WHO'S IN TALKS TO DIRECT "THE HOBBIT?" 


New Line and MGM are co-financing the film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit."

The lawsuit filed by Peter Jackson against New Line was resolved in December, and since then, the studio company has been busy talking to a short-list of directors.

New Line is making "Hobbit" its number one priority, and is making sure, the director of their billion-dollar "The Lord of the Rings" franchise is involved with the making of the prequel.

The films (they will produce two installments of "The Hobbit) will be shot simultaneously in 2009. The budget is set at $150 million per film. The first installment is set to be released in 2010, and the second in 2011.

So who's in talks to direct the "Hobbit" movies? Read More...
