Guillermo del Toro, director of the acclaimed Pan's Labyrinth (and the meh Hellboy), is set to direct the two Hobbit movies for Peter Jackson and New Line.

Looks like there will indeed be a Hobbit film and Peter Jackson is in (although not as director, at least not yet). The deal includes another film to be made that takes place between the end of The Hobbit but before LOTR. (via crazymonk)

Update: The NY Times says that Jackson will not direct as he is already booked for the period in question.

Another one of those lists you love to hate: the 25 best movies you've never seen. Putting the horrible Boondock Saints on the list is a major boner, especially just ahead of Peter Jackson's pre-Rings gem Heavenly Creatures.

From what looks like an informative andJan 30 2007

From what looks like an informative and insightful blog on film, two posts: one on planimetric composition or "mug-shot framing" in films (you may have seen Wes Anderson using it) and the other is an update on The Hobbit movie and Peter Jackson's involvement (or lack thereof) with it. The Hobbit item is old news, but it fills in so many blanks left by traditional and typical online media coverage that it's worth the read if you're at all interested in the subject. (thx, ajit)
