    The Hobbit becomes a Trilogy

    The press release came in today to announce that Peter Jackson or Warner Bros will be squeezing the Hobbit for all it’s worth by making it a trilogy. Yes the latest Hollywood fad has hit the Hobbit. Jackson stated, “Upon recently viewing a cut of the first film, and a chunk of the second, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and I were very pleased with the way the story was coming together. We recognized that the richness of the story of The Hobbit, as well as some of the related material in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, gave rise to a simple question: do we tell more of the tale?
