I’m not quite sure if this has become big news just yet, but according to Empire Magazine, Guillermo Del Toro and Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit has changed a little bit.  Instead of having the first film in 2011 tell the tale of The Hobbit and a second film in 2012 connect The Hobbit with The Fellowship of the Ring, Del Toro and Jackson have announced that The Hobbit will be split into two films.

Great idea, if you ask me.  I wasn’t really sold on having new tale bring us into the world of Fellowship, regardless if it was taken straight out of the appendices or not.
