Though I am very happy to see some information about this subject, I doubt this movie will occur. The time has passed too much for it. They would have done it around Lord of the Rings, but maybe I'm wrong. They may do it.
"In his own online statement, Jackson said that New Line executive Mark Ordesky, who shepherded the Rings trilogy, argued that New Line is dumping Jackson because the studio has a "limited time option" on the film rights, obtained from Saul Zaentz. "
i heard that the guy who owns the rights kinda wants the limited time to expire so he can offer the film directly to jackson
The issue I'd have with someone other than Jackson making them is that all those clips and things from the LOTR trilogy that had something to do with The Hobbit will be ruined, unless they replicate the sets and things.

I really hope they do make the movie. However, like Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, they've taken so long...and I get pretty doubtful over whether or not the movie will actually happen, but--I'll keep on praying!
