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.

If PJ can't direct then someone with Raimi's qualities seems a next best option.  My concern is no one can have the same vision all the time though and in a difference of opinion it seems to me the director would have the authority to overrule a producer.  I think like you say, we'll just have to trust in Pete Jackson's judgment.

At this point the most important thing for me is who will be in the cast...

I think both the director and the cast are miportant, but like Yeux said, PJ was considered a splatter film director before LOTR. He came through with flying colors, of course, because he had, always, a genuine love of the material.

He still does, and I think we just have to trust him at this point. as far as I'm concerned, he's earned that.

I don't know for certain how that would play out, but I do know Peter has been given "complete creative control" so I'm guessing in a difference of opinion, his would be the final word.

One of the reasons I'm hoping Sam Raimi gets the directing job is because I think Peter and Raimi would be much more likely to see eye-to-eye than Peter and either Alfonso Cuarón or Guillermo del Toro.  I wonder how soon a director will be chosen.

I think it's great there's a real discussion about The Hobbit at all because at one point, it wasn't happening.

Exactly! We are fortunate to be getting the film with PJ at all! It certainly seemed to be derailed for months! I trust PJ! He IS the producer so he was at least instrumental in choosing Sam.

Pj knows what he's doing in relation to LOTR. I'm going to concentrate on that.

PJ knows exactly what he's doing.  Sam Raimi can obviously direct well, and with Peter's exerience of this kind of thing, and his creativity, it should be a great film, or series of films. I wonder how they are going to split it into 2?

The second film is supposed to be taken from material in the Appendices. Now THAT should be INTERESTING! It opens up some great possibilities!

That would be very interesting. the appendices open HUGE possibilities and the writers could almost go anywhere they liked with the story.  Sadly it still lets out Frodo and Sam.

The fact that PJ put together people that didn't know each other for a massive project like LOTR, and all the actors came away with such positive feeling towards the project , well , I for one, think that PJ will again , find the right people for the characters.
I am so hoping he directs though. Produces is ok, but his flavor is all over LOTR..... by him incessently looking and checking the filming of the scenes.
So ...... I hope that he directs it..... theonering.net has a poll to ask who you think should direct if PJ doesn't, I couldn't vote for any of them..... it's just not natural ..... PJ HAS to direct.

I couldn't agree with you more, Frodo!  Here's hoping that things work out and PJ can direct and produce it. My cup would runneth over.

Well Culpie, I just read and heard Elijah in an interview , where the info is PJ won't direct the Hobbit,  but there is only hope at this point that he will direct the second movie, which will bring us from the Hobbit to Frodo with Bilbo.
But I have the PERFECT director for the Hobbit, if PJ doesn't do it........
and the onering.net didn't even have him........... if everyone is burying the hatchet, here is hoping that RON HOWARD will be looked at to direct. He directed "WILLOW" and even though that wasn't a commercial success, it had the flavor that PJ could use for the Hobbit...... I so wish , HOPE that PJ or whoever is the one that is trying to pick a director, that they look at RON HOWARD........ he's AWESOME!
