I'll bet Warner Bros have their eyes on Disney and Star Wars right now [In reply to] Can't Post

There are many parallels to be drawn between the Star Wars series and the Middle-earth films, from their cultural impact to the manner in which they were produced. If Disney's current attempt to expand Star Wars with a sequel trilogy and a continuous stream of spin-off films proves successful, I wouldn't be surprised to see Warner Bros try to replicate this strategy with Tolkien. The Silmarillion and related works may be off the table, but there's nothing to stop them from making up their own original Middle-earth stories. Yes, it would essentially be big-budget fan-fiction, but it's hard not to imagine audiences forking over their cash to see a Lord of the Rings sequel (or three).

There is truth in this, espcially since in many places it is only the details of [In reply to] Can't Post

The Silmarillion that are really off limits. An overview of Feanor's hopeless war against The Iron Throne can be found IN LOTR, and the entire history of The Second Age is presented there, in brief. It would be a crappier tale, but they could definitely loophole their way into the main gist of at least several key aspects of the story.

More middle earth films [In reply to] Can't Post

 I for one would definitely want to see a movie centering on Feanor and the Silmarils. Their theft by Melkor and Ungoliant, the death of the trees, The terrible oath that Feanor makes his sons vow and the pain and misery that the oath brings to Miiddle earth, the flight from the blessed realm and the kin slaying, Feanors battle with Melkor at the Gates of Angband and his firey death. It would be a great movie to this Tolkien fan i can assure you but it will probably never happen unless as a CGI
creation.
