Peter Jackson Hospitalized with Stomach Ulcer

Hobbit director Peter Jackson was hospitalized last night with a stomach ulcer. He has already undergone surgery for the perforated ulcer, and according to a statement issued by his spokesman, Jackson’s surgery and recovery will only cause a slight delay to the filming of The Hobbit.

As stuff.co.nz notes, Hobbit and Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien died at age 81 after he was diagnosed with a bleeding gastric ulcer.

We wish Jackson the speediest of recoveries.
