Howard Shore Returns for The Hobbit


The Province has some good news for “The Lord of the Rings” fans. Composer Howard Shore told the newspaper that he’ll be back for both The Hobbit films…

And now it looks like Shore is going back to Middle Earth with Rings director Peter Jackson. The long-awaited two-part movie adaptation of Tolkien’s The Hobbit is in the works.

“We’ve talked about making these movies for many years, at least since 2002,” Shore says.

“It looks like finally it’s going to be happening. I’ll be working on it for the next three years — it’s going to consume a lot of my time and work now.”

The first film is scheduled to hit theaters in December of 2012, followed by the second in December of 2013.
