Amazon Confirms the Setting of Its Lord of the Rings Series original series may be a few years away, but it’s easily one of Amazon’s most anticipated projects. Peter Jackson’s LOTR trilogy is still beloved by fans, and there’s not a lot of demand for a rehash. Fortunately, Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series is going to focus on a rarely explored era of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth. Via , Amazon’s LOTR twitter account revealed a new map of Middle-Earth, and confirmed that the show will be set in the Second Age. That places approximately 3,000 years of history between the series and the beginning of LOTR. One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. — The Lord of the Rings on Prime (@LOTRonPrime) Welcome to the Second Age: — The Lord of the Rings on Prime (@LOTRonPrime) RELATED: Casual fans may not realize it, but Jackson’s Fellowship of the Rings actually depicted the end of the Second Age, when the last alliance of elves and men confronted Sauron’s forces. The Second Age covered nearly 3,441 years, and it began after the banishment of Morgoth, the dark lord before Sauron. There’s a lot of story potential in that time, including the rise of Sauron, the creation of the One Ring, and the emergence of the Ringwraiths. Amazon’s map also includes Númenor, an island kingdom of men that was lost beneath the sea to a cataclysm. In Tolkien’s mythos, Sauron was captured by the king of Númenor, but he slowly corrupted the kingdom from within. Only the intervention of the deity, Eru, prevented Sauron’s plans and led to the destruction of Númenor. Production has yet to begin for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series, but is expected to premiere in 2021. Are you intrigued by the setting of the LOTR series? Let us know in the comment section below!

Nancy Drew pilot adds Maddison Jaizani & Alex Saxon is reporting that The CW’s Nancy Drew pilot has cast Maddison Jaizani (Versailles, Into the Badlands, Tyrant) and Alex Saxon (The Fix, The Fosters, Finding Carter) as series regulars. The duo will join cast members Kennedy McMann (Law & Order: SVU) and Tunji Kasim (Florence Foster Jenkins). The Nancy Drew pilot centers on 18-year-old Nancy Drew (McMann) and is set in the summer after her high school graduation. She thought she’d be leaving her hometown for college, but when a family tragedy holds her back another year, she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation. Along the way, she uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined. Jaizani will play Bess, a refined young woman whose wealthy background sets her apart from Nancy. But when they both become suspects in the same murder, Bess proves to be a spirited ally in the search for the real killer, all the while doing whatever it takes to keep her own dark secrets hidden. In the 2007 movie starring Emma Roberts as Nancy Drew, Bess was played by Amy Bruckner. Saxon will portray Ace, a charming dishwasher with a philosophical bent; his provocative insights on the murder investigation will lead Nancy to conclude that there’s much more to this supposed burnout than meets the eye. From Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire and CBS TV Studios, the Nancy Drew pilot is written and executive produced by Noga Landau, Schwartz, and Savage, and is directed by Larry Teng. Melinda Hsu Taylor also serves as executive producer. A number of attempts to capitalize on Nancy Drew have come and gone over the years, dating all the way back to 1938 when Warner Bros. first purchased the character created by Edward Stratemeyer as a counter to his Hardy Boys series. Most recently, a 2007 film from Warner Bros. starring Emma Roberts fizzled at the box office ($30.7 million worldwide on a $20 million budget) and with critics (49% on Rotten Tomatoes), thus canceling the studios . NBC attempted to last year via Doubt creators Tony Phelan, Joan Rater and Dan Jinks and, funny enough, CBS TV Studios with Nancy Drew, featuring an older incarnation of the character. The show never materialized. CBS Studios, Phelan, Rater and Jinks also previously adapted the character into Drew starring Sarah Shahi, which went to pilot and got close to a series order, but was ultimately scrapped. Drew likewise served more as a sequel to the books and featured a much older, grittier version of the character. Currently, there’s a Nancy Drew from Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, and Red 56 titled Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, starring It’s Sophia Lillis as the titular hero. The film, directed by Katt Shea (Poison Ivy) from the screenwriting team of Nina Fiore and John Herrera (The Handmaid’s Tale, The Vampire Diaries), focuses on Nancy Drew, a smart high schooler with a penchant for keen observation and deduction, who stumbles upon the haunting of a local home. A bit of an outsider struggling to fit into her new surroundings, Nancy and her pals set out to solve the mystery, make new friends, and establish their place in the community. No release date has been announced for the film adaptation, which is currently in post-production. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) The post appeared first on .

This project will mark the first time the story will be adapted for screen because author García Márquez refuses to sell the rights to his novel when he was alive. “For decades, our father was reluctant to sell the film rights to Cien Años de Soledad because he believed that it could not be made under the time constraints of a feature film, or that producing it in a language other than Spanish would not do it justice,” García Márquez’s son Rodrigo Garcia said in a statement. “But in the current golden age of series, with the level of talented writing and directing, the cinematic quality of content, and the acceptance by worldwide audiences of programs in foreign languages, the time could not be better to bring an adaptation to the extraordinary global viewership that Netflix provides. We are excited to support Netflix and the filmmakers in this venture, and eager to see the final product.” Garcia will serve as the upcoming series’ executive producer along with his brother Gonzalo García Barcha. It will be shot in Columbia which is the novel’s original setting. The adaptation is set to debut in 2020, exclusively on Netflix. “We are incredibly honored to be entrusted with the first filmed adaptation of One Hundred Years of Solitude, a timeless and iconic story from Latin America that we are thrilled to share with the world,” Netflix’s Vice President of Spanish Language Originals Francisco Ramos said. “We know our members around the world love watching Spanish-language films and series and we feel this will be a perfect match of project and our platform.” García Márquez is regarded as one of the best Spanish-language authors. He died of pneumonia at the old age of 87 in April 17, 2014. He is also best known for his other works such as The Autumn of the Patriarch, Love in the Time of Cholera, and the Chronicle of a Death Fortold.

