First off, who the hell are Marketsaw and what are they smoking? Additionally, can I have some? Okay, so this site called Marketsaw claims to have received word that Peter Jackson will indeed direct The Hobbit -- split up into two different parts -- and that both films will be shot in 3D. Yup. Marketsaw. And the reason why we believe them is because most of their text shows up in these annoying red and green colors. They say they're "100% SURE that this is happening." We don't know who they talked to or how they acquired this information, but the site says an official announcement should be coming soon.
Apart from the two Hobbit films in 3D, Marketsaw also says Jackson will revisit his Lord of the Rings trilogy and convert all three over to 3D and release them between 2012 and 2014. If true, of course, this is the most unbelievable news, like, EVER! But we have no idea who these people are or where they're getting their information from, so for the time being you'll have to consider this a giant rumor. As recently as October, EW reported that tensions between New Line and Peter Jackson had lowered to a simmer, after both sides had been tied up in legal wranglings for well over a year. In that time, names like Sam Raimi had been tossed around The Hobbit project, but nothing official hit. We know New Line wants to make The Hobbit, and we know the fans want Peter Jackson to direct it, so could it be that both sides finally found civil ground and Jackson was given the go-ahead to split up the films and make them in 3D? I hope so. And if this does turn out to be true, kudos to Marketsaw for breaking the news we've been waiting to hear for a long, long time.
