Hobbit Will Film For 370 Days

We have some information regarding the timeline for The Hobbit thanks to the following interview excerpt provided by our friends at the movieweb:

When does filming for The Hobbit begin?

Guillermo del Toro: It will begin in 2010 and we will shoot for about 370 days or so…

At what age did you first read The Hobbit?

Guillermo del Toro: I believe it was between 10 years old and 11 years old. My first copy of it is dated as printed in 1973 and I know I bought it shortly after being published by a great publishing house called MINOTAURO which was (in my childhood years) like the CRITERION COLLECTION of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror.

For the rest of the interview please go to the source article.

This is going to be a year and a bit of non stop filming in Middle Earth. I would love to get onto this set and would try my very best to steal a suit of chain-mail. I don’t know what the hell happened to all the armor/weapons from the first LOTR, but If any of you work in a warehouse that stores this shit – feel free to mail some to me. In exchange I will give you my eternal thanks and 2 pints of my blood.

I am excited about this film very very much and am glad that the wheels have begun to turn on this bus. I am interested in seeing Del Toro’s imprint on this story under the supervision of Mr. Jackson. I have high hopes for this team up and am wondering if the collective will cause something even greater that the sum of all parts.

Smaug’s days are numbered.
