Warner Bros. dan New Line Cinema dilaporkan telah memeterai perjanjian untuk menghasilkan beberapa filem baharu berdasarkan siri fantasi The Lord of the Rings.

Embracer Group AB yang memegang hakcipta untuk francais The Lord of the Rings dan The Hobbit, dilaporkan telah menandatangani perjanjian yang membolehkan Warner Bros. untuk menghasilkan filem baharu berdasarkan buku karya J.R.R. Tolkien berkenaan. 

Memetik kenyataan Lee Guinchard yang juga CEO Freemode yang merupakan anak syarikat kepada  Embracer Group, beliau berkata; 

Following our recent acquisition of Middle-earth Enterprises, we’re thrilled to embark on this new collaborative journey with New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures, bringing the incomparable world of J.R.R. Tolkien back to the big screen in new and exciting ways. We understand how cherished these works are and working together with our partners at New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures, we plan to honor the past, look to the future, and adhere to the strongest level of quality and production values. 

Pengerusi dan CEO Warner Bros., Michael De Luca dan Pamela Abdy pula berkata dalam satu kenyataan; 

Twenty years ago, New Line took an unprecedented leap of faith to realize the incredible stories, characters and world of The Lord of the Rings on the big screen. The result was a landmark series of films that have been embraced by generations of fans. But for all the scope and detail lovingly packed into the two trilogies, the vast, complex and dazzling universe dreamed up by J.R.R. Tolkien remains largely unexplored on film. The opportunity to invite fans deeper into the cinematic world of Middle-earth is an honor, and we are excited to partner with Middle-earth Enterprises and Embracer on this adventure.

Buat masa ini, masih belum ada pengumuman rasmi tentang filem-filem yang akan dihasilkan, dan adakah ianya merupakan filem sekuel ataupun prekuel. Kemungkinan besar ianya merupakan filem spin-off watak-watak dari filem trilogi The Lord of the Rings terdahulu.
