Del Toro pretty much confirmed for The Hobbit.

So nothing is exactly official yet but theonering has pretty much “confirmed” that Del Toro will indeed be the new director to the Lord of the Rings prequel barring anything unforeseen. So far, he has yet to work on the film yet however, due to a frustrating delay going on (I’m looking at you WGA). In my own humble opinion, I’m pleasantly surprised. Sure, Peter Jackson set the bar pretty high but Del Toro has also made some pretty spiffy movies so far. It would be interesting to see this movie envisioned through someone else’s eyes for a change. Del Toro’s recent project, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, looks to be solid as well. Let’s cross our fingers eh?
