In other news, it seems that J.R.R. Tolkien is managing to sue New Line Cinema from beeyyooond theee graaaavvveee. In proper Middle Earth Fashion, a guy that died 35 years ago is pissed about profits from the films. (Full Story) Okay, so maybe it's not him, but some illuminati group known as "The Tolkien Trust" who claim to be a charity organization; but as far as I can tell they don't benefit anyone really. (Check it out for yourself) My hypothesis? Sauron. That guy's been wanting to fire up Mt. Doom ever since Return of the King. Why not start a charity group to raise money to do it? Anyway, New Line Cinema is under heavy fire, and not just from the orcs at the Tolkien Trust, but also from Peter Jackson for profit reasons as well. I wonder what this means for the planned Hobbit films?
