    It's official. Peter Jackson, the director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, is returning to Middle Earth. Jackson has officially agreed to collaborate as a producer on The Hobbit and The Hobbit 2, the franchise prequels that will be directed by Guillermo del Toro. It had been speculated for months that both the Rings writing team and director would return to oversee the prequels, but New Line did not confirm the information until now.

    Jackson, alongside Fran Walsh and Phillipa Boyens, wrote the screenplays for the three films in the Rings trilogy. Jackson and Walsh will serve as executive producers for the pictures, which cover the 60-years between The Hobbit and the first film, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings.
