Yet another news story suggesting that Peter Jacksons career is falling apart because of his greed with movie companies...

http://www.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/Movies/01/...reut/index.html

"I don't care about Peter Jackson anymore," Shaye said. "He wants to have another $100 million or $50 million, whatever he's suing us for. He doesn't want to sit down and talk about it. He thinks that we owe him something after we've paid him over a quarter of a billion dollars. ..."

I really hope that Bungie didn't hitch themselves to a sinking ship... :bye2:

Adam: agreed, he should be paid.

I realized after reading a little more that this is money that New Line contractually owes to Peter Jackson, and they're trying to shortchange him because they've already paid him so much.

I guess I just worry that he's doing damage to his reputation by making enemies of New Line...and actually he sounds like the more reasonable person...

tough decision as what to really do.

I mean, if you won a $100 million dollar lotto and when they were going pay you they said "you know, that's a who lot of money, I think we'll just give you $50 million, don't be so greedy".

Wouldn't you want the other $50 million? I would.


However, he could have made up his cadrillion dollars by directing the Hobbit. No chance of that now.
