Peter Jackson To Make 'The Hobbit'

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Peter Jackson, Oscar-winning director of the Lord of the Rings movies, has signed a deal to produce two films based on JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit.

The filmmaker had been in dispute with New Line Cinema over income generated by the first film in the Rings trilogy.

"I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us," said Jackson. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth."

He's the only one who should do 'The Hobbit' !!!!
Your so rite diane d
They say Jackson signed a deal to produce. Possibly with Sam Raimi as director?
Sam Raimi Doesn't fit this kind of movie besides he already said he would pass should the opportunity present itself to him.
Can't wait for the Legend That is Peter Jackson to do his stuff again !
Now I won't have to boycott The Hobbit! It would have been so wrong if anyone but Peter Jackson directed these films. I think New Line realized that.
He's not directing, which is a shame..
He is only producing
well even if it is only producing... atleast he is a part of it again. i was upset when i rad that they blocked him out over that dispute. man i hope it turns out that he will direct it too.
Peter Jackson knows what he's doing, and
no other director can take his place!
Thank GOD, Peter Jackson is directing The Hobbit.
It may well be his movie, but he doesn't want to direct (as he noted). Instead, he is to let someone else do it. Even though he agrees to be a producer of his movie company.
It's about time that NLC came to their senses. The journey will put them on the map again and money and joy in everyones pockets.
It said somewhere else the two films may be not be 'part one' and 'part two' but something about telling the story of what happened for 60 years between The Hobbit and the Fellowship...

what DID actually happen in that time?
