    The 50-year-old Oscar-winning director in 2011 produced The Adventures of Tintin, the performance-capture blockbuster directed by Steven Spielberg that has earned $331.3 million worldwide. Now the New Zealander, whose The Lord of the Rings trilogy grossed more than $2.9 billion, is working on one of 2012's most anticipated films: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. On his return to Middle-earth, Jackson packed 3D technology -- Red Epic cameras on 3Ality rigs -- and plans to film entirely at 48 frames per second.
