The uncertainty of MGM's future has led to a stall on The Hobbit, and now Guillermo del Toro is leaving the director's chair.

"In light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming The Hobbit, I am faced with the hardest decision of my life," Guillermo wrote on Lord of the Rings fansite "After nearly two years of living, breathing and designing a world as rich as Tolkien's Middle Earth, I must, with great regret, take leave from helming these wonderful pictures."
