An anonymous reader writes: Peter Jackson has announced that The Hobbit is being made. The story will be in 2 films, and shot simultaneously like Lord Of The Rings. Filming is set for 2009 with the first part expected for release in 2010. "A decision still has to be made on who will direct the films, who will be cast and where they will be filmed."
