Say It Ain’t So, Guillermo!

Step back, please. There’s going to be some fiery language.

You have been warned.

Mother-f#cker!

Guillermo del Toro is leaving the Hobbit. One of the elements that actually got me excited, something that promised more than what we saw from Lord of the Rings, something that promised the kind of fairy tale darkness that is needed for the Hobbit is gone.

Why?

Because nothing is certain with the Hobbit. The whole MGM bankruptcy bullshit has now leaked into this.

I guess I don’t blame him. Dates that were firm are now questionable. And Guillermo has a lot of projects he can get going on.

The only silver lining in this cloud is that Guillermo continues to contribute to the screenwriting process. At least something of the beautiful genius I saw in Pan’s Labyrinth might make it to the screen.
