Ever hear how movie studios brag about how much their movies make, but the people who have stake in the profits never seen to see a dime because they always lose money? Looks like a form of it has hit the Lord of the Rings franchise. Peter Jackson and his Wingnut Films, Ltd. have filed suit against New Line Cinema, alleging among other things that New Line engaged in “self-dealing” with New Line affiliates, which charged more than what could be obtained from other companies. THe suit only concerns the first film.
