I saw this earlier today.  I wonder who they'll get to replace him, or if the movies will even get made now.

hence the delays...

Crud, another big film company of our childhood probably about to go the way of the dodo.

Rumors are Peter Jackson just might direct it.  I'm hoping not. I'd like to see something a bit more fantasy like this time.  Jackson, while good, was just too realistic.

Just a thought since Alice in Wonderland is out today.  Could you imagine what the hobbit would be like if Tim Burton directed it?

Ah that just bites! I hope the films don't get shelved. I wouldn't mind Peter Jackson directing though, I thought he did a great job with LotR.

Not sure how Helena Bonham Carter would look as a Hobbit.  Cuz, y'know she's got to have a role in ALL of his movies, even if she shouldn't really...
