He tried and he walked out.

I don't know if he tried offering this to someone else after GDT walked out. We don't know that, we don't know what happened in between, we can only speculate. I'm fairly happy with the trilogy and i hope that doens't make me a non Tolkien fan. You can be both Tolkien and PJ fan AND like the movies along with the books. To me it's not a tragedy. I majored in English ages ago and my favorite discussions were always comparing books to movies. I'm not that 100% happy with what i see in the Hobbit, but if i liked the trilogy, i'm sure i won't have that much of a problem with the Hobbit. I hope.

Sorry wanted to add one more thing. To say it's a negative impact is a matter of personal opinion. To me it's not that negative. I like both movies and books. Neither made me like less the other. I don't know if that made sense.

I like Peter Jackson a lot, but I am certainly not grateful for him making these films. I wish he had let someone with a better sense of both film and Tolkien take them on.
