This is the best day of my month.

CNN reports that The Hobbit is finally being made into a movie, by Peter Jackson. And that’s not all:

“According to a joint statement released to The Hollywood Reporter by New Line, MGM and Warner Brothers, ‘The two films based on ‘The Hobbit’ are now greenlit and will begin principal photography in February 2011, under the direction of Peter Jackson.'”

The TWO FILMS! Oh happy day! And…

“Ian McKellan and Andy Serkis are expected to reprise their roles as Gandalf and Gollum…”

This gives me something to celebrate from now until the film’s release. If they can find a reason for Viggo Mortensen to make an appearance…well, it will be all I can ask from Hollywood and from life.
