Del Toro on the Hobbit

There is another exciting piece of rumor-ey news today as The Hollywood Reporter claims that renowned filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is in talks to direct both of the proposed Hobbit films.

While delayed by the strike, writing is expected to be fast-tracked on these films as soon as it ends. If this deal goes through, Peter Jackson and Guliiermo will oversee the writing process together, and production should begin on the proposed $150 (a piece) films by the end of 2009. Both films are scheduled to shoot back to back, with the first one tentatively scheduled for release in 2010, and the second in 2011.

Del Toro rocks, this is good news if it comes to pass officially.
