Peter Jackson says Hobbit announcement coming 'sometime soon'

Peter Jackson made our morning—because according to him, the uncertainty over whether The Hobbit will finally get made, and whether he's going to be the guy who makes it, may soon be coming to an end.

In an interview with The Dominion Post, Jackson revealed that the troubles which have been preventing the start of filming are getting wrapped up.

Supposedly, Warner Bros. is "making progress untangling the MGM situation, so we should have certainty with The Hobbit sometime soon."

"Soon." We like that word.

And once The Hobbit situation is under control, Jackson says he'll have a five-year plan "that will keep many people very busy."

And us very happy. How about you?
