Chance Open for Peter Jackson to Direct The Hobbit


New Line Cinema's honcho Robert Shaye has indicated that there are talks being held between the studio and Peter Jackson to mend their relationship in "The Hobbit."

Well, this no doubt should be a tidbit that "The Lord of the Rings" fans would be very pleased to read of.

New Line Cinema, the studio currently holding rights to the fantasy franchise, recently showed its indication to repair its deteriorating relationship with Peter Jackson, which was due to ongoing dispute over share of profits from the first "Rings" film "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001).

Studio founder Robert Shaye has revealed to the Los Angeles Times that talks have been made to Jackson through his reps for his return to the series to lend hands for "Rings" trilogy prequel "The Hobbit" that the filmmaker previously announced not to helm because of the case.

"Notwithstanding our personal quarrels, I really respect and admire Peter and would love for him to be creatively involved in some way in 'The Hobbit,'" Shaye admitted.

Meanwhile, a report from Stuff.co.nz informed that Ian McKellen, who played Gandalf in the trilogy, had remarked there was no doubt that a rumored reprisal of the role in the project would be discussed with Jackson and Fran Walsh. Looking for confirmation, the site has contacted Jackson's spokesman and obtained quite a positive answer from the person saying "Peter and Fran have always wanted to 'The Hobbit' but whether that happens is yet to be decided."
