New York Times: Jackson to direct 'The Hobbit'

The New York Times is busting out major headlines today: First with the revelation that 'The Hobbit' films will be filmed in 3-D, and now, all but confirming Peter Jackson will direct the two 'prequels.' (Woo Hoo!!! - Sorry, had to get that in there) According Michael Cieply's article, an announcement to this affect will be coming in the next few days.
Mr. Jackson, who is a producer and writer of the two "Hobbit" films, agreed also to become their director after Mr. del Toro left the project earlier this year, citing the delays. Mr. Jackson's agreement to direct the movies has been in place but hasn't formally closed because it depends on the studios' willingness to begin production soon, according to people briefed on his status.

The first "Hobbit" film is expected to be released in mid-December 2012, the second a year later. Mr. Jackson has said he can direct the films only if those release dates can be met.

There are some other great details about the production in the full article over at The New York Times. [Read More]
