Amazon and Warner Bros in talks for new 'Lord of the Rings' adaptation

Amazon and Warner Bros in talks for new 'Lord of the Rings' adaptation Can't Post

Check your calendars. This is not, I repeat NOT one of our famous (or infamous) TORn April fools jokes. Variety broke the story tonight that Warner Bros. and the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien are in talks with Amazon to develop a series based on J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings novels! According to Variety, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is personally involved in the negotiations, which are still in the very early stages.

From Variety: The studio and the Tolkien estate have been shopping a series based on the classic fantasy novels and their assortment of hobbits, wizards, and warriors, sparking a competitive situation from which Amazon has emerged as the frontrunner. Representatives for Amazon and Warner Bros. declined to comment.

Needless to say, this is far earlier than any of us thought we might see a remake of Tolkien's classic story and, although early days, it seems to present an opportunity for the story to be told in more detail with fewer cuts (perhaps a lifeline for the Bombadil and Scouring of the Shire fans amongst us). Even better, it presents the prospect of another blessedly fun round of endless preliminary casting, location, music, and CGI theories that we haven't seen in (can it really be) almost 20 years. Stay tuned here at TORn as we follow the progress, and Read more now at Variety.com.

Well, well! [In reply to] Can't Post

This news is dragging everyone out of the woodwork! Nice to see you here, TP!

Forget the crying hobbits, do you suppose we'd finally get that Parth Galen bathing scene? 😉


Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.
