The Hobbit Pushed Back To 2012?

The other day an interview with Peter Jackson indicated that filming on the two “The Hobbit” films had been pushed back from March to sometime mid-Summer 2010.

Now it seems that delay could push back the film’s release. The Wrap reports that while the first film’s December 2011 release date is still officially in play, “it looks more likely to be 2012” according to an executive close to the film.

No word on how of if that would affect the second’s film release (could be a Matrix sequel style dual release over 2012, or an Xmas 2012/2013 release).
