The story that’s popping up all over almost every blog I’ve read today: New Line has kissed Peter Jackson’s ass enough so that he’ll come back to executive produce The Hobbit and an unnamed sequel to The Hobbit. (My vote is for Hobbit 2: Electric Bugaloo) Jackson, however, is looking unlikely to actually direct the movies. Sam Raimi’s name is being tossed around, which after Spiderman 3, isn’t a name I’m so excited about anymore. (Of course, I doubt there’s any director I’ll be happy with that’s NOT Jackson.)
Still holding out for more money before agreeing to appear in the movie: the singing Dwarves.
