While it's known that Guillermo Del Toro wil be directing The Hobbit, rumors have been floating that Peter Jackson - an acclaimed director himself and the producer/writer on The Hobbit - might jump behind the camera for a scene or two?
But Del Toro shot that talk down during a recent interview with MTV.
“We talked about it. I normally oppose fully the idea of second unit so my first instinct is no, we will not have second unit on this film,” Del Toro said of whether or not Jackson would jump behind the camera at all. “If there is a scheduling conflict or a problem of that sort, we may consider it, but right now the idea is I shoot everything.”
