Studio Amazon found writers for the new series “the Lord of the rings”.
According to Variety, the project is based on the trilogy of JRR Tolkien, will be written by John D. Payne and Patrick McCain, who in his address expressed enthusiasm for the new task.
“The world of Tolkien is filled with greatness, soul, wisdom, and diversity. We are very excited to work with Amazon to re-animate the world. We feel like Frodo leaving the Shire with a huge responsibility. This is the beginning of an incredible adventure,” said Payne and McKay.
John D. Payne and Patrick McCain began to work together ever since when I was in high school over 20 years ago. Among their latest projects — “Star trek 4” for Paramount and “the jungle Cruise” for Disney.
Recall that Amazon plans to launch at least five seasons of the series “the Lord of the rings”. Taking into account the cost of special effects, actors work and the cost of production and marketing of the project budget could reach $ 1 billion (previously reported $ 500 million.), making it the most expensive in television history.
As previously reported, the protagonist of the first season of the series “the Lord of the rings” will be a young Aragorn.
