New Line Cinema has given “The Lord of the Rings” fans, who want to see director Peter Jackson return for The Hobbit, some hope. Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, studio founder Bob Shaye commented on the matter:

Eager to move ahead with “The Hobbit,” New Line has quietly been trying to mend fences with “Rings” filmmaker Peter Jackson, who has sued the company over his share of profits from the first “Rings” films. When asked if it was true that company insiders had been in talks with Jackson’s reps, Shaye replied, “Yes, that’s a fair statement. Notwithstanding our personal quarrels, I really respect and admire Peter and would love for him to be creatively involved in some way in ‘The Hobbit.'”

According to, Ian McKellen also said there was no doubt that a rumored reprisal of his Gandalf role in a film version of The Hobbit would be discussed with Jackson and [Fran] Walsh.

The site contacted Jackson’s spokesman, who added: “Peter and Fran have always wanted to ‘The Hobbit’ but whether that happens is yet to be decided.”

Well…if its true, i’ll be in line to see it!

  1. I completely agree. Its like a Spiderman movie without Sam Rami. It can be done, but I don’t see it being as good as if the person who put their blood sweat and tears into it before. Look what happened to X-Men: The Last Stand when Bryan Singer left to do Superman Returns and Brett Ratner pick up the reigns.

  2. Really! And, these sequels are more like another part of each movie…that’s like having someone write a book, and then someone else write the ending. It just doesn’t work as well.
