Del Toro Not Signed for “Hobbit” Films March 18, 2008 7:26 pm

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in Casting, Movies, News, The Hobbit, The Hobbit Sequel.

Contrary to prior reports, Del Toro has not yet signed up for The Hobbit and its sequel.  TheOneRing.net caught up with the director and offered his assessment of the situation.

Del Toro said the following: “At this stage anything I say is of no consequence for I am not yet signed to do ‘The Hobbit.’ Negotiations advance but are still ongoing.”

Del Toro added, “All I can say is that I am diligently going through all Tolkien material related to Middle-earth but only as a way of bridging a gap in my reading. I still respond the strongest to ‘The Hobbit,’ but as an avid reader of Mythology I find a lot of his other writings fascinating. A perfect Cosmology forged from very eclectic sources.”
