The proposed (and highly anticipated) version of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit will reportedly launch in 3-D.
The troubled project has gotten a number of challenges during the lead-up to its production, such as director Guillermo Del Toro leaving the project and parent company MGM’s financial troubles.
Nevertheless, sources have verified the two proposed film adaptations of The Hobbit will be made in 3-D, despite early statements made by panelists at the San Diego Comic-Con this season that this movie would remain in conventional 2-D.
It is predicted that the official announcement concerning production of the films will turn up in the next couple of days, along with reports indicating that Peter Jackson is actually close to formally signing on as a substitute helmer.
The very first Hobbit film is reportedly scheduled to be released on December 12, 2012.
