'The Hobbit' To Now Span 2 Films

Peter Jackson & Guillermo Del Toro talked to Empire about 'The Hobbit' and revealed that Lord Of The Rings prequel adaption will now span two films and that the originally intended bridging the gap between The Hobbit and Fellowship Of The Ring part of the film will now not happen.

“We’ve decided to have The Hobbit span the two movies, including the White Council and the comings and goings of Gandalf to Dol Guldur,” says Del Toro.

“We decided it would be a mistake to try to cram everything into one movie,” adds Jackson. “The essential brief was to do The Hobbit, and it allows us to make The Hobbit in a little more style, if you like, of the [LOTR] trilogy.”
