Sam Raimi on The Hobbit and Spider-Man 4


“Spider-Man” franchise director Sam Raimi held a press conference today in Los Angeles to talk about producing 30 Days of Night, which opens on Friday. Raimi also talked about The Hobbit, Spider-Man 4, The Shadow and the upcoming Ghost House Pictures projects.

Raimi said, “There’s no better choice to direct ‘The Hobbit’ than Peter Jackson. I’m a fan of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy and Peter Jackson’s a brilliant filmmaker and he would be the guy I think everybody would love see direct it. And I hear [New Line and Jackson are] talking, too, from what I read in the trades, I don’t really know first hand, hopefully he will direct it and give us his great version of it. If he doesn’t direct it and decides to produce it, I’d love to be considered as the director.”
