<p><a href="http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=3&id=41230" target="_blank">SciFi Wire</a> spoke with Sam Raimi, director of Spider-Man 3, and asked him what his involvement in The Hobbit was. Here's what Raimi had to say:</p><blockquote><p><em>On speaking with New Line Cinema president, Robert Shaye...</em>
"I spoke to him once, so it's a little more overblown I think. That's why I don't want to pretend that it's bigger than it is. I had one conversation about the possibility of it, and that's really where it's at."</p><p><em>On his thoughts about Peter Jackson's involvement...</em>
"I'd have to know that [Peter Jackson] was OK with it. It's really his picture and Bob Shaye's picture."</p><p><em>On how official his involvement in the film is...</em>
"The truth is, I just don't know what I'm going to do next, that's the most honest answer I can give you. And I can't honestly say, even though I have spoken to Bob Shaye, that I don't know that I could honestly say that anything's been offered to me until some time in the future, because, it just wouldn't be exactly right. Or true."</p><p><em>On how he would direct The Hobbit...</em>
"I haven't had any of those thoughts yet, because I think it's still Peter Jackson's project. It would be so premature. I'm so overwhelmed with my own insecurities, I can't take his on just yet."</p></blockquote><p><a href="http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=3&id=41230" target="_blank">Click here for the entire article</a> </p>
