Peter JacksonI think it’s safe to say that everyone was pretty much stunned when New Line announced Peter Jackson would not be involved in the making of “The Hobbit.” After all, he pretty much was the Lord of the Rings.

Well I’ve got a double dose of good news, folks. After finally settling their stupid little squabble over money, they’ve made buddy buddy!

Peter Jackson will be producing not one film, but a two-part series of “The Hobbit”!


No word yet on who’s directing, but Jacksons’ wife / partner will be executive producing, like she did on the LOTR flicks.

Check out the press release, and the LA Times article.
