Studios Want Jackson to Direct THE HOBBIT!

Since Guillermo Del Toro bowed out of The Hobbit films rumors have run rampant about who will take over the job.  Now, according to Deadline New York, top brass at Warners and MGM are doing their level best to talk Peter Jackson into helming the flix.  Though some little birds have been telling us that this may just be cover for Jackson interest in returning to the franchise, after the disappointing critical and financial performance of The Lovely Bones.

Other directors currently being considered are David Yates, David Dobkin and Brett Ratner.  One of the reason for this underwhelming list is financial.  The project already has much of its gross points accounted for, making it less attractive to true A-Listers.
