Somebody with the studios needs to get their cranium out of there anal cavity and either get MGM onboard or buy them out. Both these flicks are gonna make beaucoups of money, so they'll get there money back many times over. C'mon Warner, buy MGM out for Pete's sake.
I hate to see Del Toro out, but the man has got to feed his family. Is this a ploy by Jackson and Del Toro to get the studios to make a positive move? Who knows?
