del Toro Hotes Jackston Takes Over Hobbit

While at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, the ex-director of The Hobbit films Guillermo del Toro commented that he would like to see Peter Jackson replacement him in the chair.
“As a fan, I hope those movies get made,” del Toro told the crowd. “And I hope to God Peter Jackson directs them. They’re beautiful and they’re needed in the world.” The filmmaker said that, in his two years of work prepping for the Hobbit films, “we completely designed 98 percent of the first movie” as well as about half of the second one. The status of the project is currently up in the air, but various reports have suggested that Jackson is strongly considering directing it.
As per everything else surrounding this project, nothing definitive will be decided until MGM sorts its financial mess out.
