I don't know. I always said that Jackson is kind of ripping off himself. The man can't do anything new. By doing this film he's catering to his own limitations as a film-maker. It's a very safe move for him.
Unfair statement. Let's not forget that Guillermo del Toro was supposed to direct these films and when things were falling apart it was Peter Jackson who stepped in and saved the Hobbit's ass even though he hadn't wanted to return as a Director. That being said, what he does on these films is nothing short of Trojan work and makes for some very fine fantasy films. He looks set to stun us all again.
In short, he's no George Lucas.
