Peter Jackson has decided to direct two installments of The Hobbit

The final deal is apparently in negotiations.

Great news, I hope this ends up that way.  Like it was said, Jackson did such a masterful job with the LOTR Trilogy, and I think he'd do just as good with The Hobbit.  I was starting to think these movies just wouldn't get made with all of the studio troubles, but hopefully this is a positive sign.  I'm getting psyched again....I sort of miss the years when we had a LOTR movie to look forward each year.

This news couldn't have been any better.  I think we will have a seamless transition between the Hobbit movies now and the LOTR trilogy.  You know that Jackson will be meticulous at making sure the these movies are visually identical so that you could watch them in order and not feel as though you were looking at two completely different worlds.  Can't wait to start seeing web-spots and pictures from filming.

Now it's a race to see which gets out of development hell first: this or the Star Wars live-action series.

This doesn't look good for Bilbo Baggins... SAG Warns Members Not to Work on LOTR Prequel

The guy wins an Oscar for best picture and he thinks he's George Lucas. That is how Lucas got exiled from Hollywood by taking production to England. I say more power to Jackson! Screw the leeching unions! I want my Hobbit movie.

Sounds like it has finally been green lit, a few casting rumors at the linky as well.

Sweet!  Me and my oldest son have been reading the Hobbit together the last few weeks.  It is amazing how different of a book it is from LOTR while basically telling a similar story

And...much of the cast is announced via Warner Bros, including the often rumored Martin Freeman playing Bilbo.

Excellent choice for Bilbo.  Martin Freeman was pretty good in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Sounds like another LOTR vet, other than Serkis, McKellen, and Weaving, may be returning for the Hobbit in some capacity.

Ummm...Why are they adding characters to the movie who weren't in the actual novel?  ::)

This turns my stomach...it reeks of a cheap money-grab, and does nothing to augment the story, which is perfectly fine as originally written.

Well his dad is in the movie and since elves basically live forever, there is no reason that he sqhouldnt be present with the elves of Mirkwood. Now, I hope he's nothing more than a passing cameo and not a "main" character. Anything more and I'll agree with you.
