I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down.'- Bob Newhart

Interesting.....The director of "Pan's Labyrinth",could bring a darker edge.

Indeed. Though the silliness included in Jackson's movies would be more appropriate in this film.

I really have always been a fan of the atmosphere of Rankin and Bass' version of the Hobbit - kind of dark and creepy and otherwordly (although not so heavy and overwhelming as to make it an adult-only movie). It made an impression on me when I saw it as a little kid, and it kind of stuck with me. I wouldn't mind the movie having a slightly darkish flavor, providing the essence of the Hobbit is there. I mean, it is Tolkien.

Well if the spiders don't make that sweet screechy electronic Megatron shriek (as seen in Rankin and Bass') when they die, I'm not seeing it.
