Jackson will shoot "The Hobbit" in February, and was heard saying that Cate is "one of my favorite actors to work with and I couldn't be more thrilled to have her reprise the role she so beautifully brought to life in the earlier films."

The director co-wrote the script with Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro. Martin Freeman will play Bilbo Baggins aka the hobbit!

Will Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Andy Serkis as Gollum return to Middle Earth as well? You betcha!
