(Newser) – Fans of Peter Jackson's Middle Earth flicks are about to have a lot more to love. The director has confirmed that he's going to split The Hobbit into three movies, Deadline reports. Jackson had dropped hints about such a move at Comic-Con. Of course, it remains to be seen how the director will squeeze that much screen time out of the Tolkein classic, which, unlike Lord of the Rings, consists only of a single, relatively short book.
