Sam Raimi & The Hobbit?

Sam Raimi to direct The Hobbit???
No waaaayy near convinced THAT would be a good idea.

".....In an upcoming interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mr. Raimi offered words like these: "First and foremost, those are Peter Jackson and Bob Shaye's films. If Peter didn't want to do it, and Bob wanted me to do it — and they were both okay with me picking up the reins — that would be great. I love the book. It's maybe a more kid-friendly story than the others."

"...more kid-friendly..."
.... dear God, he would neuter the story. Nice and fluffy

Dark is good
Brooding is Goooooooodd
The feel of creeping evil is gooooOOoOoOodd
There are no good movies that are nice, fluffy and "kid-friendly"

New Line, dont you dare!!!!! Dont you f..... DARE!!!!!

Dont get me wrong, I like Sam Raimi - especially the Evil Dead trilogy but NNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Horses For Feckin Courses!!!!!
I have joked before about getting Tarantino to direct The Hobbit... it would be a hell of alot better than Raimi.

An appeal to any multimillionaires out there who are mad Tolkien fans and have a few bob lying about.
Buy New Line!!
Knock a few heads and get a director for this project that can handle it and not turn it..... Disney. YUcchhh

OHhh MYYYY GOD...... Itll be a musical!!!!


The Horror! THE HORROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

see you all later :) Ash Nazg
