Confirmed: 'The Hobbit' Will Be Two Films
Cinematical is reporting that the Bobbit will be split up into two films

Jackson: "We decided it would be a mistake to try to cram everything into one movie. The essential brief was to do The Hobbit, and it allows us to make The Hobbit in a little more style, if you like, of the [LOTR] trilogy."
