Embracer and WB Deal Means Several New Lord of the Rings Movies

During the same financial call that the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery lead David Zaslav revealed that Mortal Kombat 12 is coming this year, he also mentioned The Lord of the Rings. Film rights to adapt JRR Tolkien’s stories were part of the Embracer Group’s spending spree last year, and the co-chairmen and CEOs of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, have struck a deal with Embracer to make “several Lord of the Rings movies,” Zaslav said. “The Lord of the Rings is one of the most iconic storytelling franchises of all time, and we are very excited.”

A press release from the Embracer Group (opens in new tab) goes further without really adding any more real details, except to clarify that this is a “multi-year agreement to collaborate on feature films based on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit”.
