Peter Jackson to Film 95 Hour Adaptation of Silmarillion

New Zealand’s best known movie maker will film an $800 million adaptation of JR Tolkiens book The Silmarillion it was revealed today.

The announcement was made by Robert Shaye, co-CEO of New Line Cinema who will be funding and distributing the five films.

‘We are pleased to announce that we now own the adaptation rights to this book and that Peter Jackson has agreed to produce and direct it,’ Shaye said.

While the rights to Tolkien book The Hobbit were recently sold off for multi-million dollar sums Shaye told reporters that The Silmarillion was ‘surprisingly cheap.’

‘Nobody owned it,’ Shaye said. ‘The Tolkien estate gave it to us for virtually nothing. Isn’t that crazy?’

Details of the adaptation are scare. It is understood that it will consist of five films, each roughly twenty hours long – although it is understood that the initial cinematic releases might be edited down to less than a dozen hours.

The first film, Ainulindalë is scheduled for release in 2018 but already fans of Jackson and Tolkien are buzzing with anticipation.

‘This is going to be totally awesome,’ wrote independent film critic Harry Knowles on his popular web-review site AintitCool.com. ‘I can’t wait to see the scene where Eru is singing and the rest of the Ainur join in but Melkor wants to sing his own song. That is just gonna be balls-to-the-wall f**king amazing – especially if the rumours about Christopher Walken playing Melkor are true. Christopher Walken rocks!’

It is also understood that Jackson is planning to move away from digital representations of large battles – many of which occur in the third film, the Quenta Silmarillion.

‘What we did with Lord of the Rings was groundbreaking at the time but is now standard in the industry,’ said a spokesperson for Weta workshop. ‘What Peter hopes to do this time around is film real battles with real weapons and real carnage.’

The Screen Actors Guild has yet to comment on Jacksons plan to butcher his cast but legions of Tolkien fans are signing up to die for the film.

‘I’d like to be eaten by a Balrog in the Battle of Sudden Flame, but I’ll probably end up being stabbed by some Orc,’ said one fan. ‘But that’s okay too.’

Jackson will need to keep some Tolkien fanatics alive, since all dialog in the film will be delivered in the fictional languages Quenya and Eldarin. The movies will not feature subtitles.

‘If that’s Peter’s vision then that’s what we want to do,’ Bob Shaye told reporters at a post-announcement press conference. ‘As far as I’m concerned it’s now Peter’s eight hundred million dollars and I know he’ll make five great movies with it.’

Shaye also admitted that he personally had not found time to read The Silmarillion but he was not concerned about its commercial prospects.

‘Peter Jackson and Tolkien,’ he said. ‘How can you go wrong?’

  1. Don’t even joke about it.

    BTW – I’m expecting a 95 minute prologue to the Hobbit part 2, covering a lot of it.

  2. Re the real carnage: could he employ those medieval re-enactment blokes for it? A few less of those f*ckers and the world will be a better place…

    Apparently for nicholas methodically killing your cast isn’t the most noteworthy thing about that passage.

    Oh the humanity.

    I wonder what they would use for the sounds of disharmony, maybe Susan Boyle?

  11. Beautiful book, please try not to fuck it up please. I don’t think burning down the studio is an answer, they are seriously loaded and could buy studios faster than you could throw your petrol bombs.

  12. I REAAAAAAAAALLLYYYYYYYYYYY hope there comes a SILMARILLION movie!! And me and a million other fans will be pretty sure that if PETER JACKSON directs, it would be the BEST adaption ever made possible!! To be honest: The LOTR trilogy… I mean… it’s the ultimate BEST adaption!! He’s a PRO!!
    Me and millions of fans are waiting for The SILMARILLION! Ainulindalë for 2018!!

    Comment by Bert — January 5, 2011 @ 4:28 am

  13. I’ll watch it.

    Comment by Tim — March 8, 2011 @ 5:15 am

  14. Having read the LOTR Trilogy and loved them im not sure the films did the books justice, but i think Jackson did the best job possible. LOVED The Silmarillion Book even more so im hoping that the film really lives up to the book. Looking forward to seeing it!

    Comment by James Webster — May 1, 2011 @ 10:57 am

  15. I think that the best adaptation possible would involve less completely made up stuff and more of the actual book. I don’t mean Bombadil. I don’t mind cutting for time. I mean stuff like Sam being dismissed in favor of Gollum and Aragorn “dying” on the way to Helm’s Deep. Faramir deciding to take the ring before he decided not to and Treebeard deciding not to go to Isengard before he decided to go. Gimli wearing the mail that was too big for him instead of not wearing the mail because it was to big for him. (The characters of Legolas and Gimli were done a grave injustice in the films.) Or the horses running away at the Pass of the Dead. Or Frodo falling into the Dead Marshes instead of Sam. And he didn’t end up underwater even a little bit. He just looked into it and saw the bodies which Gollum then proceeded to explain were impossible to actually touch, even though you could see them. Not in the films, though. In the films you can reach the bodies and they paw at you like zombies. Because the Dead Marshes weren’t creepy enough. They had to act like a monster movie.

