Filmable....yes, viable only perhaps. [In reply to] Can't Post

We now have the technology to realise all visual aspects which would have been a huge hurdle when JRRT made these comments.

People now accept protracted series of films (LOTR, Harry Potter) so to canonically translate LOTR may take 8+ movies but ardent fans would be happy with that.

Lastly I read in another thread here JRRT said narrative storytelling did not translate well to drama. I simply disagree with this. Maybe unconventional means may have to be employed but it could be done by the suitably skilled, and such great source material would trasnscend any apparent shortcomings in translation between mediums.
