Jackson and Silmarillion
Pyro Flame

Jackson's doing the Silmarillon would be a desecration of all that is Tolkien, in my opinion. You see, The Silmarillon IS Tolkien. From everything the greatest literary artist of all time did, Silmarillon was his life. It began with his birth, and still grows today, in the imaginations of all Tolkien fanatics around the world. In short, the Silmarillon is what makes Tolkien immortal. On that point, I say, there are three ways to be immortal. Physically, Spiritually, and in the minds of others. The Silmarillon is what makes him who he is. He is the Silmarillon.