    Just plain stupid changes. No point in them except that Jackson liked it better that way. But adpating involves making the plot and themes play out in a different medium, which Jackson did really well at, sometimes. Too often, however, Jackson made up his own themes and his own plot elements which, again, too often required doing the EXACT OPPOSITE in the films of what happened in the book. Why wasn’t Tolkien’s story good enough for him?

    Plus, why did it all play out like one big chase scene? And what’s with all those “boo” moments? Is it just because schlock horror is all Jackson really knows how to do? I think so.

    Don’t get me wrong. I b*tch about it, but I still like the films. They are really good films. And some things parts adapted brilliantly. But others, not so much.

    I would say that they are the best adaptations so far….but still a far cry from the best adaptations possible.

    Comment by Dan Williams — May 10, 2011 @ 6:01 am

  16. I am stoked. I was hoped Peter Jackson was planning on turning the Simarillion into a movie adaptation. I had no doubt that if anyone could do a great job it would be Peter Jackson. The Simarillion is my favorite book and to see it on the big screen would be FANTASTIC! Too bad it will not come out until 2018.

    Comment by Galateo — June 25, 2011 @ 4:41 am

  17. I can’t BELIEVE THIS! My DREAM is coming TRUE! Hoorayyy for the Silmarillion and Peter Jackson! Nothing can’t be made real with Peter and Tolkien! We should make this known all over the WORLD, so EVERYONE MAY KNOW ABOUT THIS! Ainulindalë FOR 2018!

    Comment by RulerL0rd — July 2, 2011 @ 8:26 am

  18. I am really looking forward to the Silmarillion being filmed, but i just as much hope that they keep to the book. I understand that when you read a book and watch it on screen are two different things and you need to change some things to add a little more drama etc. but some things just shouldn’t be changed and I have to agree with Dan Williams. Good luck to us all))

    Comment by Vahagn Vardanyan — July 10, 2011 @ 12:09 pm

  19. I stumbled across this post, and the comments have left me confused. Are the laer comments cheering the arrival of the film adaptation of the Silmarillion serious? Or are they just mocking Mr. Nicholas Robert Gravel? I would have thought the sarcasm in the post was fairly drippingly obvious.

    Comment by nic — July 20, 2011 @ 6:00 pm

  20. @nic What sarcasm? There is no sarcasm anywhere. You are probably such an idiot, and you don’t even understand what you are reading.

  21. My dream………

    Comment by Melkor — July 29, 2011 @ 2:25 am

  22. After reading the comments, I have come to the conclusion that sometime between October 2010 and January 2011, the entire English-speaking people’s IQ dropped by an entire digit.

    Yes, Peter Jackson is planning to slaughter 90% of the cast of the film. The film will be in Quenya and Eldarin. No subtitles. The dude who plays Maglor will die a fiery death. Christopher Walken will mangle his face from the Silmaril’s flames.

    Get a grip, folks. This post’s listed under satire. I can’t believe the people who posted after January 2011 can even claim to like Silmarillion, if they can’t read something that might score 8th grade on Flesch-Kincaid.

  26. This is truly what i want from life right now. The best book ever to be made into a series of movies as magically beautiful as the Lord of the Rings movies. I don’t wanna marry anybody, don’t wanna have children, don’t wanna have sex anymore or any other crap like that. The only thing i want is this. My primary purpose in life is to see this. :)

    Comment by fmacskasy — October 8, 2011 @ 9:17 pm

  28. Last news : for the first movies, they are going to flaten the earth so that it will respect the real configuration of Arda before Illuvatar finaly rounded it.

    Isn’t it great ? And after, they will reround it up, cutting off the continent of Aman (land of gods), considering that it corresponds to the blessed land of USA : that will be even better, because we won’t have to support anymore those fucking GIs shitting bombs every where on our poor little brothers, and all those fatty dumb assholes eating shit from dawn to night and polluting our air and sea. Before that, all americans that are not too stupid will be invited to come back to the ancient world (aka middle earth), because as you are non superfattystupid people, will love you, despite your origins.

    Thank’s for those great news !

  30. I totally agree with Dan Williams, Peter Jackson did really mess up part of his job. Some of his interpretations were a real betrayal to the book’s spirit.

