Cooooooooooooooooool!

Bring it on, I can't imagine anyone else other than Peter Jackson directing it.

Movie or movies? I don't see a reason to stretch this one out to two flicks. It's a pretty short read. However, this will be awesome.

"The Hobbit" animated movie was pretty cool when I was a kid, too. Anyone seen it?

Cool news. I really liked the book. I think it will be a long time before we get to see this movie on the big screen but I cant wait. Is Peter Jackson directing the Halo movie? I hope Peter Jackson directs it.

Jackson is just serving as a producer for Halo. I can't remember the name of the person who is directing it. Apparently, the guy has some skills with FX though.

I feel the same way, only one film is needed to tell the tale of The Hobbit, however lengthy it might be. The only reason the studio is interested in a two-part epic is to double their box office returns.

i saw that animated version back in the day, my friend had a copy. I really enjoyed it, led into my reading of the books. I almost picked up the animated version at Suncoast one day, but I'm afraid on how well it would hold up to what i remember of it. Would it still be as enjoyable or suck?

I don't know if it will hold up as a great film, but it's certainly a faithful adaptation with great artwork, music and voice actors.

Is that the one that features the creepy, amphibious Gollum?

I have that. I love it. I also love the animated Return of the King. They probably don't hold up quite as well now that we're old and jaded, but they are still enjoyable if you loved them as a kid.

It sounds like Jackson's got a lot on his plate right now, what with The Lovely Bones, The Damn Busters remake, and his recent optioning of yet another epic fantasy adaptation Temeraire.

I'd love to see him do it, but I'm afraid it may not happen for a long time, that's if MGM waits for him.
