‘Lord Of The Rings’ TV series is being developed

A brand new television series based on the The Lord of the Rings novels could be heading to Amazon.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. Television and the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien are holding discussions about a deal with Amazon Studios to develop the project.

It’s not yet clear if the TV series would be a retelling of the story that was so successfully told in director Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy or if it would instead focus on different stories and characters in that world.

The complete The Lord of the Rings trilogy box set is available to buy on DVD now.

A new movie about the life of J.R.R. Tolkien recently began filming, starring Nicholas Hoult.
