Let The Hobbit debacle begin once again. Taking note from the fans, New Line has come to its senses and are again trying to work something out with Peter Jackson; even if it is only for some creative involvement.

Peter Jackson Returning to Hobbiton

According to The LA Times, reposted at ComingSoon, Bob Shaye has openly admitted that Jackson's involvement on The Hobbit is being requested.

Eager to move ahead with "The Hobbit," New Line has quietly been trying to mend fences with "Rings" filmmaker Peter Jackson, who has sued the company over his share of profits from the first "Rings" films. When asked if it was true that company insiders had been in talks with Jackson's reps, Shaye replied, "Yes, that's a fair statement. Notwithstanding our personal quarrels, I really respect and admire Peter and would love for him to be creatively involved in some way in 'The Hobbit.'" also reports that the return of Jackson and Walsh would most likely lead to the return of Ian McKellen as Gandolf.

Like before, expect a bunch more updates on The Hobbit as they develop.
