As I said in the other thread, Jackson proved that there's a tremendous market for Tolkien's works, measured in the billions easily. Therefore if it can be shown that Jackson missed the boat with his juvenile irreverence and over-acting, and that a better telling would make as much or more, then a re-telling is as good as done.
So can it? I think Jackson wasn't true to the spirit of the book at all, since the tone, look and events were very different. Also, Tolkien seemed very fussy about detail, while Jackson seemed sloppy and libertine. It's not about the time-lapse: time is money.
