Jackson to Produce Two Hobbit movies
Seems like Newline and Peter Jackson have settled their differences according to bbc.co.uk . The film company has announced that Jackson wil produce not one but two films based on the Lord of the Rings prequel novel. Two? Hobbit 1: There and Hobbit 2: And Back Again , perhaps? "I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us," said Jackson. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle-earth." No director(s) have been announced. But what's the betting Neill Blomkamp, the guy was supposed to direct the ill-fated, Jackson-produced Halo movie, is in with a shout after he polished off District 9 .

BBC Yet To Commission More Sarah Jane
Despite the show getting record breaking viewing figures on the CBBC channel, The Sarah Jane Adventures has yet to be given a greenlight by the Beeb for a second series, Russell T Davies revealed to Newsround . "We hope it's coming back, we don't know for definite," says Davies. "We're preparing for it. We're writing scripts. Liz [Sladen] is very excited, we're raring to go. So hope and pray that it does return, because I love that show and I think it should run and run." It'd be strange if the show didn't come back considering the controversy over the future of children's TV - the BBC would have to come up with a very good excuse for not recommissioning a show that was a critical success, a ratings success, and fulfills their remit for quality programming.
