Despite Peter Jackson’s wonderful Oscar-winning take on JRR Tolkien’s fantastical world, Variety is reporting that Amazon wants to make a TV adaptation of the writer’s Lord of the Rings books.

This would be a massive undertaking; however this does fit in with Amazon’s plans to make their own Game of Thrones – a series that would become a pop culture sensation if done correctly.

Having worked out at least some of the issues they had with Tolkien’s estate, Warner Bros. is offering a big deal to an outlet, and apparently Amazon is in talks with them. Whilst TV would be a fitting home for Tolkien’s expansive stories – with the ability to include elements that Jackson and his co-writers had to cut out to save time – there’s still the issue of Jackson’s hugely successful, star-studded trilogy casting a large shadow over the potential reboot.