The 7 Best Paul Rudd Roles Paul Rudd is likable. There is no better single word to describe him. He may not be lauded for range, but only because he likes to shoot comedies so much. As films like Perks of Being a Wallflower show, he is perfectly capable in dramas. But his ability to draw a comedic audience is nearly unmatched. His likeability is almost to the detriment of some of his roles. You may find yourself rooting for even his dumbest and most inconsiderate characters because of the warm Midwestern actor underneath the character. Comedy or otherwise — but mostly comedy — here are his best roles to date. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) Plain and simple, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is Jason Segel’s magnum opus. Both writer and star of the film, he deserves much praise for making an undeniably funny but affecting film. His character Peter Bretter is dumped by his celebrity girlfriend, the titular Sarah Marshall (). To cope, he takes a vacation to Hawaii. Once there, however, he finds Sarah and her new boyfriend, rockstar Aldous Snow () are also staying at the hotel. Rudd gives one of the funniest bit performances in the whole film as Chuck, a well-meaning surf instructor who is far from the sharpest knife in the drawer. . Clueless (1995) Clueless is perhaps the best film adaptation of a Jane Austen novel. If not, it is assuredly the most fun. Based on her novel Emma, the eponymous character is supplanted by Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone). Austen’s original setting of a small 19th century English village is exchanged for Beverly Hills in the 1990s. The character dynamics, however, are very much the same. Ever the haphazard matchmaker for others, Cher is mostly disinterested in finding love for herself. Rudd, for his part, plays Josh Lucas, Cher’s ex-stepbrother and the only person in her life who cares about her enough to call her out for her missteps. It is a great role in a great film. . Wet Hot American Summer (2001), Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (2015), Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (2017) The Wet Hot American Summer expanded universe is dumb. David Wain and Michael Showalter developed it as such. Set in 1981, one would expect many of the jokes to be based on the silliest tendencies of the 80s as a decade. Not so, as the film — and its subsequent series — tend to lean into bizarre absurdity over anything else. With comic actors who are way too old to be playing high school summer camp counselors, there is much to enjoy in the Wet Hot American Summer Films. Namely Rudd’s character, Andy, the perennial bad boy who whines more than he cracks wise. . The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005) The 40-Year-Old Virgin remains one of Judd Apatow’s best films, if not the very best, in spite of it being his directorial debut. Steve Carell — co-writer of the film — plays Andy Stitzer, a lonely tech store employee. When his coworkers (Rudd, Seth Rogen, Romany Malco, and Gerry Bednob) discover he is still a virgin, they do their best to help him. Their help results in a lot of lows and few highs, but he begins to develop relationships with each of them, as well as an intriguing woman named Trish (Catherine Keener). As usual, Rudd delivers a wholly funny and enjoyable performance. . Ant-Man (2015), Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Taking on the role of a superhero would have surprised Rudd fans a decade ago. Many were used to him playing the comedic character and punchline. Putting Rudd at the center of a mass-market picture was a bit of a risk on the part of the powers that be at Marvel. Two films — so far — and more than a billion dollars at the box office later, it turned out to be a good one. Rudd for his part is good as ever, breaking up the monotony by blending the role of a superhero with the fool with a winning personality character that audiences have come to expect from him. . . Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004), Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) It is hard to overstate the cultural power of the Anchorman movies. A decade and a half later, a quick scroll through an internet comment section will likely yield a reference to the original film. Something about Will Ferrell’s performance as Ron Burgundy, the absurd and misogynistic 1970s broadcast news reporter has continued to be a draw to audiences. His co-stars deserve plenty of credit as well. Rounding out Burgundy’s news team are Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), “Champ” Kind (David Koechner), Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), and Brian Fantana (Rudd). Without them, Ferrell would have no one to work off of in the fast-and-loose style of comedy utilized in the films. . Parks and Recreation (2009 to 2015) The now-beloved sitcom got off to a rocky start with its first couple of seasons. The show struggled to find its individual voice, feeling like a remake of The Office above anything else. With the arrival of Adam Scott and Rob Lowe, the show began to figure out where it should go. Paul Rudd’s recurring character Bobby Newport was a welcome addition as well. Bobby is the dimwitted heir to a local but massive candy company. He arrives on the scene as protagonist Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler)’s biggest competition in the race for city council member. He leads this race in spite of his substantial ineptitude due to the sizeable popularity of his family’s company. It’s simply more of what Rudd does best: giving a performance of a dumb but loveable character. .
