The Hobbit director Peter Jackson had emergency surgery Wednesday night, which means the film is going to have a bit more of a delayed start.

A publicist for The Hobbit released this statement today.

Peter Jackson Shoots on RED

"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."

The two films are still expected to be released in December of 2012 and December 2013.

Get well soon Peter.
