Tolkein estate, publisher sue New Line
by Doc on Feb.12, 2008, under Movies
New line has already been sued over profits for the Lord of the Rings movies – now the Tolkein estate and publisher HarperCollins are after their piece of the pie, suing for their part of the gross profits. We know Hollywood has always had “creative” accounting practices – perhaps New Line was a little too creative?
Not all shows coming back with the writers
by Doc on Feb.12, 2008, under Television
Variety has a rundown of network shows and how they will be handled when production picks back up. Notably for NBC, “Shows not expected to resume production include “Bionic Woman” and “Journeyman”; both are currently considered canceled.” But Chuck and Heroes is likely to come back later this year. On ABC, details are being worked on regarding Lost, which had a 16 episode order for next year but may get extended if this year’s order can’t be completed.
