"The Hobbit" Greenlighted

MGM, which Sony has recently acquired, plans to co-produce the project with New Line, which co-owns 'The Hobbit' film rights and financed Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' films.

MGM boss Harry Evans Sloan said he hoped the 'King Kong' director would helm 'The Hobbit' which, according to Variety, could be filmed in two parts.

The director has in the past expressed interest in bringing the story of how Bilbo Baggins (uncle of Frodo, hero of 'Lord of the Rings') managed to get the One Ring from Gollum.

Could be yummy if Jackson signs on and his team does the script.

I thought the Hobbit was already made? There was a preview for it at least a year ago that looked good, and it was supposedly going to be released this Christmas. weird...
