    Tolkien Estate settles with New Line

    The long running contentious dispute has been settled. The Hobbit film can continue production.

    The road goes ever on and on.

    I don't doubt the Tolkien people, New Line pissed Peter Jackson off by making HUUUUGE profits of LOTR, then "forgetting" to pay his people.

    hollyweird is a business just like everything else, the music and film execs are not exactly known for their generosity to their artists

    PJ isn't even directing this one. I'm boycotting theater release on principle.

    I didn't realize that. Sez he's 'writer and executive producer':

    (also sez they're turning the Hobbit into 2 movies, I guess like the last Harry Potter)

    What principle? Are you trying to bring Foo Idiocy into your personal life? Why?

    Thanks PCad for the nice news. I had missed that one. Will look forward to going to movie as soon as it opens. Would like to see PJ direct it, but we'll have to wait and see. New Line did a nice job with effects in LOTR.

    Don't remember all the exact details, but there were lawsuits going on for years about PJ not getting royalties from the movies he was promised. That was part of the original hold up on The Hobbit. Then, they removed him as director hoping they could get things going with PJ out of the way.

    That was the story a few years ago....I haven't kept up with it. I see from IMDB, though, that PJ still isn't directing. Yeah, he wrote the screen play, but he wrote that back when LOTR was still going on, or soon after.

    Jackson is intimately involved in the Hobbit production, he picked the director.

    I haven't kept up with it in a while....when it was going on a few years ago it was nasty and PJ was getting screwed.

    I'll look in to it and if that's the case, I feel better about it.

    it was so silly how the lord of the rings movies spawned all those weird fans.

    i remember having to read the books and the hobbit in school and that sure was a painful experience. it was worse than reading shakespeare as a 7 year old. so painful.

    I read The Hobbit as a kid and barely made it. I started Lord of the Rings as an adult and couldn't get through the first page.

    So, I agree. Agree about the fans, too.

    Without LOTR, I would never have read "Bored of the Rings" and it's description of the Ballhog -

    ...As Goodgulf stepped onto the bridge the passage echoed with an ominous dribble, dribble, and a great crowd of narcs burst forth. In their midst was a towering dark shadow too terrible to describe. In it's hand it held a huge black globe and on its chest was written in cruel runes, "Villanova."

    "Aiyee," shouted Legolam, "A ballhog!"

    I first read it at the age of about 12 and it is what started me on my love for fantasy novels/stories.


    There is a damn good reason it was named by many literary societies as the "most important piece of literature of the 20th century".
