Amazon Prime Video announced that production closed on a Lord of the Rings series in New Zealand due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming started a month before this decision, according to Indie Wire.

The show was expected to air in 2021. It is a prequel series, which will take place in Second Age of Middle-earth.

Bloom played Legolas in multiple movies, but he probably won’t return to the role for the show adaptation. Bloom gave his reaction to the news of the Amazon Lord of the Rings series.

“It’s so funny because I remember being on set with Peter [Jackson] is it 20 years ago now?” he said according to Indie Wire. “He said, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to think about people doing a remake of Lord of the Rings? ‘This was amidst doing this remarkable shot. I said that’s never going to happen.”

The actor then shot down hopes of him returning. “I feel like I’ve done everything [I can.] I like to think of myself as ageless but I don’t know where I’d fit,” he said. Bloom went on to say “probably a 19-year-old kid” should get the role.

He was paid $175,000 for the role

The movie star revealed he had a surprisingly low pay check to play Legolas. It’s a good thing he had a starring role in another movie franchise.

He told Howard Stern how much he was paid for the trilogy. “Nothing, I got nothing. $175 grand . . . Listen, greatest gift of my life. Are you kidding me? I’d do it again for half the money,” he said. “I think there was a little bump when the movies came out . . . It was like a little bump, but it was nice.”

There is one way the role did pay off for Bloom. He claimed the success of Lord of the Rings led to a bigger check for him to play Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

“I was in a good spot,” he said. “They negotiated pretty well for me to buy a couple of houses, it was that kind of money.”

It seems like the role paid off for Bloom in the end. Sadly, there is a slim chance he will play Legolas again.

Angelina Jolie’s Net Worth Feels Like A Salt Sprinkled On Our Injuries! Check Out The WHOPPING Sum

Angelina Jolie isn’t just one of the most successful actresses in the world but also one of the richest. The Maleficent actress has done some amazing movies in her career which has really helped her mint money. Few of her successes include films like Salt, Changeling, Ocean’s Eleven and Cool World.

Angelina Jolie married actor Brad Pitt after being in a relationship for several years. The two got married in 2014 and have six kids together. The Fight Club actress shocked the entire world when she filed for divorce with the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor. This really broke the hearts of their fans who fondly called them ‘Brangelina’.

Before Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has been married twice. She first married his co-star and actor Jonny Lee Miller and the two met on the sets of Hackers in 1995. She then got married to Billy Bob Thorton in 2000 and got divorced within three years of their marriage. Later, she met Brad on the sets of Mr. & Mrs. Smith and the Fury actor allegedly cheated on Jennifer Aniston with Jolie.

Keeping aside her personal life, Angelina Jolie has a crazy bank balance. With all the ups and downs, she has managed to become an independent woman and has made an empire all on her own. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Wanted actresses net worth is around $160 million. Skipped a beat, right?

Spider-Man 3: Tom Holland To Share Screen Space With Tobey Maguire? Read DEETS

After two successful Spider-Man films, Tom Holland is all set to star in the third one. The first two films were titled – Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). The title of the third film is not revealed yet but the producers have said that it will have the word ‘home’ in it.

In Spider-Man: Far From Home, we saw Tom Holland’s Peter Parker dealing with the loss of Tony Stark and betrayal from Mysterio. His love story with MJ had just begun at the end of the film. But Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio revealed Peter’s identity as Spidey with shocking accusations and that has put him under the radar. Now, fans can’t wait to know what to expect in Spider-Man 3.

But it seems like Tom Holland has already given his ideas to Marvel. As reported by WeGotThisCovered, the actor wants former Spider-Man, Tobey Maguire, to play the role of Uncle Ben in Spider-Man 3. The report mentioned that Tobey will appear as MCU’s Uncle Ben in flashbacks. But will the actor be up for it? No one knows it yet.

This news isn’t surprising as, in several interviews, Tom Holland has expressed his liking for Tobey Maguire’s portrayal of Spider-Man. So, it will be interesting to see both the talented actors in the same frame. Meanwhile, along with Spider-Man 3, MCU also has films like Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, and The Legend of The Ten Rings, Black Panther 2, Thor: Love and Thunder and a few lined up.

There are also Disney+Marvel shows to look forward to. From The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to Loki To WandaVision, MCU has great projects in the pipeline to entertain their fans.
