Sam Raimi directing The Hobbit Can't Post

Given all recent info, I'm thinking this will actually happen. Albeit with the Jacksons' + Phillipa's script, Shore's score, WETA's effects and Howe's and Lee's designs.

Jackson has committed to producing the WW I film, to directing Tintin, and still has some work to do in The Lovely Bones.

New Line's posture has turned to "involve Peter creatively some way". Raimi has been sistematically rejecting several projects offered to him for the past months. I read somewhere (I lost the url, sorry! Crazy) that he was actually just waiting for The Hobbit matter to be settled to decide his future plans.

I say, after analyzing all this, and taking everything into consideration, that Jackson (meaning Jackson's team) executive producing and Raimi directing will not be all that bad. If you think about it, the real problem about not having Jackson was going to be the change in look and general feel to the movies. I do not see that happening if the creative team is still involved.

It worked for The Empire Strikes Back... and let's face it, Peter may have been the glue holding it all together, but it was the collective work that gave us Middle Earth. Maybe and just maybe keeping everything constant and adding Raimi could be positive.

Right now, I believe an announcement is imminent, but for some reason, I do not see the signs pointing towards Peter directing (I am not even sure he really wants to) yet, I do see the movie taking shape as a true complement to the existing trilogy. The difference? The man in the director's chair.

Let it be heard! We want Jackson for The Hobbit!
