Actually I don't know. I'd like to know Sam Raimi's position. Sam Raimi is also a very talented director but not really on the same register so I don't know if he himself would feel comfortable about working after Peter Jackson who really has appropriated himself Tolkien's universe.
It's true also that if all the cast follows Ian McKellen, New Line won't have must choice than call back Peter Jackson who, by the way, has saved New Line with his trilogy some years ago ...
Ok only New Line had had the balls to follow Peter Jackson on this project. New Line asked for 3 movies where Peter Jackson already failed to convince other studios to go with two. But anyway I think New Line owes PJ a lot.
