One ring that rules and destroys everything! Most of us have already watched epic fantasy adventure films based on the novel The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. The amazing adaptation takes viewers to a world where magical rings persuade and corrupt the mind of their bearer. Forged under the careful eye of the dark lord, Sauron, these rings were created by unsuspecting Elves of Middle Earth. Fortunately, that devious ring was destroyed by the pure-hearted hobbit of the Shire. Now, decades after the very first adaptation, this influential film series is coming back. However, it looks like fans are not in agreement with the unexpected return of new films.
In a new post shared by Discussing Films on Twitter, they revealed that the new Lord of the Rings film is currently in production at Warner Bros. According to Variety, the studios have made a multiyear pact with Swedish gaming giant Embracer Group. But this time the movies will be based on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
