Looks like Peter Jackson won’t be Hobbiting just yet. Production on the Lord Of The Rings prequel has been delayed due to Jackson’s stomach trying to kill him. The director was admitted to the hospital with stomach pains which lead to surgery for a perforated ulcer.
Representatives say, “Sir Peter is currently resting comfortably and his doctors expect him to make a full recovery. Sir Peter’s surgery is not expected to impact on his directing commitment to The Hobbit beyond a slight delay to the start of filming.”
Oh man. No coffee on the set for Sir Peter. He’s going to be cranky.
Is it just me or does this production seem cursed? First, they couldn’t find a director. Then they couldn’t find money. Then they couldn’t find a crew. Then they were called racists. So help me, if this film harms one hair on Ian McKellan‘s elderly head… (Deadline)
