Warner Bros. and MGM Threaten Peter Jackson With Brett Ratner
Warner Bros. and MGM are heavily pursuing Peter Jackson to direct the ‘Hobbit’ movies, now that Guillermo Del Toro quit the project. Jackson co-wrote the scripts but does not want to direct the film because he is “too busy.” So now Brett Ratner’s name is being thrown around, presumably as a negotiating ploy to convince Peter Jackson to either direct the film, or have it ruined. Too harsh? Have I mentioned that I have it on VERY good authority that Brett Ratner is a gigantic douchebag. At least I openly admit my biases.
