Development on The Hobbit film

Kristin here–

Recently I wrote some comments on MGM’s announcement that it will co-produce The Hobbit with New Line Cinema.  Yesterday TheOneRing.net [1] posted a statement from an MGM executive declaring that preliminary discussions with “Mr. Jackson’s representatives” have started.   It’s hard to believe such an announcement would be made public if things weren’t looking very promising!
