More than a $100 million in legal fees? Can't Post

Wow it’s good to be a lawyer. I was reading about the boycott over at the NY Times and this caught my eye.

Actors Warn Against ‘Hobbit’ Boycott as Costs Mount

The Hobbit” — with a price tag of about $500 million — could become the most expensive film project of all time. More than $100 million of that total cost will be legal fees, The Herald said, as the studios behind the films work out settlements with the long-delayed project’s various rights holders.

Is this normal for a movie of this size?

May your beer be laid under an enchantment of surpassing excellence for seven years!
