Re: New Line has license for 'The Hobbit'

No.

I couldn't get the AICN.com page to load so I read the article on EW (don't know if they are the same) but the comments by Kirsten Dunst about how a Spider-Man 4 movie would fail without her?  I don't think so.  Her part was one of my least favorite in SP 2 and it's yet to be seen how she'll do in the 3rd film.  Without Tobey?  Ahhhh...I don't know.  Maybe, maybe not.

I will admit, though, that I think a SP movie without Raimi would be unwatchable...in the same way a Middle Earth movie would be unwatchable without Peter Jackson.

I donno. Now that I think about it, I'll bet you can swap the two for the respective projects. Both have the same kinetic energy sense.

I absolutely loved Master & Commander, but I still can't believe they haven't yet ironed out things with Peter Jackson and just made the goddamn movie.

Looks like we can still keep our fingers crossed.

Tons of news with Raimi to direct and Peter Jackson to produce The Hobbit.  Here is a link: 

http://www.iesb.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3042&Itemid=99

From the OneRing.Net comes the following (along with the link above)
Don't believe everything you read but this story makes a lot of sense. It also seems that Bob Shaye may have been hinting at this yesterday when he said, "I really respect and admire Peter and would love for him to be creatively involved in some way in 'The Hobbit.' " Notice he didn't say he would "direct" the film but did say "involved in some way".

and from the LA Times:

Thoughts? Do you want PJ to direct or are you ok with Raimi directing and Jackson producing?

After spidey 3, I'm not so sure I'd like that idea....although as long as Jackson is creatively involved, Weta has the visuals, Walsh is on the script, and the two Ian's are in the cast then I'm ok.
This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons.

Aaah.  No. 

At first thought, if Jackson and Walsh wrote and produced and Weta did the visuals then someone else directing might work.  But on second thought, no.  Those novels are too important to me and after what Jackson was able to do with LOTR it's unacceptable to me that someone else would get to do the Hobbit.

Sounds good as long as Jackson is involved in some way...

Wait a minute. Aragorn wasn't even in the Hobbit. If they start messing with the plot it will end up as bad a Indy 4 will be.

I'm assuming it would be a cameo of some sort--such as, they randomly run into him in the woods along the journey.

Do you know how ******* old Strider is in The LOTR? 87.

Actually, now that I look into it, he would be only 10 when The Hobbit takes place. So even if Aragorn did show up, Mortensen definitely wouldn't be back. And he couldn't even play his own father, as he had died when Aragorn was 2.

So it looks like Mortensen is definitely out ... unless they wanted to really screw with the timeline.

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the conditions between Jackson and New Line may be getting better.
