The Silmarillion movie Can't Post

I know it has been discussed on the forums before but I just wanted to say this about PJ doing the Silmarillion at some point.
I think that Peter and his team are doing a fantastic job with the Hobbit and it has not been too big a disappointment to me, but I really think he and his team hit their stride with LotR and in that frame of mind, I don't think the Silmarillion should be filmed.
It is a great piece of writing and I think it is sacred and should be left alone if it can't be done justice and right now I don't know if it would be.
The Hobbit is great and not the let-down that many fans were afraid of, but look at it's reception and awards record and box office compared to the trilogy. Not quite the same is it?
Nor is it received by fans in the same way either.
I think the Lord of the Rings was Peter Jackson's crown jewel and after finishing the Hobbit, he should go on filming other movies of his choice and leave J.R.R Tolkien alone.
Even as much as I want to continue going to Middle-earth in theaters, I just don't feel it's right.
