for years after LotR, in several forums. The problem is, that it took years for the project to actually see daylight. Several months passed, for example, after the source made his/her "guarantee" before the studio agreed that preliminaries should proceed. So, the timing could have become impossible for Jackson to direct, given his other obligations; GdT could have suddenly become available and interested; Jackson could have changed his mind; many things could have happened not foreseen by the source (or Jackson himself, for that matter) in December 2007.
As I recall, he said he wanted to...
Yes, I agree that the source was unfortunately immoderate in his/her language, but I can easily imagine that it could have been the intention of everyone involved at one point, and impossible some months later. These things happen.
