There’s some interesting stuff in Quint’s interview with Peter Jackson at AICN today.

Basically, Jackson explains that… and this is hard to believe… nobody at all has ever even phoned him to ask him if he’s interested in directing The Hobbit. He’s filling up his work calendar, MGM’s talking about making the movie in a couple of years, and nobody’s bothering to check to see if he’ll do it.

And frankly, when I hear him talk about how much he would alter the story if he did do it, I’m kinda hoping they give it to someone who will stick with the story that Tolkien told.
