Two Hobbits of a Kind

Peter Jackson is joining forces with Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro to make the two back-to-back film adaptations of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Jackson will co-produce the film with fellow director Fran Walsh. Del Toro, who directed Pan’s Labyrinth and Hell Boy, said the appointment was a dream come true. “This is a great honour, and I am indeed blessed to become a part of the film-making community that Peter, Fran and their extraordinary team of collaborators have created in New Zealand,” he said. Jackson’s Wingnut and WETA production facilities will provide digital effects.
