Amazon Wants Evangeline Lilly To Return For “The Lord Of The Rings” Show

According to sources close to WGTC – the same ones who said the Fast & Furious franchise would be heading to space and a new Scream movie is in development, both of which were correct – Evangeline Lilly is being courted by the producers to reprise her iconic role of Tauriel at some point during the show’s run.

From what we understand, the series will eventually catch up to The Hobbit timeline – as it’s said to take place before the events of that story – which is when audiences were first introduced to Lilly’s Tauriel. Once that happens, Amazon would like the actress to return to don her notorious pointy ears onscreen. They’ve allegedly already discussed the idea with the 41-year-old as well, who we’re hoping is receptive to it and agrees to journey back to Middle-earth.

Of course, the actress garnered critical acclaim and several award nominations for her portrayal of the heroic Woodland Elf. Though the warrior was not originally in any of J.R.R. Tolkien’s work, she quickly became a hit with fans after her appearance in the second and third films of the trilogy. As such, seeing more of her in any capacity would definitely be a treat for viewers.

Whether Tauriel’s recurrence would just be via a cameo or as a permanent member of the cast remains to be seen, but we know for sure that she won’t be the only big name character returning to the franchise. Galadriel, Elrond, and Sauron have also all been confirmed for the series, along with many all-new faces.

Tell us, though, would you like to see Evangeline Lilly return at some point during the show? Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings is expected to debut at some point in 2021.

It seemed the majority of her followers liked her new look, with just a few fans asking what inspired the cut.

But the Lost star didn’t indicate on social media why she cut her hair.

However, she has a number of projects coming up, so the new look could be part of her preparation for any number of roles.

Evangeline has been cast in sci-fi mini-series Albedo about a murder mystery aboard an isolated space station.  The six-part series has yet to set a release date.

She will also star with Armie Hammer, Gary Oldman and Sam Worthington in writer-director Nicholas Jarecki’s drug smuggling drama, Dreamland, due out next year.

And her romantic comedy-drama Happy Life is in pre-production.

Gary Oldman, Armie Hammer, Evangeline Lilly Team for Opioid Thriller “Dreamland”

Great news! Evangeline, Gary Oldman and Armie Hammer will star in the new thriller of writer and director Nicholas Jarecki, “Dreamland”. Read below an article published by THR!

The Hollywood Reporter – The European Film Market just got a little more star-studded thanks to Gary Oldman, Armie Hammer and Evangeline Lilly, who are set to team up for Dreamland, an “opioid thriller” from Nicholas Jarecki and the follow-up to his 2012 debut Arbitrage.

German actress Veronica Ferres will also star in the project, written by Jarecki and billed as the first theatrical film to tackle the international opioid crisis. Principal photography is underway in Montreal and Detroit, with Lisa Wilson due to introduce buyers to the project in Berlin through her Solution Entertainment Group. William Morris Endeavor represents U.S. rights with LGNA Legal.

In Dreamland, three stories about the world of opioids collide: a drug trafficker arranges a multi-cartel fentanyl smuggling operation between Canada and the U.S., an architect recovering from an OxyContin addiction tracks down the truth behind her son’s involvement with narcotics, and a university professor battles unexpected revelations about his research employer, a drug company with deep government influence bringing a new “non-addictive” painkiller to market— all in a thinking person’s gangster tale of high and low.

“The devastating impact of the opioid crisis reaches all corners of society,” said Jarecki, who saw Arbitrage, starring Richard Gere, become both a critical and commercial hit, setting a record as the highest-grossing independent day and date release of all time. “Gary, Armie and Evangeline are the perfect performers to bring the human face of this epidemic to audiences everywhere.”

Producers are Jarecki and Cassian Elwes (Dallas Buyers Club), who financed together through Jarecki’s Green Room Films and its continuing relationship with MUFG Union Bank. Michael Suppes and Tony Hsieh executive produce along with Douglas Urbanski. Mohammed Al Turki, Lisa Wilson, William Rosenfeld, Sam Slater, and David Bernon also executive produce. Co-executive producers are Kean Cronin, Robert Kapp, and Samuel Reich.

Dreamland is a production of Green Room Films in association with Tuesday Films, Matisse Pictures, Construction Film and Burn Later Productions, and is a Canadian-Belgian co-production of Les Productions LOD and Bideford Productions.
