Guillermo del Toro will be the one new scribe for The HobbitGuillermo del Toro will be the one new scribe for The HobbitEntertainment Weekly is reporting that Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens have all finalized their writing deals For The Hobbit and it's sequel/LOTR prequel. The writing team is exactly the same as it was for The Lord of the Rings, except for the one addition of del Toro, the director of The Hobbit.

With the films to be released during Christmas 2011, and Christmas 2012, writing must get started soon to begin filming them next year. It took the writers a couple of years to finish the scripts for LOTR, so I imagine there will no uncertain sense of urgency in getting these done ASAP.

Let's hope for an engaging and true-to-the-book script that new fans and old fans alike will love...
