Finally one of the best bits of news to come out of Hobbit land since Guillermo del Toro’s stepping down as director of The Hobbit prequels. Peter Jackson, who I had wished would have been helming this project from the beginning, has decided to take over. Neil Blomkamp was in talks to direct but Jackson has done the smart thing and stepped in and is in current discussions to get the two films into theaters for 2012 and 2013 respectively.
All I can think to say is VICTORY, I dont know if its because I have been catching up on my Entourage before the season 7 opener on Sunday or the fact that I have been thinking of the Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine, Pele masterpiece Victory. Either way I am ecstatic to share this news with you. I knew that this would be a great movie but now am confident that this will be an even greater film thanks to Jackson in the directors chair.
What are your thoughts?
