Can't see that happening until Christopher Tolkien dies, he's been very vocal about his dislike of the way Peter Jackson handled his father's work, so I wouldn't expect it this decade anyway!

OH **** me can't he just let it lie. sorry all you hobbit fanciers but personally i'd rather see PJ making Another gorefest or even Heavenly creatures type stuff, a great director that is being severely compromised.
Even a Dr who episode, just not more middle earth bollocks. I l;iked Lord of the Rings but after 15 years of the same shit for gods sake do something original, the hobbit has destroyed his creativity.

Same as George Lucas - they both should make a 90 min small film rather then big epics all the time

Difference is Peter Jackson can direct films, George Lucas can't

Watch lord of the rings Soviet Union style .

https://www.theverge.com/tldr/2021/4...J9ByrGzmSf-Qoo

First few pharagraphs

The long-lost Lord of the Rings adaptation from Soviet Russia is a glorious fever

Like found footage from a hobbitís camcorder


The 1991 made-for-TV film features glorious low budget special effects and shonky costumes.
You may think youíre familiar with The Lord of the Rings, but nothing can quite prepare you for an adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkienís classic fantasy text made in the Soviet Union.


The made-for-TV film first aired on Leningrad Television in 1991 and was thought to be lost to time, as first reported by The Guardian. But the stationís successor, 5TV, recently unearthed a copy from its archives, and uploaded the entire work to YouTube in two parts.

LOW BUDGET SPECIAL EFFECTS AND SOVIET MOOD MUSIC
With a running time of around 1 hour and 50 minutes, this adaptation focuses only on the first book of Tolkeinís trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, and is a riot of low-budget special effects, bizarre camera work, and Soviet mood music.

Rather than the epic Hollywood fantasy captured so well by Peter Jackson, this adaptation feels like a weird fairy tale told by a pipe-smoking madman in the woods. In other words: it captures a completely legitimate aspect of The Lord of the Rings, just not one weíre necessarily used to.
