Peter Jackson Blacklisted

New Line's Bob Shaye has made it very clear that Peter Jackson is in his bad books.

In an interview to promote his own film, The Last Mimzy, Shaye said of Jackson, "I do not want to make a movie with somebody who is suing me... It will never happen during my watch."

So, that's the end of everybody's Hobbit dreams - this time, I'd bet, for good. To be honest, it's not something I'm too worried about. There's countless things I'd rather see Jackson do than another Middle Earth movie.

Considering that New Line is about to lose their option to make The Hobbit, I don't think the One Ring crowd has to worry.

They've got a good few months yet to get the ball rolling. I'd be very surprised if they don't at least try.

And this darn Jean Pierre Jeunet rumour won't die... so, maybe... just maybe...

We'll know before long, either way.
