Change of Hobbit

Good news for the future of Middle Earth: Guillermo del Toro is officially the director of the upcoming feature film adaptation of the classic J.R.R. Tolkien novel The Hobbit.

Del Toro, who will be represented in theaters later this summer with Hellboy II: The Golden Army, will reportedly move to New Zealand for four years to work on the epic fantasy, as well as a planned sequel that will bridge the story of The Hobbit to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Peter Jackson, who won three Oscars for writing, directing and producing The Return of the King, will still be aboard to produce the two new films.
