The Hobbit: Inside Information

Postby Guest » Sat Oct 06, 2007 8:00 am

<p>TORC message board member <strong>Compa_Mighty</strong> points us to an interesting blog entry on MarketSaw that says:</p>
<p><em>"I believe <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Peter Jackson</span> will soon be announced as the director of <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">"The Hobbit"</span>. I have heard from an internal source that a very generous percentage sharing deal with New Line is in the works concurrently with ongoing litigation between the two parties. Further, <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">and here is the kicker</span>: In return for the deal, the litigation that is pending between Jackson and New Line <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold; FONT-STYLE: italic">will be withdrawn</span>. It all hinges on continued good faith dialogue between everyone involved."</em></p>
<p>Whether this information is true or not remains to be seen. In the meantime, you can read the original blog entry '<a href="">Is Bob Swayed? Jackson Directed "The Hobbit" Soon To Be Announced</a>'.</p>
