A Neat New Summary Of The Latest News Concerning 'The Hobbit'

Kristin Thompson's newest blog entry titled 'Sifting through the latest Hobbit project buzz' sequentially takes a look at the biggest news stories that have been circulating since the past few weeks, namely, "the Hollywood Reporter’s brief story on the fact that New Line has decided not to contest the $125,000 fine levied against it by the court; a long Entertainment Weekly summary of the entire history of the lawsuit and the Hobbit project; a nearly hour-long appearance by Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, heads of New Line, on the Charlie Rose Show; and a Reuters/Hollywood Reporter story, “One ‘Rings’ Penalty to Rule Them All,” analyzing the New Line fine."

Her insightful analysis of the entire PJ-NL situation in the past year have been shown to be pretty much accurate in retrospect, and as always, she maintains her hope that "Peter seems to have kept his schedule flexible, despite the various producing tasks he has undertaken and the options he holds on literary sources for possible adaptation. He may have planned all these with an eye to shuffling his projects to make room for The Hobbit."
