<p>Kristin Thompson's newest blog entry titled '<a title="Permanent Link: Sifting through the latest Hobbit project buzz" href="http://www.kristinthompson.net/blog/?p=114" rel="bookmark"><font color="#800080">Sifting through the latest Hobbit project buzz</font></a>' sequentially takes a look at the biggest news stories that have been circulating since the past few weeks, namely, "<em>the </em><a href="http://www.mania.com/56206.html" target="_blank"><font color="#0000ff"><em>Hollywood Reporter’s brief story</em></font></a><em> on the fact that New Line has decided not to contest the $125,000 fine levied against it by the court; a long </em><a href="http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20036782_20037403_20142132,00.html" target="_blank"><font color="#800080"><em>Entertainment Weekly summary</em></font></a><em> of the entire history of the lawsuit and the Hobbit project; a nearly hour-long appearance by Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, heads of New Line, on the </em><a href="http://www.charlierose.com/shows/2007/10/04/1/a-discussion-about-the-40th-anniversary-of-newline-cinema" target="_blank"><font color="#0000ff"><em>Charlie Rose Show</em></font></a><em>; and a </em><a href="http://http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20071005/film_nm/rings_dc" target="_blank"><font color="#0000ff"><em>Reuters/Hollywood Reporter</em></font></a><em> story, “One ‘Rings’ Penalty to Rule Them All,” analyzing the New Line fine.</em>"</p>
<p>Her insightful analysis of the entire PJ-NL situation in the past year have been shown to be pretty much accurate in retrospect, and as always, she maintains her hope that "<em>Peter seems to have kept his schedule flexible, despite the various producing tasks he has undertaken and the options he holds on literary sources for possible adaptation.<span> </span>He may have planned all these with an eye to shuffling his projects to make room for The Hobbit.</em>"</p>
