Jackson’s “Hobbit” publicist, Melissa Booth, confirmed to the New Zealand Herald that the director “wanted to express his grateful thanks to the doctors and nursing staff at Wellington Hospital for their expert care and to all those members of the public who sent their warm wishes.”

In a statement, Booth went on to say that any future “Hobbit” delays would be “minimal,” and that filming on the anticipated fantasy features will start next month.
