December 2012 is the release of the first part of The Hobbit.The second part is due for release in December 2013 and has been titled "There and Back Again".Directors have not changed,I understand there has been a general strike in New Zealand by film production staff that has delayed production. If you visit Peter Jacksons Facebook page you can see some photos and comments on there.

"Directors have not changed"

Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) was attached the direct, but walked away from the project a few months ago. I believe Jackson was always going to be the Producer, although wouldn't be surprised if he himself stepped into the directorial role if there's no-one else to do it.

I love the book, but am not really that interested in the film. One of the best bits about the book is that it's short and concise, whereas you know both parts of the film will add up to a 5 or 6 hour monster.

I don't really understand why this is being filmed AFTER L of TR when it is the logical starting point.

Because LoTR was a trilogy, meaning you do one, you get two guaranteed sequels, loads of money. You then wait a bit, and pique interest again with a prequel.

And LotR is a better story than The Hobbit...

I actually prefer The Hobbit overall because it doesn't have so much baggage or droning as LotR, plus it's a simpler plot of basically a bunch of dwarves (and Gandalf, for some reason?) going to steal a big pile of treasure. LotR has far too many songs in it in Elvish which go on for bloody pages, and far too much "they walked... they were hungry..." and the like.

And I still think The Hobbit would work fine as one film, but then there's less money to be made that way.

True - but it's the baggage and droning that makes LotR a classic. The Hobbit was never meant for adults.

I always preferred the Hobbit, it had a sense of humour and a solid storyline. LOTR can get a little slow in the books. Not that that's a bad thing, it just has so many threads to the story, it takes a while to tie them all up!!
