These are pretty old [In reply to] Can't Post

The most recent is from April. The fact that nothing further has been said for 3 months makes me think that this isn't looking such a good idea to Raimi any more. And even back then, Raimi was saying he would only consider it if Peter Jackson agreed (which is smart, because the last thing he'd want to do is to draw the displeasure of the army of Jackson fans out there).

Plus, as Loresilme mentions, Ian McKellen is now making it sound as if Peter Jackson is definitely still a player. McKellen says there's "movement in the right direction" (as of just a week or two ago), so that sounds as if the situation has changed since the articles about Sam Raimi came out. Things move in mysterious ways in Hollywood, and there's still every chance that things won't work out the way we'd like. But I get the impression that cooler heads have prevailed and realized that PJ's Hobbit is a 100% guaranteed moneymaker, whereas anyone else's would face controversy and resistance. Especially if the original Gandalf wasn't involved, and I get the impression that he wouldn't be, unless PJ himself agreed that he didn't want to do the movie.

...and the sails were drawn up, and the wind blew,
and slowly the ship slipped away down the long grey firth;
and the light of the glass of Galadriel that Frodo bore
glimmered and was lost.