    Sometimes I even wonder if he’s actually read the books or only skipped through them…

    Comment by Simrane — December 2, 2011 @ 12:23 pm

  31. The most unbelievable part of this, is that Christopher Walken will still be alive in 2016-2018 to be in it…

    Comment by Lox Chatterbox — December 8, 2011 @ 9:25 pm

  32. I hope they handle this book respectfully. It is a masterpiece that could only come from the mind of Tolkien.

    And to musicisthebest….. I think I speak for most lean, fit, responsible, successful Americans when I say, “go fuck yourself.”

    Comment by mascnz — January 9, 2012 @ 12:38 pm

  37. Heard Sil was being made, thought it would be one three hour epic visuals with almost no dialogue and fast paced action of epic fighting, the Tinuviel-Beren story can be shown in five minutes instead of what looks like around 20 in this 5 part version which will take longer to watch than to read the actual book
    Im excited about the Hobbit but not this one

    Comment by Electricfoo (@electricfoo) — January 14, 2012 @ 8:57 pm

  38. Maybe James Cameron can work with Peter Jackson… I’m guessing the collaboration would be advantageous to making The Silmarillion visually represented as it was intended by Tolkien, NO EDITING!!!, that is, it could be made in the manner that the children of Iluvatar would appreciate and Eru and the Valar would smile upon… if it can be imagined and put on paper, why can’t it be put on screen? Man has recreated faces of acient kings and queens, solved cold cases and re-lived many other great things through forensic tech… it’s time we took tech to the next level and recreated Tolkien’s imagination and put it up on the screen… oh, that sounded more invasive than i thought it would, anyhow, he’s given us the Tolkien DNA in his writing… what are we waiting for? 2018… it’s kind of far off but… it’s Jakson’s money and his timeline… I”m just a fan… Regardless of how he makes it and when, I’m sure it’ll be a delight to see whatever he Peter comes up with…

    One more thing, no pun intended, but I urge those who have influence to make sure those chaps who made the Harry Potter series do not come near this adaptation…

  39. silmallirion is the most complex and dark book i have ever read,and now about the upcoming movies peter jackson is best director of world. His adaptation of lotr is phenomenal .
    the silmallirion will be the best movie ever made despite it will be 95 hour long. we have already seen rotk which is 4 hours long but still an epic movie without a second of boredom. I have dreamed about silmallirion movies .It will be a dream come true.I an waiting for the fighting scene of fingolfin vs morgoth

  43. All jokes aside, I really would like to see some sort of Silmarillion movie. Not this– this would never get made. But a movie about just Beren and Luthien, or just Feanor, or just Turin. He could do a brilliant job with a smaller, more focused plot.

  46. By the time Ainulindale shows in theaters, I will be 19 years old… And still dreaming kid’s stuff. Elves and all. WOOP! I can’t wait. I thought The Hobbit would be the last, so I prepared myself to say goodbye to the *EPIC* LOTR movies as soon as I watched the 2nd part of the movie out by 2013. And then comes Silmarillion! I haven’t read the book yet, but I’d really love to get my hands on it someday. OOOOH ICANTWAITICANTWAIT

    Comment by Anonymously — July 14, 2012 @ 4:15 pm

  47. I simply do not believe that New Line Cinema would hand Peter Jackson $800,000,000 to make a movie in Elvish, with no subtitles and no regard for commercial prospects.

  50. This is listed under SATIRE. Seriously, 95 hours long?? Come ON. That is just not humanly possible. And all the dialogues in Elvish? No Subtitles? WHAT. THE. EFF. I had HOPED there would be a Silmarillion movie, but apparently it’s not coming anytime soon.
    And butchering the entire cast? o_O
    This article’s a joke.

    Comment by A Disappointed Fan — August 26, 2012 @ 2:46 pm

  51. Though I would LOVE just at least three movies featuring three of the stories.. That would be great!

    Comment by A Disappointed Fan — August 26, 2012 @ 2:47 pm

  52. Ye gods … The post is under Satire! @Rishav, Peter wants You! To be slaughtered in the 37th hour of the Entire damn thing, roughly corresponding to the third move. Oh and you need to spend the next year learning Quenya and Eldarin so you can deliver the one line you have before you are disemboweled. Hope you’re an organ donor :)

    Having …. no words for some of the other gems, i agree with Dan Williams to a certain extent. We all want more authenticity and people who love the book will generally poke holes in the movie, tis the rule.
    However, still respect Peter Jacksons vision. A man who created the beauty that is the LOTR series can clearly visualize scenes and understand appeal. If a particular scene looks better without drastically changing the story, cheers, I’m all for it.

    Cheers to the author o the post. Hilarious. Though the comments overshadow :P

  53. Just to get back to Nicholas Robert Gravel for a moment, he may be kind of nuts, but I for one applaud anyone who uses “your” and “you’re” correctly. “I hope somebody burns your movie studio down” may seem like a crazy thing to say, but it is infinitely better than “I hope somebody burns you’re movie studio down”. Points off for typing it all in upper case letters though.

