Any ideas how much PJ will earn from the trilogy? Can't Post

I seem to remember reading he is worth around around $400 million, according to this article;

http://www.celebritynetworth.com/...r-jackson-net-worth/

He earned about $180 million from lotr (so around 4-6% of the box office gross per film), and his IMDB trivia page

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) $10,000,000 + gross points (this salary is for all 3 films) King Kong (2005) $20,000,000 + 20% of the gross (to be shared with co-writer/producer Fran Walsh & co-writer Philippa Boyens)
http://www.imdb.com/...nm0001392/bio#trivia

States he was the world highest paid director with King Kong (which he received 20% of the gross from), but given the lower than expected box office of Tintin and The Lovely Bones, and the involvement of two major studios this time around could he be expected to have less say in gross profits? Would such an agrremnt on profit margins be signed before they made the leap from 2 to 3 films?

I know this is a kinda controversial and fairly random topic, but I was wondering whether anyone had any more info (If he is earning as much as he did with King Kong I can kinda see why the Tolkien estate takes a dim view of the films-an outsider potentially earning three times as much as they are by rewriting the stories could hardly sit well with them...)


On a side note could the Hobbit trilogy make Hugo Weaving the Worlds highest grossing actor-LOTR, The Hobbit, Transformers and the Matrix trilogies were all multi billion dollar grossing franchises, add in Captain America, the two Babe films, The Wolfman etc could he be in with a chance of knocking Samuel L Jackson off the top?

The Talking Purse is Awesome, deal with it.
