The Lord of the Rings TV series is officially a go over at Amazon and the corporate giant is clearly going all-in on making this happen
Amazon has committed to produce multiple seasons of a new television series based on the epic fantasy novel.
Amazon Prime has announced plans to make a Lord of the Rings TV show with the support of the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line Cinema. Speaking about the project, Head of Scripted Series at Amazon Studios, Sharon Tal Yguado, said: "The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen".
Note that the price tag being reported included only the television rights and not any development or productions costs, which could equal those totals. "Sharon and the team at Amazon Studios have exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on J.R.R. Tolkien's original writings".
Starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom and others, the three films combined to gross more than United States dollars 2.9 billion worldwide. Its studio started in 2010 with a focus on unique shows beloved by critics, such as "Transparent", about a father coming out as transgender to his family.
