Amazon, at the Television Critics Association press tour, finally land down some major hints for The Lord of the Rings. And we couldn’t be more excited.
The creative heads will definitely sound familiar to you since they have already been at tasks to land you with some major #fantasy-dramaseries goals before.
The confirmed talents involve Bruce Richmond from Game of Thrones ( Oh freak! really), executive producers Lindsey Weber who gave hits like 10 Cloverfield Lane and Gene Kelly from Boardwalk Empire.
Other crew members include Sharon Tal Yguado; Breaking Bad fame Gennifer Hutchison and writer-producer Jason Cahill from The Sopranos. Whilst Amazon is speculating over other big names of the industry that are yet to be tied-up with.

Justin Doble (Stranger Things), Bryan Cogman from Game of Thrones (again), Toy Story fame Stephany Folsom and last but not the least Hannibal co-producer Helen Shang.
Whoa! we would be seeing so much talent-shreds under one hut, this time. The names are alone enough to give me some better-lasting goosebumps.
Amazon drops hints over series shoots
Meanwhile, Amazon has already geared up for a mini-talent comp over picking out the best Hollywood brains for the billion-worth mini-series.
However, the agency was sure enough to tap JA Boyana for chairing the director position. The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director will be perfecting the pilot episode of Lord of the Rings series.
JA was fast enough to respond over Amazon’s once in a lifetime kinda request over directing The Lord of the Rings.
J.R.R. Tolkien created one of the most extraordinary and inspiring stories of all time. I can’t wait to take audiences around the world to Middle-earth and have them discover the wonders of the Second Age, with a never before seen story.https://t.co/imSFOSh5MJ

Amazon also recruited Suicide Squad designer Kate Hawley and production designer Rick Heinrichs who has previously led the dope, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Meanwhile, Jason Smith (The Revenant) will supervise the visual effect department and John Howe is going to represent Lord of the Rings through his conceptual art.
We all have been eagerly waiting for the official final teaser of the Rings mini-series. And despite all the zeal and excitement, the Lord of the Rings is worth our wait.
