New Line Blacklists Peter Jackson

New Line’s chief executive officer, Robert Shaye, had some harsh words for director Peter Jackson (King Kong, The Lord of the Rings).

“I don’t care about Peter Jackson anymore,” said Shaye. “He wants to have another $100 million or $50 million, whatever he’s suing us for. He doesn’t want to sit down and talk about it. He thinks that we owe him something after we’ve paid him over a quarter of a billion dollars. … Cheers, Peter.”

Still not through, Shaye continued on, “There’s a kind of arrogance. Not that I don’t think Peter is a good filmmaker and that he hasn’t contributed significantly to filmography and made three very good movies. And I don’t even expect him to say ‘thank you’ for having me make it happen and having New Line make it happen. But to think that I, as a functionary in [a] company that has been around for a long time, but is now owned by a very big conglomerate, would care one bit about trying to cheat the guy, … he’s either had very poor counsel or is completely misinformed and myopic to think that I care whether I give him [anything].”

And what about Jacksons involvement in the Hobbit movie? “It will never happen during my watch,” said Shaye.
