, which usually are first with the movie-related news, and they didn't have anything yet on this story.

    I would be the first to accept that, just because something has appeared in the news media, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is definitely going to happen. On the other hand, TORn doesn't have a complete monopoly on Tolkien news.

    Is the movie really going to be made? It's been over a year and no word yet on the movie. But it's awesome that Peter Jackson is directing The Hobbit. I can't wait to see the movie!

    I'm struggling with why you may think that there has been no word on the movie. Your best site for the movie is http://www.theonering.net/ which Morgan has already mentioned.
