  • 5.30 -Tolkien familia suing studio for $160million over Lord of the Rings trilogy

    NYPOST -- THE family of "The Lord of the Rings" creator J.R.R. Tolkien is trying to stop New Line Cinema from making "The Hobbit." Tolkien's son, Christopher, 83, claims the studio owes the family $160 million in profits from the "Rings" trilogy. On June 6, he'll ask an LA judge to back his claim that he has the right to terminate film rights to "The Hobbit," set to shoot this year. In 1969, the elder Tolkien reluctantly sold screen rights for 7.5 percent of any profit to pay a tax bill. New Line parent Warner had no immediate comment.

            havent seen any of those movies, dont intend to. My ADD makes it hard enough to watch a 2 hour movie, ill pass on like 3 1/2 hours each of people walking. Clerks 2 knows whats up.

              Wrong. His family are legally entitled to this money. If anyone are "greedy fuckers" it's New Line Cinema.

                    No, if someone owes me 160 million, I ain't settling for anything less. The judge will rule in favor of the plaintiff after like a day's proceedings, if that.
