The Hobbit Movie has a Director

And he is Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth), a proven genius with a tendency toward darker films. Peter Jackson, of course, is producing. WETA workshop in tow.

J.R.R. Tolkien's Hobbit is the most light-hearted of his Middle Earth fiction. I'm wondering if that more boisterous, children's book-feel will be maintained with Guillermo del Toro at the helm. If I had to guess, I'd predict toward a more epic, less frivolous Hobbit.

All I know is I intensely enjoyed the rich dark(ish) fantasy world in Pan's Labyrinth.

I expect this will lead the movie to become a couple tones darker than the book, but I'd rather have a PG-13 or Rated R Hobbit movie than none at all. ;)
