No 3-D for the Hobbit

In response to the recent 3-D craze (thanks to James Cameron and his upcoming Avatar film) there have been rumors that the Hobbit films could be in 3-D. The overwhelming reaction from Tolkien fans was "No thank you!"

In response, director Guillermo del Toro has said this: “I can safely say that, as of this moment, there are absolutely NO conversations about doing the HOBBIT films in 3D.”

Oct. 2010 UPDATE: Reports are now saying that both films will be shot in 3D.
