Rumours are stirring regarding the details of the Lord of the Rings TV Series being produced by Amazon Studios, reports are suggesting that Amazon paid $1 Billion dollars for a 5 season commitment. I also heard that Jeff Bezos personally handled the negotiations.
There have also been rumours that Peter Jackson (Director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy) will be involved in the project!
All of these reports are early, but if true, it shows Amazon’s commitment to this project and should result in a TV series that will rival HBO’s Game of Thrones.
I for one am very interested to see what comes of this, I am having trouble imagining which route the series will take? Will they centre the 5 season’s around Frodo returning the Ring to Mordor or will this be entirely different from the books/movies?
