Guillermo del Toro discusses The Hobbit!

"I’ve heard some rumblings..."

Oh happy day, Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro would like to direct The Hobbit.

Speaking to EW, del Toro said: “I’ve heard some rumblings, but nothing official. I don’t want to think about it because it’s such an eventuality.” Del Toro told EW: “It’s the only Tolkien book I read. I tried my best to read the Lord of the Rings, the trilogy. I could not. I could not. They were very dense. And then one day, I bought The Hobbit. I read it and I loved it. So it would be a privilege. But listen, I wish I knew.”

He continued: “I met Peter and Fran when we were trying to do Halo. I think what they’re doing in New Zealand is amazing. What they’re doing, in terms of the way they approach filmmaking — the way I see it is, it’s Hollywood the way God intended it. Because it’s a filmmaker’s dream and a filmmaker’s facility. So it’s heaven. The question is: Will I go to heaven? I have no idea.”
