Neill Blomkamp: not directing the Hobbit
Brett Ratner: not directing the Hobbit
Guillermo Del Toro: not directing the Hobbit
Peter Jackson: maybe directing the Hobbit?
watch as they get progressively geekie
You know who else isn’t directing The Hobbit? Everybody. As of now, nobody is directing and I’m fine with that. I feel like every time I read the news (entertainment blogs), there is a new article about who isn’t directing this movie. Is it possible that every day is a slow news day? I can’t imagine a world in which that is possible, especially since “Knight and Day” is in theaters.
Peter Jackson gave the world three movies about hobbits, fairies, wizards, etc. They won a ton of awards and the world got psyched because it indicated a geek uprising. Peter Jackson, who got his start on super low-budget gore films, hit the mainstream with the “Rings” movies and played a game of “let’s see what I can get away with” by remaking King Kong. Somehow, the world still loves him and demands MORE!
To that, I say “I don’t care”. I don’t care if this movie (/these movies) ever get made. Quit while you’re ahead. All of us geeks still have 2 more Harry Potter movies. Talk to us after that.
