The Lord Of The Rings TV Series Has Been Confirmed
If you LOVE yourself some Lord of the Rings, you’re in for a treat - we hope. The word is, Warner Bros and Amazon are teaming up to forge a brand new TV show.
They’re currently negotiating with the estate of J.R.R Tolkien to develop the show, which we’re told will be based on the novels and then released on Amazon.
It’s a very exciting project for all, considering Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is said to be personally involved in the negotiations - which never happens.
We’re not 100 per cent which stories will be adapted, but it’s likely to be the Lord of the Rings books.
There’s also a chance they’ll develop The Silmarillon, which is about the history of Middle Earth.
“The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen,” Sharon Tal Yguado, head of scripted series at Amazon Studios, said in a statement.
“We are honored to be working with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on this exciting collaboration for television and are thrilled to be taking The Lord of the Rings fans on a new epic journey in Middle Earth.”
