HBO tried to remake the classic ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy



According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO tried to produce a remake of “The Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy in a series format before Amazon Prime Video secured the production rights to “The Rings of Power.”

HBO has made a proposal to the Tolkien Estate (the organization that owns the legal rights to JRR Tolkien’s work) for a “Lord of the Rings” series.

HBO’s proposal would be a “reinterpretation” of the Third Age of Middle-earth, that is to say essentially to make a remake of Peter Jackson’s cinematic trilogy, in series format.

Netflix has been interested in making two projects, one centered on Gandalf and the other on Aragorn, with a source saying Netflix’s proposal “scared off the rights holders”.
