  •  Nolan can direct anything (0+ / 0-)

    If Christopher Nolan can go from making a surreal experimental film like Memento to making a three-film trilogy Batman series that is the top grossing comic book film series in history, surely he can handle the LOTR films.

    Experimental filmmaking is Nolan's specialty.  It's harder to understand than the LOTR franchise.  Therefore, making the Hobbit would be a walk in the park for him.

    On the other hand, the LOTR and Hobbit books are literary whereas Nolan and his brother Jonathan write completely original screenplays.  Maybe my idea of Nolan directing the Hobbit is far-fetched.  On the other hand, he hasn't made a single dull film.

    Alfonso Cuaron is very underrated and underused as a director.  He's also to be admired because the contract he had with Warner Brothers in making the Harry Potter Prisoner of Askaban film was to make Children of Men, which I thought was a unique and interesting film.
