Neill Blomkamp NOT Directing THE HOBBIT; Working on His Next Feature, ELYSIUM

     June 23, 2010

I hate to say “I told you so”, but I don’t.  I really enjoy being right.  Vulture has debunked the rumor that director Neill Blomkamp (District 9) would be stepping in to helm The Hobbit. I explained that no one was getting the job because MGM is in ruins and until they get their act together, they don’t have the money to hire anyone.

Instead, Blomkamp is going to work on a sci-fi script he wrote called Elysium.  Vulture says not much is know about he movie other than it takes place on another planet.  I’m excited for anything Blomkamp is going to do and I’m totally find if it’s not in Middle-Earth.
