Peter Jackson is Hobbit Forming

Yes, it’s an old gag, but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of recycling, is there?

Apparently, after much disagreement, discussion, dithering and, err, something else beginning with D, the movie of The Hobbit will go into production next year.

Peter Jackson is directing, producing and co-writing, filming will be in New Zealand as originally intended, and that’s about it.

There will be two movies – there’s The Hobbit and a second one that will apparently provide some linkage between that and The Lord of the Rings. I have to admit to being ever so slightly dubious about that one.
