New Line and Jackson Settle Differences for Hobbit Films

And Jackson and Fran Walsh will executive-produce the two films The Hobbit and a sequel.

But who will direct? Why isn’t Jackson slated to do that himself?

  1. That always happens. Like Tim Burton does “Nightmare Before Christmas” but then lets he assistant do “James and the Giant Peach” while Burton sits there in his cushy office with his kooky hair and Sellick does all the work and everyone remembers it as a Burton film, when all he does is “executive produce” which means all the perks and money and none of the hard work.

    Too fancy pants to direct now, huh Jackson?

    Well I still own Dead Alive. You don’t fool me Jackson. I knew you when you were using sockpuppets for rabid monkeys. You didn’t have any fancy smancy CEEGEEEYE then did you?

    If he had any real heart he’d do The Hobbit the oldskool way and use MIDGETS dammit. And then they’d kill and eat the midgets, the way they used to, back in the Wizard of Oz days.

    Think about it, how often does a really good midget or dwarf role come along? Willow? Then the next really big one, Burton uses one friggin’ midget for every role. Midgets who have waited their entire lives waiting for the remake so they could get work for the whole family and nasty uncle joe, they could all be an Umpa Lumpa. But no, he gets one guys to do it all.

    Dwarves who stood in front of mirrors doing Gimli solilliquys until they were hoarse, and for what? For Jackson to use a frigging NORMAL SIZED GUY and CGI?

    Well, at least they used midgets for Samwise and Frodo, I’ll give him that much. But he needs to use them in the Hobbit. Give Tom Cruise a good juicy role to chew on for once. Short people are just the same as you and I.

    Sorry, I get worked up about this.
