TV Line, JD Payne and Patrick McKay (who are writing the fourth entry in the Star Trek film reboot franchise for J.J. Abrams, and also scripting Disney’s upcoming Jungle Cruise) have been hired to develop Amazon’s Lord of The Rings TV series. Payne and McKay released the following statement…

“The rich world that J.R.R. Tolkien created is filled with majesty and heart, wisdom and complexity. We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Amazon to bring it to life anew. We feel like Frodo, setting out from the Shire, with a great responsibility in our care — it is the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime.”
