Peter Jackson "Bored With Films"
This is not good news: director Peter Jackson is getting into video games and finds movies less and less interesting. I don't mind his finding other creative outlets, but he's "bored" by movies? Just when he has the power and ability to make anything he wants, from the Temeraire dragon books to "Lovely Bones?" He could at least make "The Hobbit" while Ian McKellen is still young enough and before he hangs it up for good. Besides, Jackson was just getting good, since most of his pre-LOTR movies were scattershot at best. It's not like he's so completely mastered the medium that there are no challenges left for him. Besides, I want "The Hobbit."
