Bob and Harvey Weinstein are suing Warner Bros over its decision to divide The Hobbit into three films, which will mean they receive no payment from the second and third instalments.

Miramax, founded by the brothers, sold its rights to The Hobbit to New Line, part of the Warner group, in 1998.

New Line agreed to make payments for the "first motion picture" only.

The Weinsteins claim the studio adapted the book into three films "solely to deprive plaintiffs" of agreed revenue.
