Pete Jackson booted off the Hobbit

I was dissapointed to hear that Pete Jackson has been booted off the Hobbit by new line.

How is that gonna work anyway? Gollum was done by weta digital which is owned by Jackson so the chances of gollum being the same are slim.

Bummer......whoever they get better do a good job.

Yep, but there is also again news from MGM that THEY are considering doing the film with Jackson...
It's stupid from New Line Cinema, after earning almost 3 billion dollars with the LOTR movies, that they don't give Jackson a proper chance (because of a lawsuit). On theonering.net you can find the details, from a mail from Peter Jackson himself.
