Briefly: Production on the Lord Of The Rings prequel has been delayed due to Jackson’s stomach trying to murder him. A statement has been released by a publicist for The Hobbit films today telling us that Peter Jackson has had an emergency surgery. Here’s what they had to say,

Sir Peter Jackson was admitted to Wellington Hospital on Wednesday night with acute stomach pains. He subsequently underwent surgery for a perforated ulcer. 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.

Ghost of Tolkien does NOT want this movie made. 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. This movie is cursed… cursed I tell you!
