According New Line's Steve Einhorn, "We plan to completely support THD specifically. This will move our schedule ahead considerably."

The first order of business seems to be not if but when consumers can expect the The Lord Of The Rings films in THD?

Einhorn then said "that the studio was 'working on it now', that the titles were 'high on their agenda' and that they were 'looking at the right time and venue' for the release."
