Lord of the Rings TV Series
Amazon Studios is planning a new tv series based on Tolkien’s character Aragorn! The new series will follow the adventures of a young Aragorn, before the saga of Lord of the Rings. Aragorn was originally played by Viggo Mortenson in Peter Jackson’s film trilogy. There is not much more information on what the series will be like, or who will be writing it. However, reports do say the cost of the series is $1 billion. Amazon Studios already spent millions to acquire the rights to the material, so time will tell if this was a smart or faulty move to make this series. Hopefully the writers will gather the most intriguing parts of Tolkien’s books and characters. No word yet on when the series is set to film.
Charmed is returning to the CW this fall in a new, exciting reboot of the series! Here is the first extended trailer for the new show, which features three witch sisters played by Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffrey, and Madeline Mantock. The trailer gives an in depth look at the plot and how the sisters come together. The original series was beloved by fans and ran for eight seasons. The new series debuts this fall on the CW.
Ten years have passed since Zombieland rolled into theaters and surprised audiences. Now it looks like Zombieland 2 is in the works! The first film, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, starred Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Wood Harrelson, Abigail Breslin, and a cameo by zombie Bill Murray. The movie was a comedy hit with fans, and on the tenth anniversary of the film the original writers are shooting for an October 2019 release of Zombieland 2. No other details have been given at this point, but the writers are hoping the original cast will return! Here’s hoping!
