The Hobbit Movie Update - Director Raimi, Producer Jackson?
The article can be read at IESB.net.
The credibility of that report is still in doubt, but interestingly, TORCer Moria_Dweller posted the following in the topic A view from the inside on the TORC message boards this Sunday:
"I emailed IESB.net regarding their source saying Raimi is directing. They actually responded and are pretty confident in their source."
Even more interestingly, IMDB.com had listed Sam Raimi as director, but (probably) in view of recent events, that bit of information has been taken down.Do stay with us for more updates as news trickles in.
