Will the original writing team return? [In reply to] Can't Post

To be honest, I was hoping that del Toro would have more of a hand with the script writing with less input from the original team. Now, I am in awe of the visual accomplishment that the filmmakers achieved with these three films. But with each installment of the LotR films, I felt they unnecessarily deviated from the story more and more in an effort to make the story mass marketable. I think it cost the films integrity and eliminated some of the major themes of Tolkien's work. The dialogue for Gimli, Merry, and Pippin was entirely 'cutsie" and written in a failed attempt to be comical. The death of Saruman in the extended version, and the entire ending of the book being eliminated from the film is a major flaw that is attributed to the script writers (unless the Producers made them do it, in which case I apologize).
