I have just read the alert from onering.net... I canīt believe it. Itīs been a huge surprise. I really thought they will never reach an agreement.
I canīt wait to see who will be in the cast.

I read it on yahoo earlier - at last!   They haven't come out and said that PJ is directing, I'm still hoping he might be. I wonder how they're going to split this into 2 films?  And, like everyone else, I'm waiting for the casting.  Ian Holm said he's too old to play Bilbo, didn't he?

Yes, I think he did, and he is, a bit. PJ might still direct. We just have to wait and see.

I just read something that said the schedule is subject to the writers' strike. Let's just hope that is over QUICKLY before it can change anything.

Hugs,
Rach

There's actually a fair chance PJ might direct the SECOND film, anyway!

Take a look at this interview with an official of MGM, the studio doing these films with New Line.

This is such good news.    I wonder how many producers also direct their films;  didn't George Lucas produce and direct the original Star Wars?

I think he did. I have to say I liked the first three best. *ducks slings and arrows

According to Celebrian, Variety says Sam Rami will direct the first film. As longs as PJ is involved, I'm ok with that. Mr. Rami sounded like he had his head on straight about PJs expertise on the subject.

I know I should be excited....but Sam doing The Hobbit....sigh.  His style is not PJ's.

Sorry to be a party pooper.

Awww...don't listen to me, Elizabeth. I am sulking because it looks like PJ isn't going to direct...and to me...it would be better to wait until he is free to concentrate on it.  And part of me got fried with all the rumors and hype previously....so I am kind watching this thing warily.

I enjoyed the Spiderman movies, but shudder to think of those type of special effects in The Hobbit.

Ah well...I could be wrong...maybe whoever directs will be great and we will wonder how we could think anyone else could do as well.

Well, I haven't seen the Spiderman films so that wouldn't affect my view of it. DId Sam Rami direct them?

I'm just glad PJ's involved and it's going to happen!

Has it been confirmed officially that Sam Raimi is going to direct? I'm not really fond of that, to be honest. The type of films Raimi has done up to now, do not appeal to me at all. On the other hand, I'm sure that PJ won't work with someone unless that he/she can bring his vision to screen. So as long as PJ is involved, I'm confident that the films will have the right look and feel.

Rach, yes, Rami did direct the "Spiderman" films.

Considering the kind of films Peter Jackson made before LOTR, I'm now a little reluctant to make judgments about any director who's being considered to direct The Hobbit.  Certainly people were very skeptical about Peter directing LOTR because he was considered a "splatter" movie director...that is, if people had heard of him at all.  There are two other directors being considered, but I'm confident that Peter, et al, will choose the person they feel will do the best job.

Peter will be the Executive Producer and he has been given complete creative control.  I think we can be sure it will still be Peter's movie.

Sam Raimi has a temperament similar to Peter.  He's hard working but laid back.  He's greatly loved by all the cast and crew who have worked with him and he's done a lot of fantasy films.  And very important is the fact the he and Peter are already friends.  I don't think there will be the ego problems that might occur if one of the more volatile directors is chosen.

I think we'll just have to trust Peter.

If Sam Raimi directs the Hobbit, for me isn't going to be a problem since he is the same director who did the Spiderman films, which I enjoyed a lot.

I'm pleased that PJ is also involved in the project. I'm looking forward to see the Hobbit at the movie theater.
