Peter Jackson Chosen To Direct 3D 'Hobbit'
 
 

Rumors of a 3D film adaptation of The Hobbit have come to fruition. Peter Jackson has been assigned to the director's role to direct the theatrical project - which will be split into two parts.

Apparently that's the new thing. If a book is a real hot commodity, make it two different movies to milk as much money out of it as possible.

With Jackson at the helm, it should be a worthy presentation. "Exploring Tolkien’s Middle-earth goes way beyond a normal filmmaking experience, it’s an all-immersive journey into a very special place of imagination, beauty and drama," he said.

Although Peter Jackson has created some of the most successful movies of the last decade, he hasn't really dabbled in 3D. Many directors hate the process of shooting in 3D, and studios usually pressure the creative people to go out of their way to create eye-popping effects, even if they don't really fit into the story.

The movie will be produced by New Line Cinema, while distribution will be handled by Warner Bros. MGM is also on board to oversee international distribution.

Filming of the Hobbit film will begin in February.
