So it looks like various rights holders to The Hobbit would like for Peter Jackson to film it after all.

That’s a shame.

Because I was thinking, when it looked like he wasn’t going to be the guy for the job, that there’s an obvious replacement to helm the Hobbit movie.

Someone who’s cut his teeth on a variety of fantasy projects recently. Someone who’s worked with major stars. Someone who knows how to drive the hollywood publicity machine. And certainly someone who is a “name” amongst the geek community.

You were so close, Uwe Boll … so close!
