"The Hobbit" movie hasn't even begun production yet and here is another problem to add to the list. Director Peter Jackson was admitted to Wellington Hospital with acute stomach pains and underwent surgery for a perforated ulcer.
According to a statement from the production, "Sir Peter is currently resting comfortably and his doctors expect him to make a full recovery. Sir Peter's surgery is not expected to impact on his directing commitment to The Hobbit beyond a slight delay to the start of filming."
