19848546 story The Hobbit Finally Starts Shooting 233 Posted by Soulskill on Monday March 21, 2011 @01:21PM from the victory-after-all-i-suppose dept. Tiger4 writes "Warner Bros. has announced that production has officially begun on Peter Jackson's movie adaptation of The Hobbit. Jackson even posted a couple of pictures of himself on one of the sets. This despite the strikes, bankruptcies, contract disputes, and legal actions that have swarmed Jackson and the project since his Lord of the Rings days. Admit it, secretly you've been dying to see this happen."
