This is strictly a rumor at this point. It has not been confirmed, but if it is true then praise be to New Line. New Line is used to bigger productions, though usually doesn't have a project that is a widespread culturally cool as this. If true, it would be a two picture deal for Peter, as his Lord of the Rings adaptation covers the three main books in two scripts that are about 3 hours long each. Please be true Please be true Please be true Please be true Please be true Please be true.... Go see BLADE an extra time just to make em feel safer about doing it!!!!
Heard it from a strong source at New Line that New Line Cinema is picking up the ball dropped by Miramax on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings. Supposedly they will be releasing the press release next week.
