Legendary Composer Howard Shore In Talks to Return for Amazon Studios’ Lord of the Rings TV Series

Amazon Studios has reportedly signed composer Howard Shore to return for the upcoming Lord of the Rings TV series. The news comes just weeks after HBO announced they would not be making a Game of Thrones prequel.

Legendary composer Howard Shore is in talks to return for Amazon Studios’ Lord of the Rings TV series. The project will be a prequel to Peter Jackson’s trilogy and focus on an earlier time period.

Howard Shore, the renowned composer who composed the soundtracks for Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film trilogies, is in negotiations to return for Amazon Studios’ forthcoming Middle-earth TV series, according to Deadline.

This is a huge step forward for the show, since Shore’s music is now almost associated with the series. His soundtracks for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit were so well received that he received not one, not two, but three Academy Awards.

It’s unknown how much Amazon plans to pay Shore for his musical prowess, but the Lord of the Rings franchise has already cost the studio a fortune. According to reports, the first season alone cost $465 million to produce, making it the most costly TV series of all time if true.

The Fly, David Cronenberg’s disgusting remake of a scientist who accidentally transforms into a giant man/fly hybrid as part of a teleportation experiment gone wrong and eventually has his head blown off, and The Silence of the Lambs, the 1991 thriller that helped popularize psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter, are two of Shore’s other notable soundtracks.

Amazon’s summary for their Lord of the Rings TV series is as follows:

The heroic tales of Middle-legendary earth’s Second Age are brought to life for the first time on film in Amazon Studios’ upcoming series. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will transport viewers to a time when great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were put to the test, hope hung by the thinnest of threads, and the greatest villain to ever flow from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover the entire world in darkness. The series begins in a period of relative calm and follows an ensemble cast of people, both old and new, as they face the long-feared return of evil to Middle-earth. These countries and characters will carve out legacies that will live on long after they are gone, from the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the beautiful woods of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the stunning island kingdom of Nmenor, to the furthest corners of the globe.

On September 2, 2022, Amazon Studios’ The Lord of the Rings series will debut exclusively on Prime Video. The show’s title is yet to be determined.
