SDCC: ‘The Hobbit’

Seems like the supposed casting news for The Hobbit we reported on last month was a total hoax. At least according to Peter Jackson, who acts as a producer on the film (to be directed by Guillermo Del Toro).

While at the District 9 panel (the film was very well received) at San Diego Comic Con Peter Jackson took the opportunity to talk about The Hobbit and debunk rumors about casting. I was quite surprised to hear that Warner Bros. hasn’t green lit the project yet. On a more positive note Jackson explained why The Hobbit will be made into two films despite the lack of length of the source material. Check out what the man had to say yourselves below the cut.
