Jackson Back in 'Hobbit' Via New Line, MGM Del Toro linked to 'The Hobbit' Guillermo del Toro should be the right man! Excellent. EDIT: Originally, back in 2007, this thread was especially opened because of the then forthcoming movie (cycle) for Tolkien's The Hobbit. For years it had the title "The Hobbit on the big screen!" Now I thought it would be appropriate to "upgrade" this topic to everything related to Tolkien. Books, films, games, you name it.
