Hi Jeff
I don't know about film producers, but I did want to say thank you (from northeast Ohio) for stopping in at my blog and leaving that nice comment. I got a kick out of reading some of your posts pertaining to news. Never stood before a camera but I've worked in newspapers for 20 years.
Cheers!

What do you have to do? How about, 'work for nothing'? -blue

"ongoing dispute between Wingnut Films and New Line Cinema over the amount Jackson was paid for “The Fellowship of the Ring"

To both Karen and Beau, thank you for coming to visit. I'm adding both your sites to my list of regular visits.

Karen, my current profession is online, editing a website for a television station, but my background is newspaper.

Beau, yours is a very colorful, lyrical look at the world. You're right about the pay disputes ... Jackson DOES want more ... but when I consider what he delivered, and the profits his product yielded ...

It's always about the money, innit?

Someone probably got the bright idea that, with three movies out there, they can hire some hack *cough!*Chris Columbus*hack!* and film "The Hobbit" the exact same way, and they'd get a hugh hit without having to pay Jackson the moolah.

Welcome, Bill ... thanks for visiting ... yeah, it does seem to be about the money ...

Visited your website ... I admire a man with a Larry Boy looking over his shoulder!
