Hollywood Power Struggles
'Lord of the Rings' director Peter Jackson was in New Line Cinema's bad books for a while. The Oscar-winner feuded with the production company over finances and was reportedly banned from ever working with the company. New Line co-chairman Robert Shaye even told the press, "I don't care about Peter Jackson anymore." However, Jackson and New Line hugged it out later on when Jackson signed on to direct 'The Hobbit'.
