The Hobbit and Peter Jackson Talked About by New Line Cinema

Shaye told the New York Times that he made those comments "in a moment of emotion"... but had no regrets, other than the regret of "losing a friend."

Interestingly, he declined to say whether or not The Hobbit would be made with Jackson, even though he made clear that he'd not work with him any longer. He also wouldn't say whether Spider-Man director Sam Raimi had been asked to helm The Hobbit.

Lastly, Shaye confirmed that there was no workable script yet for The Hobbit, even though he intends on releasing it in 2009. This is the first anyone's heard of any actual timeframe for the Lord of the Rings prequel... but with it's status so far up in the air we can barely see it, I'm not too sure two years is even realistic.</p><p>Don't forget to <strong><a href="/petition/">Sign the Petition</a></strong> to let the world know what you think about the possibility of Peter Jackson not directing The Hobbit!

If they don't even have a working script right now, I'm a little worried about them rushing to finish it by 2009. They have the deadlines of the rights returning to the original owner hanging over the head, and I'm worried we'd end up with a sloppy movie.

I so agree. I just can't see it being the quality that we see in LOTR without Jackson and rushed into. *crosses fingers in hopes of another great film*
