Hobbit Story Spread Out Over Two Movies

Earlier reports suggested that the two-part Hobbit movie (due out in December 2011 and 2012) would present the book in the first movie and a sequel in the second. Producer Peter Jackson and director Guillermo Del Toro have now confirmed that both movies will cover just the story of The Hobbit.

“We’ve decided to have The Hobbit span the two movies, including the White Council and the comings and goings of Gandalf to Dol Guldur,” says Del Toro.

“We decided it would be a mistake to try to cram everything into one movie,” adds Jackson. “The essential brief was to do The Hobbit, and it allows us to make The Hobbit in a little more style, if you like, of the [LOTR] trilogy.”

So there you go. The second film will not, as had previously been suggested, a film that will bridge the 60-year gap between The Hobbit and the start of Fellowship Of The Ring.
