A note about the New Yorker magazine article
The pop-culture world has been reacting to the excellent magazine article in The New Yorker about Guillermo del Toro and especially about his designs on ‘The Hobbit.’
Here is a reminder to be media savvy. The material for that article was taken from interviews when all circumstances surrounding the film were different and when Mr. del Toro was still the director. Since then, after many delays, he was forced to move on with his career and life and get back to the long list of projects that were put on hold for “The Hobbit”.
The article was intended to be a profile on the unique genius of the director who has done things his unique way for the whole of his career; it was not intended to be a definitive account of what “The Hobbit” would look like or will look like now. TORn’s senior staff can tell you how deeply sorry the director was to leave the film and how much a fan of the production he remains.Posted in Director news, Guillermo Del Toro, Hobbit Movie, Peter Jackson on February 1, 2011 by MrCere
