'Lord of the Rings' Is Becoming a TV Series
Amazon is the potential buyer for a new project from Warner Bros.
Published Nov 06, 2017Before Peter Jackson started "winging it" with The Hobbit movies, his Lord of the Rings trilogy served as some of the best fantasy films of all time. Thankfully, it looks as if J.R.R. Tolkien's work will be adapted once more with a potential new series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon is the top potential buyer for a new television series based on the books from Warner Bros. Television.
The project is still in its earliest stages as Warner Bros. attempts to finalize rights issues with the Tolkien estate. That said, Amazon has showed increasing interest in genre fare, so it would make sense if the show landed there.
Stay tuned for more information on a potential Lord of the Rings TV series as it becomes available.
