Word from a reliable source indicates that Sam Raimi has been approached to
direct THE HOBBIT. Since Peter Jackson's (Middle-)earth shattering news that
he is off the project, it seems the Spider-Man director may step into his
place. Raimi was born on October 23rd, 1959 in Royal Oak, Michigan. His
first big hit was 'The Evil Dead' but he really gained cult status with
'Evil Dead II'. It is his amazing work on the Spider-Man series that has
propelled Raimi to the mainstream. His latest film 'Spider-Man 3' is due out
this May.

While there is no word on Raimi accepting the invitation, it remains to be
seen who, if anyone, will be replacing Peter Jackson!
