A long-expected party: Guillermo del Toro to helm ‘Hobbit’

As has long been rumored, Hellboy II: The Golden Army director Guillermo del Toro has signed on to direct Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh’s two-part production of The Hobbit for New Line-MGM. You can read the AP story here.

Shooting could begin next year, with the films coming out in 2011 and ’12.

Del Toro is expected to move to New Zealand, where Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed, for the next four years — but not until after he wraps post-production on Hellboy II.

Guillermo del Toro is going to Middle-earth — and he’s taking us back with him!
