Universal Studios' Dark Universe franchise is, for the most part, dead in the water right now. But things weren't always so bleak. In fact, the franchise nearly had Guillermo del Toro onboard to direct. Obviously, the movies would be a whole lot different to what we've actually got. Who knows, the Mummy might have actually been good!
UPDATE: Amazon has officially announced their involvement with the Tolkien Estate and Trust and Warner Bros. to produce a Lord of the Rings TV series. And the news came no less than 90 minutes after we reported the *possibility* on our radio show. Thanks for the timing there guys! Great news for fans of Middle-Earth
Could another trip to Middle-Earth be in the cards? If Warner Bros. and Amazon can work out a deal, it may be coming sooner than you'd think. Plus, Sean Astin weighs in on the proposal.
