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:

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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
