Would be an interesting choice,would he cut the mustard with a huge budget though?
Also,i think this franchise is passed its sell-by date.

While I like the idea of Blomkamp tackling the film, I can't help but think I'd rather see him do some more original work. I had the same feelings with Del Toro, in that I would rather see them work on their own material than commit to LOTR for 5 years. 5 Years is a massive chunk of time out of the career of someone like Blomkamp, it seems a shame for him to commit so much time to something like this. Saying that, I'm sure it would be amazing.

I'd be happy with Blomkamp. I'd be even happier with Jackson though.

I'm impatient though. I want this to happen sooner.

...is that LOTR was such an exquisite masterpiece because everything worked from the get go. It was a well oiled machine where I'm guessing even Weta's cleaning ladies were as enthusiastic about the project as Jackson and his production team were. Films that start in this troubled fashion often (but not always) reflect these troubled waters in the finished product. Let's just hope Mr J has his shit wired tight and his powder dry on this one and no, I don't really know what that means other than I hope this will prove to be the exception and sail into the harbour on calm seas. Or something.

No, no, no, no.

Blomkamp should be making his mid budget sci-fi movies.

Can someone ask Peter Weir or Vincent Ward to step in!?!?

That, said Copley should totally get a role in the Hobbit.

Exactly, whoever makes The Hobbit is likely going to have whatever vision of their own they have hamstrung but the fact that they will essentially be making PJ's vision. Why waste a Blomkamp or Del Toro on that?

At this point, they could make a movie out of how this movie might never get made a la 'Lost in La Mancha.'

Personally, I wanted Del Toro to direct this. But Blomkamp did a good job with D9, and his not being tested on a big-budget epic puts him pretty much in the same place as Jackson back in the pre-LotR: FotR days, when the one movie I really knew him for was the creepy 'Heavenly Creatures.'

I'd wish Blomkamp luck, but (1) I doubt he'd read this comment [natch] and (2) At this point I seriously doubt this movie will see the light of day any time soon, regardless of who's directing. The more I read about delays and director switches and budgets the more I think of doomed, massive projects like 'Heaven's Gate' and 'Waterworld.'

It'll be a massive pity if after all this circus the finished movie is not worth the dirt on the bottom of a Orc's boot.
