Peter Jackson discusses The Hobbit at Comic Con

Peter Jackson made his very first appearance at Comic Con to promote District 9, which he produced. At the beginning of the panel, he began by talking about The Hobbit, and progress with the project to head off all the questions the audience would have. They are writing the script and about 3 weeks from giving it to the studio to look over and approve. No actors have been signed as of yet. He also explains why they are doing two Hobbit movies.

My favorite moment of this clip from Rope of Silicon is at about the six minute mark when Peter takes out his camera and takes a picture of the Comic Con audience, asking the guy in the back to smile. "This is a moment to remember for the rest of my life."
