The Hobbit is an upcoming two-part epic fantasy film directed by Peter Jackson. It is a film adaptation of the 1937 novel of the same name by J. R. R. Tolkien and prequel to The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings, returns as director of the film and also serves as producer and co-writer. The film will star Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Richard Armitage, known for playing Lucas North in the BBC drama series Spooks, as Thorin Oakenshield. Several actors from Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy will reprise their roles, including Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood, and Orlando Bloom. Additionally, composer Howard Shore, who wrote the score for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, has confirmed his role in both parts of the film project. The two parts, entitled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again, are being filmed back to back and are currently in production in New Zealand; principal photography began on March 21, 2011. They are scheduled to be released on December 14, 2012 and December 13, 2013, respectively.

Yes! I love LOTR but am mildly excited about this for some reason. Maybe all the Avengers, Phase 2, Episode VII news has me through the roof with excitement. Prove me wrong, HOBBIT!

@ckal- Don't get me wrong, I read the Hobbit, LOTR, and the Silmarillion. When Fellowship came out I saw a midnight showing with the girl I was seeing in LA, couldn't believe what I saw (best book adaptation of ANY book), and saw it later that day, alone, getting drunk and laughing my ass off in sheer joy at one of the best movie experiences of my life. Hobbit just feels a tiny, itsy, bitsy been-there-done-that. I'm especially worried about milking a trilogy out of such a short book that was originally written more towards kids compared to LOTR.

@fearitself: but that says nothing about the film itself.

The first poster is nice but doesn't need that pic of Gollum in it. The second one is a shitfest of horrendous photoshopping. Someone should be fired.... or beaten.
