It is 99% confirmed that Guillermo Del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) will helm the film version of The Hobbit with Peter Jackson producing. I wish Pete was directing but Guillermo is a great second choice. Earlier rumors had Sam Raimi attached to the project. I'm a Raimi fan but I just don't see him as a good choice for the material and Spider-Man 3 left much to be desired. I know that Guillermo can handle it. He's proven it with Pan's Labyrinth and I'm sure he's going to raise the bar in the new Hellboy flick.
