Does the history of The Hobbit production give us any clues? Can't Post

Theres obviously alot of spectulation about exactually how the story of TH will be adapted but might the history of Jackson working on it provide clues?

The early rumours seem to be that we'd get one film adapting the hobbit and a second film linking into LOTR. Thats obviously changed but to me it provides a few interesting bits of information...

1.Jackson seemed like he may have wanted to keep the tone of the Hobbit similar to the book by filming it seperately.

Perhaps this hints thats Jackson may look to keep at least the first film similar to the book?

2.He was confident that he could fit the entire story into a single film.

Could this hint that the first film maybe able to cover alot of the events of the book? perhaps all the way up until Smaugs death?

3.He wanted to cover for the "LOTR" material such as the White Council afterwards.

Might this suggest that The White Council material maybe limated to the second film? Perhaps link into The Battle of the Five Armies and become the main focus of that film if Smaug has been delt with in film 1?
