Default It's official: Peter Jackson to produce (but not direct) two Hobbit films

NEW YORK (AP) -- Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema have reached agreement to make J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit," a planned prequel to the blockbuster trilogy "The Lord of the Rings."

Jackson, who directed the "Rings" trilogy, will serve as executive producer for "The Hobbit." A director for the prequel films has yet to be named.

Relations between Jackson and New Line had soured after "Rings," despite a collective worldwide box office gross of nearly $3 billion -- an enormous success. The two sides nevertheless were able to reconcile, with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM) splitting "The Hobbit" 50/50, spokemen for both studios said Tuesday.

"I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us, so that we may begin a new chapter with our old friends at New Line," Jackson said in a statement. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth."

Two "Hobbit" films are scheduled to be shot simultaneously, similar to how the three "Lord of the Rings" films were made. Production is set to begin in 2009 with a released planned for 2010, with the sequel scheduled for a 2011 release.

New Line Cinema is owned by Time Warner. (Time Warner is the parent company of CNN.) Sony and Comcast are among the owners of MGM.

I don't know why he's not just directing them too. Maybe he'll be busy making some more splattergore movies.

I really enjoyed 'The Hobbit' a lot. And in two parts they'll hopefully get in the whole book and not leave slightly important shit out like they did in LOTR.

Yeah what Matt said.

If I have to endure another 3 years of everyone wanking on about how great NZ is to make a film I'm going to fucking kill something.

I wonder if they'll be better than porcelina. Oh and screw the Hobbit, they should have went and made a trilogy of the Silmarillion.

It's hilarious how we're suppposed to be this humble llittle countr, but then the first chance we get we blow smoke up our own arse like crazy. Those films were not that great, get the fuck over it.

I still hope they will. Heck, you could even make a pretty dang good tv series of it as well.

Maybe he wants them to actually be good. Hopefully he'll hire a director who'll actually be willing to leave some stuff on the cutting room floor.

They should recreate The Children of Húrin as a Muppet special.
