I knew I shouldn't get my hopes up....I knew it...I KNEW IT!!!

Apparently, more legal trouble at New Line that could halt The Hobbit films.

The article said this suit COULD effect the film.

I think that if NL contracted to pay so much, they should pay it. This sounds too much like what PJ said. The estate is only asking for an accounting, apparently, just as PJ did.

Does anyone know if Christopher Tolkien has anything to do with this Tolkien Estate?

Hugs,
Rach

He is one of the executors of the estate, along with his wife and his nephew.

This is too bad.  What a shame that the Hobbit might be affected.  I hope it does go ahead....but NL should definately pay up, if they said they would.

NL has been accused of this kind of things many times before, you know...

Who's in charge of money in that company?

I'm in the same boat and to think we were discussing who would direct and what sort of movie this would be.  The only positive thing would be if this gets pushed back then perhaps PJ would be available to direct both films.  I have no doubt this movie will get made at some point, there's just too much money to be made from it.

Oooo...neat siggie, Romeny!  I agree with you...a little delay might be the best thing all around. Although it must be admitted that my first reaction was 

Geesh...really sounds like NL was a crooked company. Can't believe they pulled this stuff with the actual T Estate. Oh boy....

Don't worry, Rach. The Hobbit will be made...everyone knows that it will be a big $$$$$$$.  We will just have to be patient.

Well, Elijah has officially approved Del Toro as the director of "The Hobbit".

Now... if we can just get over the legal mess....

The legal snafu is the real sticking point because if this thing is pushed back yrs, who will be available as far as actors/directors?  Of course if it's pushed back far enough, PJ might be available to direct.

OH,.......... this is very sad indeed to hear more money woes........
I just wish people would realize, the Hobbit will be an instant money maker for them...... and then the film would go ahead.......... very sad indeed.

Hmmmm...wasn't there some mention awhile ago that the movie rights would go back to Sentz (sp? can't remember his name...oops) soon - if the movie wasn't started by a certain time? Perhaps this will resolve a lot of issues.

You know, Culpie, you're right, the rights DO revert in a few years. Maybe THIS is what the family wants, for the rights to go back to the original owners.

Hmmm...

Hugs,
