While we can’t imagine the pain of dumping two years of unfinished work, a sinking studio is no home for your version of a pair of epic fantasy films. Frankly, we were never that hot on you directing The Hobbit in the first place. The only reasonable choice for that job, in our opinion, is a relative newcomer who doesn’t have quite as signatory a mark and can ease into the world created by Peter Jackson. Either that or Jackson himself (which is looking more likely.)"
