OH! ;D Sorry about that. I hope that we wouldn't have to wait that long or for that reason. I would hate to be 60 years old when it comes out! Chris is the main sticking point. I hope that we could do our little project as a tribute to the book without incuring any "wrath" from the powers; I don't think that Christopher would let a "real" film be done unless he wrote the script, was the casting director, art director, location scout, and director of the film! It's a legacy thing for him I don't hate him for it. I wouldn't want someone screwing up my dad's life's work either. I just wish that a compromise could be worked out. Maybe 10% gross to the Tolkien Foundation with Christopher being the technical adviser on the film with final approval option on the script given to the family.
You know that it will make money, so just ask Chris what he wants and give him at least 8 out 10 of his demands!
