Peter Jackson as the next “Star Wars” director? It’s unlikely, but not totally impossible.read more: http://www.accesshollywood.com/the-hobbits-peter-jackson-could-he-go-from-middle-earth-to-star-wars_article_73529
Asked by an Access Hollywood producer on Friday if “Star Wars” is a universe he’d ever consider playing in, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” director didn’t completely rule it out.
“’Star Wars’? I dunno. I’ve never really thought about it. I’m busy for the next couple of years (laughs). So I’m off the cards for the next ‘Star Wars’ film unfortunately,” he said, referring to his work finishing the next two installments in “The Hobbit” trilogy.
“But, I’ve got huge admiration for what George [Lucas] created. He did what [J.R.R.] Tolkien did, really,” Peter continued. “He created a mythology. I don’t know. Someone would have to ask me and I’d have to have a very serious think about it.”
Returning to Middle Earth for “The Hobbit’s” first installment, which opens in theaters on December 14, was a treat for the director, and there were some magical moments off set too.
