The Hobbit Scripts Are Ready !

In an exclusive interview with Moviefone UK Peter Jackson has confirmed that the scripts for The Hobbits are ready and have now been delivered to the studios for final approval.

"We've just delivered the script. Literally last week, we delivered the second of the two screenplays -- the first draft. So the studio's got both scripts now, which is a milestone; and if anything was holding it up, it was us doing the screenplays, because we'd just been writing as fast as we can, but it took us this long to get them finished." (Peter Jackson to Moviefone UK)

Peter Jackson also confirmed that no actors have been signed yet as production is still waiting for the final greenlight from the studios, but they are hoping to make some announcement about the cast in the middle of the year . Funny fact which is also revealed in this interview is that The Hobbit has never been 'officially' announced by MGM , there fore the whole project is not really delayed. This is really great news ....tonight we are a step closer to Middle-Earth . Stay tuned for more news soon Hobbits.
