The forthcoming TV adaption of Lord of the Rings from Amazon Studios has set Will Poulter (Midsommar) as one of its leads.
The Lord of the Rings series is being developed by the writing team of JD Payne and Patrick McKay. In addition, Game of Thrones alum Bryan Cogman has signed on as a consulting producer on the project with J.A. Bayona set to direct multiple episodes.
There isn’t much detail around Poulter’s role or the plot of the series but there seems to be a firm belief that it will be set in the second age of Tolkien’s mythology. The Second Age was the time in which the Rings of Power, including Sauron’s One Ring, came into existence.
