Keep Jackson's Hands Off 'The Hobbit'! sign now

We, the undersigned, as readers and scholars (not "fans") of the works of Professor JRR Tolkien, hereby express our considered opinion that Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" movies, whatever their cinematic merits, fail utterly as adaptations of Prof. Tolkien's book, especially with regard to the contempt for Prof. Tolkien's themes and ideals which Jackson evinces throughout. We heartily encourage New Line and MGM/UA to keep the /Hobbit/ project away from Peter Jackson and his accomplices, in the slim hope that another director might treat the author and his works with more respect: since, after all, /slim/ is still better than /none/.

Please work together to preserve the barriers to an illegitimate Jackson adaptation's production and distribution. We, the readers (not "fans"), are prepared to support and reward a *valid* vision of Middle-earth.

In addition to showing support for keeping Jackson's hands off this project by signing this petition, readers and scholars can make their wishes known by writing a tactful, concise letter to the following persons at these addresses:

Robert K. Shaye
New Line Cinema Corporation
888 7th Avenue
New York, NY 10106

Alex Yemenidjian
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc.
10250 Constellation Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90067
