I think PJ was the right choice for The Hobbit.

GDT was working on At the Mountains of Madness a by H. P. Lovecraft, but a ratings despute with the studio got the project scratched... GDT wanted an R rating and the studio insisted on PG-13 ... would have liked to se that one!!!


The issue for me was always which Del Toro we were going to get. The "Hollywood" version is still a good blockbuster director but not IMHO on the level of Jackson with LOTR and Kong, lacking in the same level of drama and awe.

A mix of that version and the "spanish" Del Toro was I'd guess what people were hoping for, a blockbuster with the depth and beauty of something like Pan's but aimed more at a family audience.



Not Kow Towing to the Studios demands is why he bailed on The Hobbit .... he was going to make his movie not what they told him to and didn't have the clout to make it stick..

No reflection on PJ either ... he has enough clout now to get what he wants for the most part and could pick and choose his battle more than someone like GDT

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
