Peter Jackson talked with MTV recently (as we also noted in this article), and confirmed that filming The Hobbit in the first half of 2010 is still a go. Here’s what he said:
“Guillermo Del Toro is the director of ‘The Hobbit’ — we’re producing it for him — and I’m involved in the scriptwriting, which I love. Screenwriting is my favorite part of the whole process. I’m very happy being one of the writing team on ‘The Hobbit,’ and we’ve written the first script. It’s two movies, and we’ve written the first script, which the studio responded well to. And we’re now halfway through the second script.”
“At this rate, we’re on target to begin shooting the first half of next year.”
