Warner Bros. to Announce The Hobbit Plans
The Screen Production and Development Association (SPADA), Actors' Equity, and Council of Trade Unions (CTU) representatives met Wednesday in a meeting facilitated by Minister for Economic Development Gerry Brownlee, who said:
"It was a useful and productive discussion, and the parties had agreed to work together to update the conditions of engagement for performers" in the local film and television industry."
A spokesman for Peter Jackson said:
"Warner Brothers are running financial models about the costs of shooting in a variety of countries. We expect a decision is still a week or two away."
