About the Movies

I have only watched the movies before this class. I am enjoying reading the books. My husband is a huge Lord of the Rings fan. He just told me today for all those movie watchers out there that Peter Jackson is going to be making the Hobbit and Hobbit 2 into movies also. The Hobbit is scheduled to be released in 2010 and the Hobbit 2 for 2011. I just thought I would let everyone know.

It is Guilermo Del Toro who is directing the hobbit movies. It should be interesting to see if he directs them to fit well with the Peter Jackson movies.

While Peter Jackson isn't directing it, I think that he and Fran Walsh are the executive producers. I think it will be hard for some fans to accept if different actors play Bilbo and Gandalf instead of the two Ians that were in LOTR.
