Apparently Peter Jackson really is looking to get the band back together with regards to the creative team for his upcoming take on THE HOBBIT.

The Province is reporting (via ComingSoon) that composer Howard Shore, who scored the previous three LORD OF THE RINGS films, and even won an Oscar for both Best Score (FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, RETURN OF THE KING) and Best Original Song (RETURN OF THE KING), is set to score THE HOBBIT.

At this point, this is the only new news that we’ve heard out of Jackson’s camp since giving us the onslaught of casting news that he gave us a month or so back. 

Now, while I wasn’t a massive fan of the LORD OF THE RINGS franchise, I did absolutely adore the franchise’s respective scores, so this does bode massively well for the upcoming dual film project. He’s a great composer, and is yet another piece to the puzzle that is THE HOBBIT, and adds to my interest, based on the fact that it will indeed be one groups collective look at the legendary fantasy series. Count me in.
