Deadline is exclusively reporting that Robert Aramayo is the latest name to join the cast of Amazon’s upcoming epic fantasy series adaptation of The Lord Of The Rings.
The synopsis for the upcoming series, tweeted by the official twitter page for the series (along with a map) is as follows:
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. Welcome to the Second Age.
In the Tolkien mythology, the Second Age was the time in which the Rings of Power, including Sauron’s One Ring, came into existence.
Robert Aramayo (whose credits include Game of Thrones and The King’s Man) has been cast in the lead role of the young hero referred to as Beldor, which Will Poulter was originally cast in that role but departed due to scheduling conflicts.
The Lord of the Rings series is being developed by J.D Payne and Patrick McKay, with Bryan Cogman serving as consultant on the project and J.A Bayona attached to direct multiple episodes.