    Comment by Gull — August 30, 2012 @ 4:45 pm

  54. I literally jumped out of my skin reading this. Watching the extended trilogy editions over an over combined with the announce of the hobbit trilogy, has left my thirst for Arda and all it’s histories ever parched. I’m taken back and reaffirmed in my fascination with these timeless works, and my heart is in bliss knowing Tolkiens legacy and spirit is ever flourishing in the grace of Ilúvatar.

  57. I was ecstatic to find news about making this into a movie. I would like some news on the cast of characters. Peter Jackson knocked it out of the park with the LOTR movies and set the standards for its genre. 2018 seems such a lifetime away.

  59. The only way I’d ever see an adaptation of The Silmarillion would be if indeed Christopher Walken played Melkor/Morgoth… AND if it was a musical directed by a freshly exhumed zombie Ken Russell… AND if there was a scene where Mr. Walken does a song and dance in boxer shorts (reprising his famous number from “Pennies from Heaven”) at the summits of Thangorodrim. Now that would most definitely be (as the kids today say) epic!

  61. This post is off the satire scale. It’s hard to say which is funnier. The original post which is farcically obvious satire, the guileless Tolkien fans pushing the satire to the next level, or those who belatedly realise the gag but still take it seriously and comment on Silmarillion. Like it’s even vaguely, vaguely ever going to happen.

    Thank you to all for my biggest guffaw since John Stewart lampooned ‘math that Republicans do to make themselves feel better’.

    Don’t ruin it! It could net a Tolkien nut every month for the next hundred years. I’m still hoping a Star Wars nerd shows up to duke it out over whether the time would be better spent on their canon.

    IS this the end of the Silmaril project? Sad faces all round if so.

    Of course with James Cameron now in NZ there is still hope. The magic he did with Avatar would be nothing compared to what he could do with the Music of the Ainur. And imagine the breadth of vision he could bring to the destruction of Beleriand or Numenor. I’m quivering in anticipation.

  67. In related news, Martin Freeman and family have been moved by Steven Moffatt and Hartswood Films to an undisclosed location. “Tell Jackson he can f— off and die,” the British actor reportedly said. “I don’t care what I signed, I’m not wearing those f—— feet again.”

    Comment by Melanie Fletcher — January 4, 2013 @ 12:12 pm

  68. We thought we were going to die of laughter. We’re pretty much purists when it comes to Tolkien, and to see a Peter Jackson adaptation of the Silmarillion? That would be awful. Purely, simply, awful. It’s not that the LotR movie trilogy wasn’t good, but we seriously know people that think that the movies are the real thing, and the books are just based off the movies. We’re literally the only people we know that has read the Silmarillion, or any of the History of Middle-earth books. Still, all the comments…oh, Lorien, the glorious, stupid, hilarious comments! It’s like people actually believe this “article”! Killing the cast…no subtitles…95 hours…stupid people who believe this…all adds up to one of the funniest things we’ve ever seen on the interwebs.

    Comment by Feanor and Finrod — January 7, 2013 @ 5:26 pm

  69. If you’re a real fan you will happy that the book is being adapted into a movie. Only a true fan will support a another true fan like Peter Jackson.

    Comment by Larry — January 7, 2013 @ 7:58 pm

  70. I sure hope this happens, though I have my doubts. If it does, they’re gonna need a really good actor to portray Melkor: after all, it would be like portraying Satan. If this happens, Melkor better be a damn good actor!

    Comment by Tony Appel — January 21, 2013 @ 9:32 am

  73. Nice and sadly accurate. I’d only add one thing: “Jackson announced that he would donate part of the expected profits to his pet project of freeing convicted killer Wesley Cook, also known as ‘Mumia Abu Jamal’. ‘Because he’s like totally innocent, dude! He says he is, and I read it on the Internet, so I know it’s true! I also saw many movies, so I know that Americans are dumb racist rednecks, dude!’, Jackson explains.”

    (^- A pet peeve – a reference to the fact that Jackson donated much of the cash he made on “LotR” to help free 3 convicted and self-admitted rapists/killers last year – because they listened to heavy metal, they had groupies who proclaimed their innocence, and so he could relate to them.)

  77. I heard from a source recently that an upcoming anniversary box set of LOTR will include the option of subtitles in Elvish for the whole movie!!! OMG awesome !!! Let’s hope they get a real expert to do the translation not some guy off the internet.

    Hope the Star Trek guys are watching this and thinking ‘Klingon’…

  78. And here I was, having the last glimmer of hope for humanity. It is now dashed. I’m moving to Valinor, where I’m hoping the residents can actually read.

    I hear the Vanya have amazing parties, when they aren’t singing praises to Manwë and Varda. Time to learn the Ainur disco.
