Big day for fans of Fantasy. WhileAlexandre astier has just revealed twenty posters of Kaamelott: First Stream with shocking quotes, we learn that Warner Bros and New Line are preparing a film The Lord of the Rings.
An ambitious new project
JRR Tolkien fans don’t know where to turn! As we eagerly await the series The Lord of the Rings from Amazon, despite the recent controversy over him, as well as the video game around the character of Gollum, Warner Bros and New Line are preparing a new feature film. And this in a very particular context for the license drawn from the imagination of Tolkien, taking into account the fact that the first part of the Peter Jackson trilogy will celebrate its twentieth anniversary this year.
Rest assured : it will not be a remake of the Jackson trilogy. The three films enjoy such popularity that relaunching it would be artistic suicide. It will bean animated film, titled The Lord of the Rings : The War of the Rohirrim, whose action takes place 250 years before the events of Lord of the Rings. The information was revealed by our American colleagues from Deadline.
The film will be based on a little-known episode of Middle-earth, recounted in the Appendices of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers : the War between the Rohirrim (the people of Rohan) and the Dunlendings (the inhabitants of Dunlande). During this battle, the Rohirrim followed their king Helm Hammerhand (Helm Poing de Marteau, in French), and found refuge in this emblematic place of Tolkien’s work, in which the great battle of the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, which opposed the legions of Saruman to the people of Rohan.
Directed by Kenji Kamiyama, The Lord of the Rings : The War of the Rohirrim will benefit from the expertise of Philippa Boyens, a close associate of Peter Jackson, who worked on the writing of the two trilogies, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbits (she was also awarded the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The king’s return).
The presence of Kenji Kamiyama also has something to intrigue strongly the fans, who can hope for an animated film inspired by Japanese animation. In addition, Kamiyama’s CV is exemplary, since he collaborated with Hayao Miyazaki on Kiki’s Delivery Service, Katsuhiro Otomo sur Akira, worked on the series City Hunter (Nicky Larson, in French) and directed the series Ghost in the Shell : Stand Alone Complex.
Anyway, this new project in development, in addition to demonstrating the interest that the public and the studios have for the work of JRR Tolkien, also recalls how much the Appendices of Lord of the Rings are full of events just waiting to be adapted to the cinema. It is recalled that part of the events of the trilogy of Hobbit (notably Gandalf’s quest for the Necromancer) is taken from Appendices of Return of the King. Otherwise, many events of Silmarillion could be the subject of a film or television adaptation, starting with the love story between Beren and Luthien.
