Sam Raimi Happy To Helm Hobbit, Spider-Man 4 Obviously Going Ahead

Yes, that was an ugly headline. Sort of on purpose. Honest. I don't use helm as a verb, I swear.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Sam Raimi said the following:

Peter Jackson might be the best filmmaker on the planet right now. But, um, I don't know what's going to happen next for me right now. First and foremost, those are Peter Jackson and Bob Shaye's films. If Peter didn't want to do it, and Bob wanted me to do it — and they were both okay with me picking up the reins — that would be great. I love the book. It's maybe a more kid-friendly story than the others.

Yeah, he might be, Sam. And you might be too. I'd certainly count you both in the 99th percentile.

Matt Telmach, Sony's President of Production is quoted as saying:

Listen, we're making Spider-Man 4. Our hope, dream, and intention is to do it with Sam. But I don't have a crystal ball.
