The rumor mill has once more cranked up as to the possibility that the second HOBBIT movie will be split into 2 separate movies after Jackson himself expressed concern about the amount of material being left out of a single final movie:

“We’ve been certainly talking to the studio about some of the material we can’t film. And we’ve been asking them if we can do a bit more filming next year. Which I don’t know what would come of that, whether that would be extended additions or not. But those discussions are ongoing […] I’d like to shoot a bunch more material that we can’t shoot. There’s so much good stuff in the appendices that we haven’t been able to squeeze into these movies. That’s a discussion that we’re having.”

I can’t see why the studio would say no to a possible trilogy of HOBBIT movies, it seems like everyone else is doing it, HARRY did it TWILIGHT is doing it, and THE HUNGER GAMES will do it, everyone wins, the fans the studio, the theaters and the distributors and all with a minimal ad campaign for a sure-fire hit.
