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.

I honestly thought you meant the band Sting. I thought it was going to be a trailer with Roxanne in the background or something.

2012 has already had so many awesome and fulfilling movie experiences and The Hobbit isn't even freaking out yet! What more can a fanboy ask for?

The Avengers, Dark Knight Rises, Ted, Dredd, Skyfall and now The Hobbit.

I just hope Gandolf's sword glows blue this time.
Glamdring, Orcrist and Sting should all glow blue when Goblins and Orcs are near.

sicknimon@ Bilbo named it Sting after killing a spider, they found it in the Trolls cave after they turn to stone along with Orcrist and Glamdring.
LucasMend - 11/27/2012, 2:52 PM
@sicknimon yep, he found it himself in the trolls cave and kept it for himself for a while, naming it sting after killing a spider in Mirkwood
