This doesn't actually say that Jackson will be directing the films, just that he will be an Executive Producer. I hope he directs them himself.
Hmm, sequel to The Hobbit is The Lord of the Rings which has already been done in film.
I'm petty sure they plan to make the second film based on the appendix material from the all the books (well the material that references the periods during the time between the Hobbit and the LOTR which is quote a few years)
Well there are essentially 2 stories. The first could be a fellow-ship style one where Gandalf gets Bilbo and the dwarves and they set off on their quest and the second could be based on the big battle and the riches they all earn.
That's what I would do anyways
It would allow me to pace my movies accordingly.
Saw this earlier, nice 180. Happy to see Jackson involved.
This is plausible, but The Hobbit is quite a bit shorter than the LoTR Trilogy so I would imagine if they did split the single volume Hobbit into two movies they would probably not be the three hour Epic's we got to experience with LoTR.
I was thinking the same thing. That Battle could play out in a whole movie basically.
There is a rumor of Guillermo Del Toro directing and that would make me very happy if Jackson isn't doing it. Also rumored is Alfonso Cuaron from the HP 3 (prisoner of azkaban). Those two would make me happy.
The Hobbit is definitely a big enough story to put into two very highly grossing movies.
