Max Payne
Default The Hobbit

http://movies.ign.com/articles/109/1093748p1.html

Guillermo del Toro's perfect job directing The Hobbit? Not so perfect, as it turns out. In fact, he's quit the gig.

"In light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming The Hobbit, I am faced with the hardest decision of my life," del Toro said in a statement on The OneRing.net. "After nearly two years of living, breathing and designing a world as rich as Tolkien's Middle-earth, I must, with great regret, take leave from helming these wonderful pictures."

While the filmmaker did note he will continue to co-write the screenplays (the J.R.R Tolkien novel is to be adapted into two feature films) with Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens, any chance of him returning to the project after rights co-owner MGM/UA finds itself a buyer (the studio put itself up for sale back in November 2009) is all but dead.

"I wish the production nothing but the very best of luck and I will be first in line to see the finished product," added del Toro. "I remain an ally to it and its makers, present and future, and fully support a smooth transition to a new director."

Wow. We'll update this story as soon as we have more details.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

There goes most of my hope that this would be as good, if not better than the original films.

But why did he leave? ;-; Contract conflict? Conflict of interest? Pants-on-head retardedness?

We’ve had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars, and lunatics making a string of catastrophic

people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V

Considering the fact that this had been announced since ages ago, I can't say I'm surprised anymore.
Well, at least he's writing. Compared to some of the other parts of the film crew, sometimes directors can mean very little in terms of the actual film itself aside from the general direction it goes in.

I didn't even realize this movie was in pre-production. I thought it would never come to furition (and maybe now it won't.)

The Hobbit sucks, though. I hated that book. :/

What?! Noooooo!

Honestly, though? I don't blame him for leaving. It's taking longer for these people to make the Hobbit as it is for Square-Enix to remake FFVII.
