Lord of the Rings/Hobbit One Ring

Earlier this month it was reported that Amazon was in talks with Warner Bros. Television and the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien for the rights to adapt The Lord of the Rings into a TV series.

As it turns out, things were farther along than we thought. Amazon has confirmed that they have now reached a deal, and are officially committed to not just one single season of a Lord of the Rings TV series, but a multi-season adaptation of the timeless fantasy books Tolkien penned. But it won’t just be a new take on the story we saw play out in Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy. Instead, the series will focus on new storylines which take place before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring. And there’s even an added bonus to the deal that could mean an eventual spinoff series as well.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Rejoice, fantasy fans! When the final season of Game of Thrones comes to a close, we no longer have to be devastated about it. OK—we don’t have to be devastated for too long, anyway. Let’s be honest, I weep at least once a week just thinking about it. But I swallow a pint of Ben & Jerry’s like it’s an Advil, and move on with my day. Like a responsible adult. Other networks would sacrifice anything adorable you can think of to have what HBO has in Thrones, but instead of finding that next untapped book series to adapt into a hit, one big name is looking to an old classic: The Lord of the Rings.

Amazon Studios has entered into negotiations with Warner Brothers Television and author J.R.R. Tolkien‘s estate in hopes of developing a TV series based on Tolkien’s legendary story.

‘Arrow’: Inside Look Into 3.17 “Suicidal Tendencies” (Video)

Arrow Diggle Lyla Wedding

John Diggle and Lyla Michaels cordially invite you to their wedding! The reception will be hosted by… the Suicide Squad! Held at… a secret location.

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim delves deeper into the upcoming 17th episode of Arrow Season 3, titled “Suicidal Tendencies,” which is packed with a lot of the good stuff we’ve been waiting for. Take it from Deadshot (Michael Rowe), who exclaims “Suicide Squad rides again.” Their mission starts in their wedding limo, complete with champagne and extra guests. We see the return of Cupid (Amy Gumenick), whose obsession with the Arrow (Stephen Amell) caused her to kill for his attention. This mission comes right on the tail of Diggle and Oliver’s journey to Nanda Parbat to save Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) from Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable), in 3.16 “The Offer.” That offer, of course was for Oliver to take over as the new Ra’s al Ghul, an offer he seriously considered. We now know that the offer is not one he can refuse, so look forward to that conflict playing out before the end of the season.

The video also promises “the Arrow vs. the Atom. An epic, epic battle.” You can watch it along with a promo video for the episode below.

TV Series Based On Asimov’s ‘Foundation’ Being Developed By ‘Interstellar’ Writer For HBO

Isaac Asimov's Foundation Series

Fans of Isaac Asimov‘s legendary science fiction series, “Foundation,” found themselves having nightmares at the news that 2012 and 1998’s Godzilla director Roland Emmerich was making a CG-heavy, Avatar-style trilogy of movies based on the books. That was back in 2010, and, thankfully, things didn’t work out.

Now comes a new attempt at adapting the “Foundation” series that might just be a little more appealing to fans…those who are open to an adaptation in the first place, anyway. It’s being reported that Interstellar writer Jonathan Nolan is developing a TV series based on Asimov’s books for HBO.

Tom Hanks in Big

Taking popular movies from the past and reworking them as potential TV shows of the future is all the rage right now. A TV version of Beverly Hills Cop was in the works for a while but never played out. A show based on the ’80s movie Real Genius and the ’90s movie Problem Child were just recently announced. And who can forget the sports drama Necessary Roughness, which is based of course on the classic football comedy of the same name (wait, that can’t be right…).

Now comes word of a pair of new TV shows being developed that are based on hit movies. The first is based on the Tom Hanks classic Big, while the other will be based on the buddy cop movie Rush Hour, which starred Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker.
