Warner Bros. Pictures and Swedish Media Company Embracer Group 235095113/" data-type="post" data-id="1235095113">said earlier this year Will make more movies based on Lord of the Rings And the hobbit,
“I’m thrilled and I’m excited. I hope it’s good,” Wood told gq, “I’m surprised – I don’t know why I’m surprised, because there will definitely be more movies.”
New one Lord of the Ringswith a reimagined Harry PoteR is among the projects warner bros discovery is in the works.
“Obviously at the core of it is the desire to make a lot of money,” allows Wood. “It’s not like a bunch of executives are like, ‘Let’s make really awesome art.’ And, again, no offense to anyone, of course, it is commerce. But great art can come from commerce. So those two things are not mutually exclusive.
Wood said that the films he was in were a little different from that approach.
“But [Jackson’s] Lord of the Rings did not come out of that place. It stems from a passion for these books and a desire to see them become a reality. And I hope that ultimately that’s what drives everything forward with these later movies. I hope that whenever they hire a screenwriter and a filmmaker, it has the same driving factor at its core – that it be with respect for Tolkien’s material and an enthusiasm to explore it.
The team behind the Peter Jackson films – including Jackson – have claimed that they are being informed of the plans, although no announcements have been made regarding actual involvement.
