The Hobbit's Troubled 75-Year Journey From Page to Screen (Movieline)

I, for one, am stoked that this film is underway and as much as I love Guillermo del Toro, I could never imagine this film without Peter Jackson behind the camera. The article is really just a timeline of all the steps along the way to making this film - including the much hated animated version of The Hobbit, the myriad studios involved, and then, the happy ending. Take a peek.
