The Hobbitt is on its way!

Finally the Tolkien family and moviemakers have settled their lawsuit! We can now look forward to a couple of film's based on Tolkien's, The Hobbit. The films are scheduled for release (tentatively) in 2011 and 2012.

Lord of the Rings trilogy director, Peter Jackson, will wear the hat of Executive Producer/Writer this time with Guillermo del Toro directing. While initially disappointed that Jackson would not be directing the two Hobbit films, I'm encouraged that Del Toro has gotten the job. His other films have Christian elements and I very much like his style. If you haven't seen the Hellboy films, give them a try - lots of Christian themes and allusions
