Peter Jackson has denied rumors of his agreement to direct the Hobbit dilogy. As he said in an interview with Empire, while he is only a producer and scriptwriter of the project.
`` There is a lot of gossip in the press that the 'green light' movieing will be given in the coming days, but week after week, and there is no progress yet. As far as I know, lawyers work very intensively. Warner Bros. around the clock trying to find a way out of the difficult situation in which MGM found itself. As you know, this company is moving towards bankruptcy, and in such a way that the hell of bankruptcy will turn out to be the Hobbit. Here's Warner Bros. and is trying to save the project from bankruptcy before the studio goes down. It's all so hard that I don't want to stick my head in there yet, "Jackson said.
As a reminder, MGM's creditors are due to approve the studio's bankruptcy proceedings on October 22nd. Quite possibly, representatives of Warner Bros. will try to get all rights to the project before that date.
It was previously planned that the shooting of The Hobbit will begin in January-February 2011.
