Check this out: https://www.rappler....tv-series-talks

 

 

Amazon Studios is reportedly planning to turn JRR Tolkien’s classic Lord of the Rings (LOTR) novels into a series.

According to Variety, the studio is already in talks with Warner Bros. Television and Tolkien’s estate to acquire rights to the fantasy series. Negotiations are still in early stages and no deal has been reached yet, though Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is reported to be part of the talks.

 

Forbes says that the rights to LOTR are being sold by the author's estate for $200 to $250 million.

A series adaptation of LOTR is seen as Amazon’s answer to its online streaming competitors, which all have geek-approved, fantasy/ sci-fi series at the helm. HBO has the wildly successful Game of Thrones, while Netflix has Stranger Things, and several shows set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, considering there has already been a LOTR film trilogy, as well as a follow-up trilogy on The Hobbit – both of which are well-loved by fans and critics alike – it remains to be seen whether developing their own adaptation of the high fantasy classic will work in Amazon’s favor.

 

 

If Amazon can pull this out with the same quality like GOT, that would be insane too watch..

 

Especially fo rme as a huge LOR Fan..

Bezos has the money. If it happens they need to go all out. Nothing but the best, no budget restrictions.

That would suck. What is so good about it?

 

If amazon really wants to spend money, they should do the Silmarillion then.
