Amazon to Release Lord of the Rings Adaptation?

Amazon allegedly plans on making a very interesting release. It has been claimed that the famous company is thinking about launching a Lord of the Rings television series. The project would be produced by Amazon in collaboration with Warner Bros.

There is no doubt in the fact that The Lord of the Rings is one of the most successful and complex movies of all time. And we can surely say that this story has a lot of fans throughout the world. So, definitely many fans would be very happy to hear that Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos has been working to bringing this story back on the screen.

Some sources have told Variety that Tolkien’s estate and Warner Bros are actually negotiating on this potential project. Sources also claimed that Amazon would be the buyer. Allegedly, the famous company’s CEO is very much involved in the negotiations and Bezos actually is very interested in such a project. The status of the negotiations is allegedly incipient.

The sources also explained Bezos’ interest in this project. In fact, he is said to have been the one coming up with the idea of launching such a series, as part of his plans to expand the work areas of Amazon Studios. Apparently, Bezos believes that considering the success that Game of Thrones had has, an adaptation of the Lord of the Rings could be a hit. Analysts claimed that if the CEO of Amazon would be able to find the perfect cast and director for this, the project could be a huge competitor to the success of Game of Thrones.

However, as already mentioned, such a project may take some time until being developed, as sources claimed that there are no writers or producers involved for the moment. Furthermore, there is no official confirmation from Amazon, Warner Bros or Tolkien’s estate that such a project might be in the works.

Kevin Spacey to Seek Treatment

Famous actor Kevin Spacey is going to seek treatment after being accused of sexual misconduct towards several young actors. The star was initially accused by a single actor, but then more allegations emerged against him.

The fact that Kevin Spacey will seek treatment was confirmed by a representative of the star. However, the rep did not reveal anything else on this subject, so it is not clear what for the actor will seek this treatment. “Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” a rep for Spacey said according to Variety. “No other information is available at this time,” the same rep went on to add.

The scandal involving Spacey first emerged after actor Anthony Rapp said that the star made a sexual advance towards him when he was only 14. Spacey was in his 20s back then. However, Rapp was not the only one accusing Spacey. After his confession, filmmaker Toney Montana said that back in 2003, Spacey “grabbed my whole package” at a bar in Los Angeles.

Another man whose identity was not revealed claimed in a talk with BBC that he was only 17 when he spent a weekend with Spacey at his home in New York. Allegedly, it all happened sometime in the mid-80s. The man said that Spacey tried to convince him to share a bed, but he refused and the actor “was sobbing.” The man said that the whole experience was traumatizing for him.

“In the morning, I woke up and [Spacey’s] head was on my stomach and his arms were wrapped around my torso, very affectionately, I would suppose,” he said. “He certainly wasn’t aggressive, but it was affectionate and certainly not something I was comfortable with as a heterosexual male,” he concluded.

A Mexican actor, Roberto Cavazos, said that sexual advances involving Spacey and young men were quite common when the star served as an artistic director at the Old Vic Theater in London. Spacey apologized when the allegations made by Rapp were first published, although he claimed he did not remember the incident. The actor has not responded to the other claims.

I’ve worked my whole life to get to where I am and you can’t lose that over something that you do in your spare time,” the star explained.

Ed also confessed that he did not realize what was happening and that he was starting to develop an issue. “I didn’t really notice it was happening. It just started gradually happening, and then some people took me to one side and were like, ‘Calm yourself down’… It’s all fun to begin with, it all starts off as a party and then you’re doing it on your own and it’s not, so that was a wake-up call and taking a year off,” he claimed.

The source explained that Harry “couldn’t be happier” with the baby news, although this might mean that the royal family is going to get a lot of spotlight.
