IT’S OFFICIAL BITCHES! DEL TORO TO DIRECT THE HOBBIT FILMS!

We’ve been holding onto this hope as if it were the last cloth on our cold naked bodies. Besides Peter Jackson, only Guillermo Del Toro can bring these films to life. Remember when Sam Raimi (Spiderman films) was rumoured to be directing the films? Fuck. Imagine Hobbits going emo and doing broadway numbers in the middle of the film. That’s right. Fuck.

Anyhoo, it’s all official now. The project will span over 4 years. Oh and don’t fret for those who care, Mr. Peter Jackson will still be on board as a producer or something… But we all know he’ll have lots of input in this baby.

For those of who have no idea who Del Toro is, let me list his films: Hellboy, and the super-wonderfully-awesome-I-haven’t-yet-seen-but-have-the-dvd Pans Labyrinth. Yeah, that’s all I know…

The follow line pretty much sums up why his destiny is to direct The Hobbit.

A true original, Guillermo is a cinematic magician who has never lost his child-like sense of wonder.

Heh, child-like sense of wonder? Remind you of anyone great?
