We're all just victims of circumstance

Looks like Robert Shaye (CEO of New Line Cinema) is turning Peter Jackson's troubles with New Line's accounting practices into a personal matter.  Don't know yet how this will affect The Hobbit.  Read the scoop at AICN:

And you thought Trek isn't cool.

The New Line executive must not have consulted with his PR guy about what he intended to say.  They already looked like royal schmucks over this issue; this just drives the point home.  A deciding to fast track the movie so that they can have it complete before their rights expire is plain stupid.

I admire Peter Jackson for the restraint he has been showing this whole time.  Every story I read, he seems to state the same thing:  "There were inconsistencies noted.  Auditing is a common practice.  We would like to audit the books."  New Line responds by hooting in alarm and flinging poo.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
