Del Toro walks from The Hobbit!


This is bad news.  Arguably the most anticipated movie(s) of 2011 / 2012 J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, the earlier book from the same world visited in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, was going to be produced by ‘rings director Peter Jackson and helmed by Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth genius Guilermo Del Toro.  This was something that COULD NOT FAIL.

Well after legal ramblings over the rights with MGM and delay after delay to start shooting, it seems Del Toro has signed off the project.  Sad sad times!!  Now unless Peter Jackson himself takes over – this whole project could be dead in the water.  EPIC FAIL!
