Ian McKellen still wants to play Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings show

After six movies across 13 years and an Oscar nomination for playing the role, you’d think Sir Ian McKellen would be done playing Gandalf from the LORD OF THE RINGS series. At the very least he must be okay with passing on the role to someone else, right? Turns out the veteran thespian believes he has some more spellcasting left in him, and would probably say yes if asked to...

Peter Jackson says Weinstein made him blacklist Ashley Judd & Mira Sorvino

Once upon a time, Peter Jackson pitched his ambitious THE LORD OF THE RINGS project to Miramax, which at the time consisted of two movies instead of three.

Lord of the Rings TV series gets multi-season commitment from Amazon

Despite what many people think, I do like to remain optimistic about things. I've been proven wrong too many times to think that initial impressions will always be the correct ones.

The Lord of the Rings may live again as an Amazon TV series

I had serious doubts that J.R.R. Tolkein's "The Lord of the Rings" series could ever successfully make the transition to the big-screen, but what Peter Jackson was able to achieve with THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, THE TWO TOWERS, and THE RETURN OF THE KING was absolutely astounding.

Elijah Wood would like to star in the Y: The Last Man adaptation

Throughout the past decade, many have tried to bring comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra's epic Y: THE LAST MAN series to screen.
