New Lord Of The Rings movies officially announced

New Lord of the Rings films are on the way, after a deal was struck between Warner Bros and New Line Cinema.

It’s all happening in the world of The Lord of the Rings. It’s been confirmed by both New Line and Warner Bros. that a deal has been made to create several new films set in Middle-earth.

Just last week, The Embracer Group announced that they’d release five Lord of the Rings games between now and March 2024. This should include Daedalic Entertainment’s Lord of the Rings: Gollum which has experienced several delays, plus there’s The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria. Production is underway on Amazon’s second season of The Rings of Power, plus we’re all very excited about Private Division and Weta Workshop’s upcoming release set in Middle-earth.

Speaking of Lord of the Rings: Gollum, take a look at the game below.

As reported by Deadline, we now know that more Lord of the Rings films are in the works as well. New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures have struck a multi-year agreement which will see them team up with The Embracer Group’s Middle-earth Enterprises to create the new LOTR films. The news was announced by Warner Bros. Discovery’s CEO David Zaslav during the company’s Q4 earnings call.

“Following our recent acquisition of Middle-earth Enterprises, we’re thrilled to embark on this new collaborative journey with New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures, bringing the incomparable world of J.R.R. Tolkien back to the big screen in new and exciting ways,” Lee Guinchard, CEO of Embracer Group’s operative group Freemode, said (via Deadline). “We understand how cherished these works are, and working together with our partners at New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures, we plan to honour the past, look to the future, and adhere to the strongest level of quality and production values.”

This does not affect a deal which saw Amazon acquire the TV rights to the Tolkien estate for $250 million in 2018.
