New Line: ‘Peter Jackson will not direct The Hobbit’

20 11 2006


In a letter to Lord of the Rings fansite,, Peter Jackson states that New Line has decided to not let him direct The Hobbit due to an unresolved lawsuit that Wingnut Films (Jackson’s production company) has filed against New Line.

This is really a disaster as Peter Jackson is what made the vision of Lord of the Rings to come alive, and his production company created a fitting world for Lord of the Rings. It’s sad as I think that many of the actors in LOTR will refuse to return for The Hobbit and the planned LOTR prequel should someone else other than Peter Jackson direct it. And I can’t imagine a place as Middle Earth better than New Zealand. This is a wreck in the making.

But I will still be there day one. :(
