Guillermo Del Toro On "The Hobbit" Can't Post

A new interview with GDT has a video and text about his upcoming task with "The Hobbit". He says:

"I am very excited, very nervous. It is very daunting. I think it is a responsibility. It is like being handed the keys to the nuclear button."

In relations to working with PJ, he noted:

"I always try to work closely with the producer. I try to have limits creatively so I can define my sandbox"

Big Job [In reply to] Can't Post

It is hard to imagine what it would be like to be handed this responsibility. It isn't just about fan response. The Hobbit / LOTR is a cultural phenomenon. Assuming the very public responsibility for the next major addition to this historical process would probably feel awesome. You would need supreme confidence in your abilities to take on such a load.
It must be reassuring to be working closely with the team that carried the load through the greater part of the journey. But it must also be scary to try to live up to their success.
