"Gandalf – we mean, Ian McKellen – raised Tolkien fans’ hopes recently when he said he thought Peter Jackson would return to Middle Earth but now, the Oscar-winning director has quashed all hopes of a Hobbit trilogy follow-up."
Probably just raising hype for the next movie as "the final one".
Yeah George Lucas said that too.
He did for Episode III and HE's not directing VII...
No more Tolkein films of Peter Jackson's, anyway. Like Bond, I wouldn't think it impossible for them to branch out beyond the books to keep the franchise chugging along forever. What Warner really needs now is for Peter Jackson to direct the Green Lantern movie we deserve to have by now.
Great because truth be told you could not make a coherent film from the unfinished tales and whatever other bits and pieces Tolkien left laying around.
Never say never.
Thank god. I haven't been able to muscle my through a single one of these movies without falling asleep. Same goes for King Kong. Maybe it's Peter Jackson(?)
