An escalation in the war of words between New Line co-chairman Bob Shaye and "Lord of the Rings" filmmaker Peter Jackson appears to be nixing any possible reconciliation between the two -- or any chance that Jackson will direct the trilogy's prequel, "The Hobbit."

In an interview with the Sci Fi Channel news service Sci Fi Wire, Shaye said Jackson will never make another movie for the studio and said the filmmaker just wants more money.

Who thinks any future LotR theatrical efforts without Jackson's vision and artistic effects will bring fan disappointment...

That will certainly play into it but IMO a bigger negative effect will be those luminaries (McKellen, artists Howe & the other guy, etc.) who refuse to work on a LotR film without Jackson on board.

Remember, the entire technical production company, special effects, costuming, props department, etc., are Jackson's company.

Who notes that industry disputes between movie studios and artists over whether the books are cooked in the studios favor are not new and are not going away...

******************

When I was young and naive, I believed it when people made such statements. I've heard people say worse things about each other, and the next thing you know, they're kissing and making up (especially in Hollywood).

One thing though... Ian McKellan (sp) is getting older. By the time they do decide to do it with Jackson, he may not have the energy or desire to participate. That will make a difference to me.

Probably just posturing. New Line would be stupid not to come to some sort of agreement on this.
