    Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson are writing the screenplay for The Hobbit. These movies just keep sounding better and better. I cant wait!

    Jackson, Del Toro Will Write 'The Hobbit'

    20 August 2008 5:04 PM, PDT | From GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news

    I can't say this is terribly surprising: Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro have decided to pen the script for the Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit themselves instead of hiring outside writers for the job.

    Jackson, of course, directed the record-shattering trilogy and will produce both Hobbit movies. Del Toro is slated to direct the two new film entries into Tolkien lore. The pair will get help from Fran Walsh (Mrs. Jackson) and Philippa Boyens, both of whom worked with Jackson on the Lotr screenplays.

    Curiously, Jackson and Del Toro had put out feelers for the better part of a year to find new writers, even though both directors commonly write their own original scripts and adaptations. I can't possibly imagine that they both thought they'd be more comfortable working from someone else's material; in a way, I'm still a little surprised Jackson didn't want to direct The Hobbit himself,

    After seeing what the LotR did to him, I'm not too shocked. Del Toro may end up being stick thin if the experience is the same
    It is good news that the two will be writing it.

    The Hobbit was my favorite book as a kid. LOTR series is watchable but a lot of the movies had endless scenes that dragged for too long.
