Yeah... [In reply to] Can't Post

but it's interesting how Shaye's tone is changing since Peter's been working with Steven Spielberg ;) (Hollywood's heaviest hitter, imho)

Maybe they're afraid of losing projects, or someone behind the scenes (*kaff-Spielberg-kaff*) is putting on the pressure.

Again, I think it comes down to money [In reply to] Can't Post

Boycott or not (and I think it has more to do with their mostly lousy output over the last two years), New Line isn't a huge money maker these days. Especially if Hairspray tanks, Shaye might want at least one guaranteed money-maker that he can point to. While I expect Golden Compass to do pretty well (unless the religious fanatics call for a boycott of that), The Hobbit, particularly if Jackson directs, will be a money-maker.

Or maybe they'll arrive at a compromise where Jackson produces but doesn't direct. It'll be itneresting to see.

Boycott New Line!

The pressure... [In reply to] Can't Post

is more on New Line than on PJ, thats for sure.

PJ will be ok since he has plenty of projects on the go. His involvement with the likes of
Spielberg, James Cameron and Microsoft only affirms his credibility in the movie industry.

Where as New Line's credibility is fading, not to mention that they have a lot more to lose if the
Hobbit film turns out to be a bust.
