While I assumed the recent lawsuit from the Tolkien Estate would again put the breaks on any chance at The Hobbit, it looks like things are still coming together. No, unlike all the last updates, this latest report has nothing to do with who will direct. Since music was no doubt an important factor in the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, it comes as no surprise to hear that the powers that be have decided to go with LOTR composer Howard Shore.

Howard Shore to Score The Hobbit

I have Shore's entire [LOTR] trilogy on CD somewhere and used to get a lot of my work done while listening to it. There are tons of greats including, one of my favorites, "A Journey In The Dark". Considering that I'm a huge fan of his work, I'm happy to hear AICN report that he will be returning back to the franchise.

Towards the end the audience had the opportunity to ask some questions. One person asked about his involvement in THE HOBBIT. Mr. Shore replied that he is involved. Apparently he has been working on ideas since working on the THE TWO TOWERS.

For Mr. Shore it will be the first time he will be working with Guillermo del Toro.

Shore has got to be feeling pretty amped after being replaced halfway through King Kong by James Newton Howard.
