Listen people, it's Sunday and it's Father's Day and I've got nothing! Well, I did find this very interesting rumor that could be really cool if it turns out to be true.

The One Ring.net is reporting and analyzing a rumor that they received via spy report (movie spies - who knew?) indicating that Neill Blomkamp (District 9) may be replacing Guillermo del Toro as "The Hobbit" director. Speculation is that because the studio really wants Peter Jackson to direct (but Peter Jackson doesn't want to direct), Blomkamp mentored by Jackson is the next best thing. Clearly, the film is moving forward, as there have been pictures of sets popping up all over the interwebs.

Though I'm pretty sure I read an interview with Blomkamp, shortly after the District 9 release, saying he wanted to stay low budget and independent for a while, I'd love to see this rumor be true. What say you all?

And now, back to your regularly scheduled Father's Day Sunday schedule.
