By half?! sad to hear people will be losing their jobs because of this.

Hey who knows? The less movies might mean the better the movies will turn out. Thus, they can also give a bigger budget and more time to produce the movies.

Or, they could be low on cash...

I'm gonna go with low on cash. I do hope the films are of higher quality because of this though.

Sunny_D4187d ago

Yeah, because they need to get big profits to stay in business.

WB low on cash or New Line? New Line hasnt really pushed anything out lately that was mind blowing, so they are basically mooching off WB money and WB said enough.

WB though. How many major blockbusters have they had in the past few years?

I suspect the New Line name is fast approaching the same status as the DoDo bird.

extinct? Wow, that would have been a cool bird.

I understand this to New Line since they havent really done much, but i dont like what he said. "cut movies and focus on the gems" I dont like that. You dont get gems by making gems, they just become something on their own. You think Inception would of been given a chance with that attitude?

This better not affect the new Harold & Kumar movie.
