I was going to post "I wouldn't", but then realised I couldn't really justify why not. I would have said "I just don't think it would suit his style" but then someone would have said "you would have said that about Jackson before LotR" and then Crowley would have come along and said "AND I'D SAY IT AGAIN" and then we'd have got no-where.



Woosh.

I'd still like to see him try. There certainly aren't many directors these days that can craft a genuinely good, big budget Hollywood film.

Michael Bay might be about perfect, given that Tolkien's battle descriptions are the literary equivalent of a Bay action sequence.

Looks like Guillermo del Toro (who directed Pan's Labyrinth) may direct The Hobbit.

This is good news.

He directed Children of men. This pleases me greatly. Maybe I can enjoy a tolkien classic on the screen now without idiotic editing and stupid directing. Sorry but he should have stuck to Bad Taste tbh/
Will debase self for credits.

Don't worry, if it's anything like the quality of direction on Pan's Labyrinth it'll be good.

Isn't Sauron the nastiness in the Forest? Years since I read the book.
