Something 'precious' is on the way as Amazon and Warner Bros are 'in talks'.
A Lord Of the Rings TV series could actually be happening this time after many a rumour.
The Hobbits, Elves and other magical creatures may be storming onto a TV screen near you after Variety magazine reported that a show is 'in early stages' but 'no deal is set yet'.
Rumour has it that Warner Bros have been looking for a home for the new movie-turned TV series, and Amazon studios came out on top.
Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos has been named to be 'personally involved' in negotiations with the series set to be based on the novels rather than the film.
while some Lord Of the Rings fans have been jumping for joy at the news...
