There is only one PJ [In reply to] Can't Post

It has to be Peter Jackson!! This tale started with him and it should end with him... It doesn't matter how many directors names you throw in the hat PJ is and the only director that can see this through the rest are just mere mortals....

I don't know about that. [In reply to] Can't Post

The fat guy that directed the three Lord of the Rings movies was replaced. They been passin' off some skinny dude without glasses and half the sense of humor.

This is true [In reply to] Can't Post

If PJ directs another two movies there will be nothing left of him in the end...

No. This tale started with J.R.R. Tolkien, and he's the only non-mortal really involved in the telling. ;) // [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes. We are all involved in the telling of this tale. [In reply to] Can't Post

So I hope they do the fan credit thing again with The Hobbit. I would feel the need to sign my name again.

As I said before [In reply to] Can't Post

I would only want Jackson directing these films if he legitimately wanted to, and if he is able to get some wiggle room with his other commitments (second Tintin movie). As touching of a sentiment as it would be, I don't want him to direct them just because of some sense of obligation to the fans in light of GDT's departure. I also don't want him to direct these films simply in order to "protect WB's assets." The reason why LoTR is such an endearing trilogy is because it was a labor of love. Say what you will about those movies, but they were a product of dedication and passion by everyone involved.

I don't want Jackson to feel like he HAS to make these movies, for whatever reason. But if he can get to a place where he says, "You know what? I really want to make these movies," then I'd be on board.

It's funny, though. Jackson, for me, would be the safe choice. He is not my first choice, but I have absolutely no idea who I would get to direct now that GDT is gone. It's like I keep telling myself, "I'd be fine with Jackson, but I'd really rather have.....uhh..."

End rant.

totally disagree!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I totally disagree. Anyway, having P Boyens and F Walsh along with PJ as a screenwriters how can you expect the final product to be significantly different from the interpretation of Middle Earth seen in LOTR? Not to underestimate the director's role

why not?? [In reply to] Can't Post

True! But seriously why shouldn't he direct it? Let's just forget all we know about the financial background of it and all that stuff and think logically. He made an incredibly successful film out of the LOTR, most fans loved it, earned a lot of money, even this webpage is designed around his interpretation of Middle Earth. It's like you were trying to come up with another part of The Star Wars produced by George Lucas but directed by some unknown guy. WHAT FOR?
I think they should stop this nonsense, establish that PJ is going to direct as a natural consequence of the LOTR trilogy and concentrate on having it greenlit and start pre-production asap.
And lived happily ever after :)

Any great leader [In reply to] Can't Post

becomes a slave to his charge... and Peter's proven to be a great steward of Tolkien's stories. Poor guy. It looks like fate has taken him hostage again ;) I'd really love to see him or Fran or someone from the LotR days take on in co-directing. I trust Peter to make good decisions and not just grasp at straws about this... but having one more anxious period of upheaval about this Project/Quest is such a drain on enthusiasm.

We've waited for so many years with no good movement. Petitions, protests, threats and power-trips seemed to keep the hope of The Hobbit happening bouncing like a volley ball. But Peter persisted and we finally got our hope that The Hobbit would be filmed and by him and his representatives. We had GdT join the family and all was better than well. Now this. More torment because of film company legalities and business struggles. I

I believe the movies will happen. There's no way Peter would let this story die... but the torment is getting very old. And I know it's so much harder on him than us, fersher!

So much drama... and they haven't even started filming yet!

*sigh*

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
