There and Back Again, a 'Hobbits' title by New Line Cinema?

Part one of Peter Jackson\'s "The Hobbit" trilogy, an adaptation of J. R. R Tolkien\'s 1937 novel "The Hobbit."

The films are an adaptation of the 1937 published J. R. R. Tolkien' fantasy classic "The Hobbit."

Confirmed cast for movies so far include Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Saoirse Ronan, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Rob Kazinsky, Aidan Turner, Peter Hambleton, John Callen, Jed Brophy, Mark Hadlow, Adam Brown, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis, Mikael Persbrant, Sylvester McCoy and Elijah Wood.
