There and Back Again

Once he is done filming Hellboy 2, Guillermo del Toro is to direct The Hobbit (via Slublog). Excellent news.

Del Toro’s moving to New Zealand for the next four years to work with Jackson and his Wingnut and Weta production teams. He’ll direct the two films back to back, with the sequel dealing with the 60-year period between “The Hobbit” and “The Fellowship of the Ring,” the first of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

...with the sequel dealing with the 60-year period between “The Hobbit” and “The Fellowship of the Ring,”

So, they're going to rush through "The Hobbit" leaving largish chunks out so they can make a sequel filled almost entirely with new stuff they will make up: "Hobbit II - Back Out There Again".

Nrrk. I have A Bad Feeling About This.
