The Hobbit in 3D?

New York Times is reporting that a source has revealed that The Hobbit films will be in 3D. The films are reported to be on the verge of getting the official green light to begin principle photography in January for a potential December 12th, 2012 release date.

Orobable director of the films, Peter Jackson, had indicated that the film would not be done in 3D, "Guillermo [del Toro] wants to shoot in 35mm, old-fashioned film," Jackson said, "which suits me, because he wants to keep it in the same space as the original trilogy".

It sounds like with Del Toro out, Jackson might have warmed up to using the latest 3D tech. This rumor remains unconfirmed but if true, let us all hope Jackson goes with Real 3D rather than the still pathetic post-production process that has plagued many other recent non-animated 3D films.
