By deadline, Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore is in talks to return to mark Amazon’s highly anticipated the Lord of the Rings series, which will begin on September 2, 2022.
Shore composed the three of Peter Jackson the Lord of the Rings movie as well as Jackson Hobbit trilogy. Shore’s work on the series won three Oscars: Best Score for Camaraderie and Return of the king and Best song for ROTK. He also received three Golden Globes and four Grammys.
The epic new drama brings the legendary story of the Second Age of Middle-earth by JRR Tolkien for the very first time. Beginning in a time of relative peace, thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books, the series follows a set of characters, both familiar and new, as they face the dreaded re-emergence of evil in Middle-earth.
The untitled the Lord of the Rings series will feature a cast including Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman and Sara Zwangobani.
The series is developed and produced by JD Payne and Patrick McKay, who serve as showrunners. Even before going into production for the first season, Amazon Studios granted the project a second season renewal.
