The Hobbit

Peter Jackson has publically announced that he will not be directing the new film version of The Hobbit. Apparently Wingnut Productions and New Line Cinemas are in a lawsuit over the earnings from The Fellowship of the Ring and New Line have therefore contacted Jackson to say that they are actively seeking applicants for the directing role elsewhere. While it's possible that the film will still be fantastic it does suck that we won't see a Jackson version of it. I can see him making a fantastic film and one that would have the advantage of continuity with the film trilogy. Still, the Lucas prequels sucked (in my opinion, not my Dad's) so perhaps it's just as well.
