14 November 2017 General News

Amazon has confirmed plans to adapt Lord Of The Rings for TV, with the potential for spin-offs.

It was recently reported that Warner Bros Television and Amazon Studios were in talks to produce a TV version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels.

 It was also been reported that Netflix and HBO were also approached, but that Amazon emerged as the frontrunners. Amazon reportedly see the franchise as having potential to be as big on TV as Game of Thrones.

Sharon Tal Yguado, Amazon’s new head of scripted programming, has now confirmed the news. “The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen,” she said.

“We are honoured 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.”
