    Amazon Lord Of The Rings TV Series

    Looks like it's happening and Ian McKellen might reprise his role as Gandalf.

    "Amazon has made a multi-season production commitment to “Lord of the Rings,” which looks set to be the most expensive series ever made. The deal also covers potential spinoffs and will be produced by Amazon Studios in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line Cinema."

    It's definitely happening. Amazon is already $250 million dollars in the hole. And that was just for the rights! Add an extra $150 million or so for each season. No wonder McKellan sounds like he wants in.

    "Unexplored stories based on the writings of JRR Tolkien." It's kind of vague... I hope they're new stories just based on his world and characters. I'd hate to see them getting into The Silmarillion or something.
