New Line - 40th Anniversary

A fascinating interview with the current co-CEOs of New Line, Robert Shaye and Michael Lynne on Charlie Rose tonight. Discussions on the future of cinema (all digital), franchises, New Line has an impressive lineup (Nightmare on Elm Street, Rush Hour, Lord of the Rings, Austin Powers), the foundation of the company, and big failures (The Last Mimsy, Snakes on a Plane).

Interesting that they reiterated a common theme among successful people, and that is passion for what they do.
