The Hobbit - Peter Jackson Or Not?
I'd been meaning for the last week or two to look into whether or not Peter Jackson would be making "The Hobbitt" or not. Last I had checked, he had no plans to do so until at least after King Kong. Yes, it was quite a while ago =)
Well, I found a web site that has all kinds of interesting information regarding the movie, and there's been a lot of news very recently.
MGM says Peter Jackson is making the movie. New Line says they're looking for a new directory because Peter won't do it until the law suits are settled. If you didn't know, Peter had to sue New Line to get his share of the profits from the movie. I'm not sure about the details of the law suit.
Apparently, the rights to produce The Hobbit revert back to producer Saul Zaentz at some point in the near future. Mr. Zentz, whom you may remember produced the 1977 animated "Lord of the Rings" directed by Ralph Bakshi, is apparently friend with Peter Jackson and in a recent interview said the Peter will produce the movie but will likely wait until the rights revert back because he's fed up with the studios (New Line) because of the lawsuit.
