Yup, Peter Jackson!

Apparently the reason it took so long to get this one started was because New Line Cinemas was using some shady Hollywood accounting. Basically they made it so that each of the LOTR movies generated no net profit, and thus a bunch of people, including the Tolkein Estate and Jackson weren't paid what they should have been paid.

But I guess that's settled now, and I'm looking forward to some great movies in 2012... assuming we all live that long

Yes, Peter Jackson is directing the two Hobbit films. For those interested, Jackson has uploaded several behind-the-scenes production videos. Really interesting stuff.

Twas a cruel prank to play on us nerds letting this out of the gate a year before the movie comes out.
