  Jackson 'keen to make The Hobbit'
Updated 02 December 2003, 17.13
Rings director Peter Jackson
After spending seven years making the Lord of the Rings trilogy, director Peter Jackson still isn't bored - he apparently wants to make The Hobbit.

According to reports, he said he'd "be keen" to film JRR Tolkien's book, which is set before the films he's just done.

He said: "It would be wonderful to complete the set of films." But it all depends on whether film studio New Line can get the legal rights to the book."

Rings actor Ian McKellen has said he'd love to play Gandalf in The Hobbit.

Andy Serkis, who played Gollum, has recently been linked to Peter Jackson's next big project, King Kong - as the giant ape itself!

The final film in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy is out in the UK on 17 December.
