The Movie

The Hobbit movie is being produced and directed by Peter Jackson and filmed in New Zealand.

The film almost never got made, due to many years of contractual agreements that needed to be re-negotiated, directors resigning from the project, film studios going bust and personal disagreements between major players.

The novel will be split into two parts for the film version. The first film will be titled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and released in December 2012. The second film will be titled The Hobbit: There and Back Again and will be released in December 2013.
