The Hobbit, two-part prequal of The Lord Of The Ring Trilogy.
The Hobbit is the working title for a planned two-part film yet to be produced. The film is intended to be based on the novel of the same name by J. R. R. Tolkien. The film is in development and Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, will serve as producer, co-writer, and director. Guillermo del Toro worked with Jackson for over two years on the pre-production of the film, with a view to directing, but left the project in May 2010,
“Based on JRR Tolkien‘s The Hobbit, is the story of Bilbo Baggins, who is seen in Lord Of The Rings trilogy. The Hobbit follows Bilbo as he first encounters Gandalf. He is somewhat unwillingly swept off on an adventure to the lonely mountain to rid it of the dragon, Smaug. The dragon is guarding a treasure of enormous value that he had firstly taken from the dwarves who once lived there. A major battle shortly, ensues.”
The Hobbit comes to theaters November 2012 and stars Cate Blanchett, Saoirse Ronan, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee. The film is directed by Peter Jackson.
