  • That's a shame. He would have been good for this.

      • I'm actually glad he left. He can now move onto other projects that actually interests me.

        • Wow, that fucking sucks. There might be a silver lining though. Who knows, maybe Jackson will take the reigns.

          Although, something tells me, we're not gonna get these movies period.

          • That sucks. I was hoping for a good movie adaption of the book.

              What's been mentioned by Jackson so far is this project will go ahead..even if he has to direct himself. Unfortunately he has two movie he's in contract to do before hand so he's on the lookout for a replacement. It all sucks but it's hard to fault Del Torro's decision...he just wants to make some movies.

                I wouldn't be surprised to see Jackson take the helm.

                You can't blame Del Tor for jumping ship. He has other movies he needs to do, and by the looks of it he has quite a few projects to choose from.

                Who knows, by the time MGM sort their shit out Jackson probably would've completed all the other films he's contracted to do.

                Just don't hire Sam Raimi.

                        I can't help but think del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness would have stood a much better chance of getting made had he directed the Hobbit films.

                          One thing's for sure, he would've had a bigger budget to play with. It was the perfect scenario. He makes two great Hobbit movies that rake in a ton of dough then he gets rewarded (ala nolan with inception) by getting to make an epic film out of "At The Mountains Of Madness" complete with a 100 mill+ budget and an "R" rating. This whole thing sucks.

                            My thoughts exactly. He may have done himself a grave disservice by not sticking it out.

                              But what's the guy supposed to do. Sit on his ass doing nothing for the next 1 to 2 years while MGM get their shit together.

                              It's a crappy situation but he's a filmmaker and needs to get onto other projects.
