'The Hobbit' Gets Its Greenlight! *Heck yes!!!* Who else is stoked?

"The Hobbit" has been greenlit and will start production in February, an individual close to the production has told TheWrap.

As TheWrap reported previously, Peter Jackson has agreed to direct the film in addition to producing and writing the two-part project.

In the agreement completed this week, Jackson's deal was finalized and MGM and Warner Brothers agreed to give the project its long-awaited greenlight.

The greenlight means that millions of global fans for the revered J.R.R. Tolkien property can look forward to a prequel to "The Lord of the Rings," which was one of the most successful movie franchises in movie history.

  • Yipee! They did a great job on the movies for the trilogy - as well as they can ever do turning classic books into a film. If Peter Jackson is in charge, and they get the WETA Workshop involved, I'm thinking we'll have another favorite to add to the collection.

  • They don't even start filming it until February 2011.

  • Totally! I'm so glad Peter Jackson is doing it. I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy and I just couldn't imagine anyone else behind the helm (The Hobbit).
