Peter Jackson Officially Directing The Hobbit


Peter Jackson has been more or less masterminding every decision about making the two-film version of The Hobbit since Guillermo del Toro dropped out of directing the film, but has continually insisted he's not necessarily taking the job himself. Well, that charade is now over! Peter Jackson will officially direct the new Hobbit films, as everyone was always pretty sure he would do. All is right in Middle Earth. [Deadline]
