Exciting news at MarketSaw regarding Peter Jackson DIRECTING The Hobbit Can't Post

Jim from MarketSaw, who slipped us his inside information a few weeks ago, has posted an update from his sources over in PJ's camp (mixed with some pretty good reasoning on his own part) regarding Peter Jackson directing The Hobbit.

You can read the entire entry at MarketSaw, but here are a few snippets:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We REMAIN STEADFAST that Jackson will direct The Hobbit. All indications were that he was to be super heavily involved and nothing has changed whatsoever.
What I have heard is that Jackson will wrap up "The Lovely Bones" with a nice bow and then turn around to Steven Spielberg and say that he cannot take the reins of Tintin until the third iteration. That is to say, Spielberg will work his magic for the first Tintin feature, Zemeckis (YES. Zemeckis is the name I heard!) will work his magic for the second and Jackson for the third.
"District 9" from what I gather will be temporarily back-burnered.
By delaying "District 9" shuffling the "Tintin" order somewhat (but still maintaining his contractual obligations), Jackson frees up enough time to shoot two Hobbit movies back to back and still get another Oscar (or ten).
There is simply FAR too much at stake to risk placing another Director in that chair. Jackson's credibility is on the line here bigtime. The Hobbit must not fail. If he screws up "The Hobbit" by hiring a figurehead Director who is torn between his own vision and that of the Overlord Producer - thats whats gonna happen! Jackson knows that. He will take full responsibility for the success and helm it. He would probably fire ANY director that took the job anyway, just as he did with actor Ryan Gosling. Its gotta be a perfect duo of movies and nobody can do it better than the man himself. Again, he KNOWS that.

Look for the Zemeckis announcement that he is directing the second iteration of Tintin.

Hope springs eternal Smile
