Guillermo: "No Pressure" Can't Post

Guillermo del Toro has claimed that he is not feeling any pressure working on highly-anticipated Lord Of The Rings prequel The Hobbit.

The Hellboy director told Radio 5 Live's Simon Mayo that he isn't worried about matching the critical and commercial successor of Peter Jackson's fantasy trilogy.

He said: "Frankly no. If I live the experience like that I would go insane. I don't know if there's a compartment in my brain that just doesn't register those things. I feel an enormous responsibility but not to the results, either by Oscars or box office."

He continued: "I have an enormous responsibility to a book I adore and to a legacy of a world. Creatively I feel very responsible and very daunted, but honoured, doing this."

Del Toro admitted that preparing the epic two-movie adaptation of JRR Tolkien's novel has been demanding: "I go to work at 9am. We open The Hobbit office 9am to 8pm. We are working on the screenplay [and] designing creatures at WETA.

"The first movie, if it stays on schedule, comes out 2011. The second movie 2012, Christmas time."

The story reported on Radio 5 Live can be found at Digital Spy.

"Do not come between the Nazgul and his prey"
