Weir versus Raimi for Hobbit?

PeterWeir.jpgWow, there's more big rumours out today as another Director is touted to take on The Hobbit. Peter Weir, the Director of Master and Commander.

Okay, so first up the warnings. This is from one of those insiders, and when AICN tell you to take it with a pinch of salt, well you'd better seriously think about grabbing a shovel. So it's heavy, heavy rumour at the moment, but you know what? You could see this fitting.

There isn't much in the way of story to this, other than an insider wrote to AICN, which I found through JoBlo, and explained who he was and how he would know this news before emparting the knowledge, or the wind up. Who knows.

Have a think about it though, Peter Weir is a very strong and talented Director, and he's created some excellent films, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World and The Truman Show being his last two.

Could Weir do The Hobbit justice? Is he a better choice than Raimi?
