"What seems like eleventy years later, The Hobbit is finally a done deal.
MGM, New Line and Warner Bros. have officially greenlighted the two-part Lord of the Rings prequel, featuring the adventures of Frodo's uncle, Bilbo Baggins, with Peter Jackson triple-threating as writer-director-producer. LOTR partners Fran Walsh (aka Mrs. Jackson) and Phillipa Boyens will also work on the script."

Benicio is out as director?
My bad, wrong del Toro came to mind. Guillermo, not Benicio.
I can’t find anywhere an approximate date for theater showings. how far into the future is the first movie?
Yeah...it’s all Jackson’s now it seems.

‘how far into the future is the first movie?’
Not for long.
That's perfect! Means I can be in the theater watching when meteors, volcanos, earthquakes, floods, solar flares, and alien invasion destroy Earth
We have seen Bag End in TLOTR. Hobbitton is still there in NZ.
...and they started work on it last spring (fall, to us, about a year ago) IIRC. As they did fot FotR, to let the vegetation grow to look as though it had been there for centuries...
All I can say is they better include Beorn!
It’s the baggins!!!
LOTR sucked. Any movie in which a guy this cool bites the dust is not worth watching. ;)
‘All I can say is they better include Beorn!’
Seeing your nick, I’m not surprised. My understanding is that Beorn is nearly as certain as Smaug.
My dad read “The Hobbit” to me when I was only five. So I’ve been waiting to see the movie version of the Battle of the Five Armies for over forty years! (I never watched the cartoon version — just sounded lame.)
Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait! :o)
