The Hobbit Ready to Start Casting, Filming in November?

Deadline New York is reporting that Peter Jackson--at an event talking up the new King Kong attraction at Universal Studios--said The Hobbit's scripts are both submitted, and that casting will begin in earnest ASAP, with filming to start in November.

I noted that some folks are saying this means a 2011 release for The Hobbit... but honestly, I can't see it.  Director Guillermo Del Toro has already said that filming will last over one year (unless he's reconsidered), and I'm sure post-production will last long enough to push the release to 2012.
