Yes, but not too long a wait... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think PJ and Fran and Phillipa did a truly superlative job with LOTR (in spite of its flaws, because *nothing* is perfect) and I trust them. And, I want continuity with their vision and style with the next two films. My first choice would be for PJ to direct "The Hobbit" and "The Segue."
But if its a longer wait than, say, three years, I'm afraid that some of the wonderful actors that I'd very much like to see reprise their roles (even if in brief, cameo appearances) may have passed beyond the confines of this world. For their sakes (and ours) it would be better to start filming sooner rather than later.
Plus, I'm impatient with all the delaying nonsense that has been going on thanks to New Line (grumble) and want them to get on with it!
Even more, though, what I want to happen is for PJ to be just as eager and emotionally invested in these next two films as he was in LOTR. If he doesn't feel that way, though, then perhaps Fran would or some other new director that respects PJ and would enjoy working with him. It is corny to say this, but film-making is an art and the feelings of the film's writers and directors have to be very passionate for it to come alive on-screen. It can't just be "another film" to the director, it has to be his or her passion.
