Links for you: Some Hobbit rumors and who the heck is going to play Sinatra?

The Writers Guild of America has set a February date for its 2010 awards ceremony. The WGA also announced the timeline for the awards. [Variety]

Rumor has it that The Hobbit will be a trilogy. Meanwhile, Peter Jackson wants the film to be in 3D, while Guillermo Del Toro isn't too interested. This might be a case of there actually being too much of a good thing. [Empire]

Is Sony actually considering a Hancock sequel? Director Peter Berg hinted at the possibility: "[Sony Pictures] would like to fast-track it, but Will's busy, I'm pretty busy. We're excited to do one, but we want the script to be right and the movie to be right. We don't feel a burning imperative to go right back into it." Here's hoping everyone stays busy.

Who will play Frank Sinatra in Martin Scorsese's upcoming biopic? If Scorsese gets his way it'll be Leonardo DiCaprio (I love the kid, but please, not again), the studio wants Johnny Depp, while Sinatra's daughter and one of the film's executive producers, Tina wants George Clooney. Let the inevitable backlash begin. [The Playlist]
