So is Del Toro directing The Hobbit or not?

New York Comic Con went on this past weekend and there has been a lot of news coming out of there regarding Hollywood and it's products. One that peaked my interested was this video of Guillermo Del Toro talking about him directing The Hobbit movies. Previously, we had reported that he was indeed going to helm the next installment of the Lord Of The Rings franchise but an official word has never been given. But watching this video, it seems like he's been putting in work to arrange everything to work for him and all we're waiting for is the green light. Lets keep our fingers crossed as we wait these next couple of days, as Del Toro explains that we'll be getting some answers within that time frame. I got him to respond to one of my questions now I wonder if I can get him on one of our podcasts? Nyup!

I saw the riddle Del Toro left the on TORN. I have no clue what it means tho.

"A riddle for you all-

Half familiar, half unknown.

A thing it is, ¨It almost is-¨

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

The day of the moon will be
when all is revealed to thee
Questions will cease
Answers will please
We´ll learn of the Shire
and all you desire.

At ten minus Three.
Joining to be
Ten minus Eight
Add to the slate
of the two dozen princes
that die without winces.
And add to each day of
the week. "

His Saturn and the End Of Days project sounds really interesting though.
