NO on Neil Blomkamp - NO NO NO!!!
Gimme a break. He directed one patchy, uneven, pretty dull action/splatter movie. That's it.
I'll be seriously angry if that twerp gets his mitts on The Hobbit. He doesn't deserve it.
My list (some):
Jane Campion (This woman really understands mythology (The Piano) atmosphere, character & landscape (Bright Star - best film I saw in 2009). Why not a woman?
Neil Jordan (As you can see I prefer a mature take on this material - we missed out on that for LotRs with PJ at the helm, but there's no reason why The Hobbit shouldn't have a mature feeling to it - it tackles war, death, and other huge serious themes)
Neil Burger (The Illusionist)
Duncan Jones (Moon) - (Now here's a debut that has intelligence, warmth, style & stays focused and on target the whole film. Give him a shot!)
Stephen Poliakoff (The Lost Prince) Really gifted playwright & film director. I've had him in mind for years.
Andy Wilson - He did a great job with "Gormenghast" ten years ago. I'd give him a go!
Just some Fresh ideas - I'm sick to death of seeing the same list of 5 boring names.
