The Timeline Guy
- May 27, 2004
I really hope he ends up doing it as opposed to someone else. I'll go see it either way, but at least with Jackson directing I'll be much more at ease about the film's outcome, considering the LoTR movies just plain rocked, especially given their epic tone. I honestly enjoyed the Hobbit more as a book, and given that its a bit more adventurous and action packed in comparison to the entire LoTR trilogy, I look forward to its translation into film. I just hope its done with tact, talent, and a respect for the original work while still making it an interesting and engrossing film. And thats why I most preferably want Jackson doing this movie...I already know he's perfectly capable and will do all the things I'd like with this movie...something that isn't granted or maybe even likely with a different production team/director. And God only knows if the actors from the LoTR movies (at least the ones required, like Ian McKellan as Gandalf, or Hugo Weaving as Elrond) will reprise their roles without Jackson (or even with in some cases). We'll see...
