I will legitimately commit murder if this leads to Hollywood fucking up The Silmarillion. If someone's willing to hire a competent crew and director and pay the money for the effects, and make it a TV/web series so there's space to allow things to play out, fine. But if they fuck that up and we end up with the DCU version of Middle Earth from here on out...

The Beatles planned to do a live-action version with Paul McCartney as Frodo Baggins, Ringo Starr as Sam Gamgee, George Harrison as Gandalf, and John Lennon as Gollum. The group approached Stanley Kubrick to direct the film. Even though he briefly considered directing the film, Kubrick turned the offer down, as he felt the novel was unfilmable due to its immensity

 

Would it have been kino?

Countdown to a Beren and Luthien holiday movie coming in 3, 2, 1

 

But no the stories can be fab in the right hands. Unlikely that they will get those right hands though, unfortunately
