Universal and New Line ink deal for HHN 17

Universal and New Line Cinema have inked a deal to incorporate Freddy Kreuger, Jason, and Leatherface into Halloween Horror Nights 17. This should be fun.

On a sidenote, there's speculation online that since New Line owns Lord Of The Rings and the property has no current theme park presence this could lead to something LOTR-related at Universal. Though total speculation, this would be a fantastic addition to the Universal family.

I dunno about the LOTR thing. They've already brought in HP and I doubt they want to turn the parks into a who's-who of fantasy fiction. I wouldn't mind it at all, being a fan of both properties... but it might be a bit redundant.

Also, NewLine and Peter Jackson are still battling it out over LOTR money, which means that he may have no involvement in any kind of LOTR theme park attraction, even as an advisor. Not sure that is such a good idea.

If you would like to hear the entire Conference, IOACentral Radio was there, and our show this week will be the conference, just in case you would like to hear the other aspects that were talked about.
