London: Filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro is sure that the ‘The Hobbit’ will be made – despite his decision to quit as the project`s director.
The Lord Of The Rings prequel is based on JRR Tolkien`s first book and has been in trouble due to ongoing monetary losses at MGM Studios, which was put up for sale in 2009 after falling heavily into debt.
Del Toro has assured fans that he will do anything that he can to bring the film to the big screens and will stay on to contribute as a screenwriter.
"I believe these films will happen. Preproduction continues as we speak. The writing team... and myself will keep moving the screenplays forward,” a news daily quoted Del Toro as stating.
"Perhaps even sooner than we may anticipate we will all look at the finished film and then, I will tear up whenever I recognise a set or a creature or a quirk created under my supervision," he added.
