I don’t think I’ve seen Jon Hamm (3) do much action, but he has the look of Bruce Wayne. Jake Gyllenhaal, their first choice, is just too pretty for Batman, IMO, Luke Evans (2) is on a roll with roles these days, Matt Bomer (14) and Wes Bently (13) look almost alike to me, and not rugged enough, Keanu Reeves  (5) and Colin Farrell (7) would piss me off, though he can act. Kyle Chandler (8) seems too nice. I’ve never heard of Anson Mount (10), Jason Clarke (11) is a no for the Bruce Wayne pieces. I’ve always liked Eric Bana (6). Michael C. Hall (9) is one of the best actors among the bunch and has about the same attractiveness level as Michael Keaton. Michael…

It’s Official! Amazon commits to Lord of The Rings TV series

by Alyse

Amazon announced today that they’ve acquired the global TV rights to J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings”. From the Hollywood Reporter comes further details (note: italics are mine to highlight key words/statements that should give us plenty to discuss in the months and years ahead!):

It’s Official: ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV Series Gets Multiple-Season Commitment at Amazon
by Lesley Goldberg

It’s official: Amazon Studios is going to make a Lord of the Rings TV series.

The retail giant and streaming outlet announced Monday that it has acquired global television rights to the Lord of the Rings franchise, based on the best-selling novels by J.R.R. Tolkien. Amazon has handed out a multiple-season commitment. The Amazon LOTR series will be produced in-house at Amazon Studios alongside the Tolkien Estate and Trust, publisher HarperCollins and Warner Bros. Entertainment’s New Line Cinema. A writer has not yet been attached.

Amazon’s LOTR series will be set in Middle-earth and explore new storylines preceding Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. The deal includes a potential additional spinoff series.

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

The news comes 10 days after word leaked that Amazon Studios was exploring a potential TV series based on the fantasy novels and subsequent feature film franchise, which was produced by New Line. The LOTR trilogy was named Amazon customers’ favorite book of the millennium in 1999.

The news comes four months after Warner Bros. and the Tolkien estate settled an $80 million lawsuit after a five-year battle. That happened after Warners offshoot New Line Cinema and the Tolkien estate waged a courtroom battle over profit participation from the film franchise that consisted of The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003), as well as 2013 prequel The Hobbit. The property is a multibillion-dollar worldwide franchise.

“We are delighted that Amazon, with its longstanding commitment to literature, is the home of the first-ever multiseason television series for The Lord of the Rings,” said Matt Galsor, a representative for the Tolkien Estate and Trust and HarperCollins. “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.”

Could this be true? Could this be done? The parties involved certainly have enough cash flow to do this and do it right …hmmm

Well, how about this? It would appear that soon, very soon I hope, Urban Grimshaw and the Shed Crew will be available to watch….

I have read the book, twice simply because of the slang, and have been waiting anxiously for the film to be released…..Perhaps there is hope still as this looks very promising……Although I would prefer a DVD to purchase as I’ve had a horrible experience with Digital Theater and them allowing me to finally view The Crucible that I had bought and paid for…….

 

However, if its a digital release, I’ll buy it, but if anyone is listening or reading this, a DVD would be preferable…..20dc7c67e447736e5c00bf9c7b9d8e26
