According to Mainichi News, the Hunter x Hunter movie was announced to be premiered on January 12, 2013. The title is "Gekijyoban Hunter x Hunter' Phantom Rouge". It will be an original story and is likely to be related to the Phantom Troupe arc.
Well we know why he took his hiatus after he acknowledged he shouldn't after the new anime started! As for the movie being about the Phantom Troupe, I hope this movie highlights some of the members that don't get the spotlight until the Chimera Ant Arc such as Feitan,Bonolonev, and Kortopi but more Chrollo/Shalnark is always welcome XD

I just want to know from manga readers if this series it even seemingly remotely close to ending.
I really can't stand the constant hiatus's
Most likely not, but the series did recently close a big part of the story. You could say it enters the second half, just like One Piece. Togashi is very unpredictable, it´s hard to make such statements about the series.

Reading these news, I doubt it's gonna return before the movie airs, but it's still good news, it's canon after-all. I bet it will return after the movie airs, Mars maybe? the month it ended in this year? i think so.
Fiji said: They mentioned that this movie features the murder of the Kurata clan... so I think this would be awesome. I don't know how will they incorporate battles with Kurapika as a protagonist though.
Anyways, this is gonna be awesome.
I thought it might be about the floor masters when I read the first news, there's still a chance for another movie though, but being about the past is actually more interesting, so yea it's a must watch, too bad we'll have to wait another year to watch it.
