Amazon making progress on ‘Lord of The Rings’ prequel series

Amazon is still working on their Lord of The Rings prequel series. They’re reportedly in talks with Peter Jackson and J.R.R Tolkien’ son, and want to film in New Zealand.

In and interview with Deadline, the Amazon Stuidos head Jennifer Salke had this to say:

“Despite all the noise around Lord of the Rings, the deal only closed like a month ago. But in the meantime, I’ve sat with Simon Tolkien for a couple of hours, and (Amazon TV executive) Sharon (Tal Yguado) has spent tons of time with them. She had spent the last couple of months meeting anyone who had said, I’m really passionate about it and I want to get in and talk about the show and what’s possible. I think you’ll see us honing in on a strategy in the next month, which might involve a group of writers. Clearly, there’ll be someone in charge, but it involves the estate and Peter Jackson, and there’s a lot of conversations.”
