Looks like Guillermo del Toro's Hobbit movies are moving ahead as planned: Production Weekly now reports that they will begin a 14-month production schedule in June.
The publication's Twitter feed @prodweek also posted that the films will shoot as expected in New Zealand.
The news comes after word that casting had begun in earnest.
Last month, producer Peter Jackson told us exclusively that he and his co-writers were working on scripts for two Hobbit films, based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien.
