I still don't know why REE were sold the rights in the first place. That's not a random "I wish New Line bought them" kinda moan.

I mean that by looking through there history I can't see anything they have done that would jump out at me and say "we will take care of this huge property and do a great job producing content based on it".

One of the REE owners had a name similar to Lan Mandragoran or some crap like that.

Yes, that is a sound policy to have when selling the rights to your book series.

All high-powered lawyer negotiations should end in either of these scenarios:

Scenario 1:



Scenario 2:

Originally, that was RJ's flawless logic.

After he passed, Harriett signed a seven year deal for close to 600k. I think she needed a bunch of cash for something and was worried with her husbands death that she wouldn't be able to pay.

I don't think REE ever intended to produce something on their own. From the outside looking in it seems that they really wanted to be the middle man between a South Carolina couple who did not want to deal with Hollywood and the next LOTR. I'm sure all their deals with universal/sony/whoever fell through because they wanted a bigger return on their investment.
