Peter Jackson's stomach ulcer scare.

''Filming of The Hobbit will be delayed after director Sir Peter Jackson was hospitalised with a perforated stomach ulcer.

Jackson was admitted to Wellington Hospital last night with acute stomach pains.

A statement said he had undergone surgery for a perforated ulcer.

"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, the statement said.

The Hobbit author JRR Tolkien suffered from a perforated ulcer before dying in 1973.

A perforated ulcer is a when an ulcer in the stomach burns completely through the stomach lining, leaving a hole for stomach acid and foods to enter the abdominal cavity.

In 2005, Sir Peter revealed he had lost over 31kg in 10 months, though other reports put the figure at up to 49kg, which he attributed to intense hard work.

Last week, he was reported to be scouting in Fiordland with the help of five helicopters for locations to the films.

His spokesman, Matt Dravitzki, confirmed the filmmaker was location scouting in the Queenstown area before filming starts next month, and that crews were also looking for sites in the North Island.

Warner Bros last year threatened to take the production to Eastern Europe because the films were the subject of a boycott by several international actors' unions, including New Zealand's Actors' Equity.

The studio agreed to keep the movies in New Zealand after the Government changed employment laws and gave millions in tax breaks.

That's ironic, because I got a stomach ulcer when Legolas surfed down some stairs on a shield in TTT.

Anyway, I hope Mr Jackson recovers quickly.

I won't be so evil to say "I hope it hurts a lot".

No, really. After all it's not his stomach's fault that PJ messed up LOTR. And he didn't want to ruin it in the first place - just got a bit, um, creative. So wishing him a fast recovery!

Sir Peter? He was knighted? I didn't know that. That's funny.

I'm sorry he had a stomach ulcer go through his stomach lining. That's got to be uncomfortable.

I'm excited about the filming to start soon...yay

Exactly my reaction. I must be a calloused old gossip, because I the poor man's ulcer went by the wayside upon my realizing that "dear PJ" seems to have been knighted when I wasn't looking.

Perhaps PJ's stomach was visited by the ghost of Tolkien Past.

Yes, New Zealand gets to nominate its own citizens as knights since they are still part of the British Honours System. Who else are they going to nominate apart from Peter Jackson? Russell Crowe?

Haha. I happen to like Russel Crowe better than Sir Peter. So, yeah, maybe that would be a better option. :P

I've read that the filing is going to start this month, and the first movie will be in theatres on around december 2012. And both movies are in 3D.

PJ sais that he's "currently under a medical form of house arrest". That's what he thinks of his time in the hospital.
