Peter Jackson perturbs blogger

And that blogger is me.

I just saw this tweet from Felicia Day:

“@NikkiFinke: RT @DeadlineNY: URGENT: Peter Jackson Negotiating To Direct ‘The Hobbit’ Films”ooooo!

What the hell? A few years ago, Jackson wanted nothing to do with directing another Tolkein-inspired movie, and now he’s negotiating?

I have no doubt that, if this does come through, it will be full of excellence. The problem is that my spider-sense is tingling hard. It feels like Hollywood Bullshittery, a kind of bullshittery I have no taste for.

Yeah, I don’t want to taste that.
