According to the AP, Wingnut Films, director Peter Jackson's production company, is suing New Line Cinema, studio of record behind Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. The lawsuit alleges that New Line inaccurately calculated revenues on the trilogy, and have also been offering ancillary liscencing deals to their affiliates, "without first seeking the most competitive and beneficial deals from unaffiliated third parties in a free and open market." No response yet from New Line or aforementioned affiliates.
