The Hollywood Reporting is, well, reporting that Guillermo Del Toro is in talks to direct the two installments of The Hobbit. Del Toro is certainly best known for his visually stunning and critically acclaimed film Pan’s Labyrinth. He is certainly a fantasy-centric director (he’s also helmed both Hellboy films, the 2nd of which is due in theaters soon).
What do you think of this possibility? Tell us in The Hobbit Film petitions!
