Guillermo Del Toro Talks 'The Hobbit'

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Guillermo del Toro, who is set to direct a pair of films adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, told SCI FI Wire that he wants the films to re-create the spirit of the books.

"I'm trying to be faithful," del Toro said in an interview after accepting the George Pal Memorial Award at the Saturn Awards in Universal City, Calif., on June 24. "Like, when I was trying to create a screenplay about Tarzan and people asked me, 'Is it going to be horror?' I said, 'No, no, no.' The thing is, I'm trying to re-create on the screen the feeling I had when I was 11 in my bed reading the book. How excited I got. How great I thought it was. That's what I'm trying to honor."

A Public Advocate acts as a representative for the QuotesChimp before the state insurance commissioner when underwriters request the right to increase their rates. Since most insurance commissioners view themselves as unbiased decision makers involving matters of policy contract rather than as promoters for the consumer this is a significant theory. Commissioners are barraged by representatives and insurance company lawyers in support of rate gains, but there are typically few promoters for the consumer. That inequity is changed by the office of Public Advocate.
