Guillermo Del Toro To Direct 'The Hobbit'
It's official. Guillermo del Toro is going to direct The Hobbit. This is good news, as he's done some critically acclaimed stuff in fantasy filmmaking (El Laberinto del fauno or Pan's Labyrinth) and he's a versatile and talented director in general.
It's going to be two movies, which means they are either breaking up The Hobbit into two parts (good idea) or they are filming the 60 years of non-events that take place between the end of The Hobbit and the beginning of The Lord of the Rings (bad idea). If it's the latter, they can call the movie The Lord of the Rings: Appendix B.
