Guillermo del Toro Directing The Hobbit?

No official comment, but insiders say its true: Guillermo del Toro will direct the 2 new movies based on the The Hobbit and other works by author JRR Tolkien.

We first heard this would happen a month ago, and since then names like Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Mist) and Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Army Of Darkness) have made the rounds. Now it seems the del Toro, who’s pulp and fantasy epics Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth were so enjoyable, is going to bring about his vision of Middle Earth.

Expect an official announcement soon that Peter Jackson’s Mexican Doppleganger will pick up one of the great film series ever.

Peter Jackson will produce The Hobbit

After years in the courts, and constant questions if the movies will ever get made, we finally have an answer. New Line and MGM will be going forward with a pair of movies based on the JRR Tolkien book “The Hobbit.” See the full press release here.

The Hobbit takes place before the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and follows a younger Bilbo Baggins on his first adventure. The story also features popular LOTR characters like Gandalf The Grey and Gollum.

No casting has been made, no director has been chosen. Effects are expected to be done by WETA workshop and be consistent with the existing Lord Of The Rings films. Shooting will start in 2009 for release of the 2 films in 2010 and 2011.
