Will Poulter Cast in Lead Role for Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ Series

After a summer of speculation, the first lead has been cast for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series, and it’s none other than Will Poulter.

As originally reported by Variety, Will Poulter has been cast as one of the male leads for the series. Given the insane levels of secrecy surrounding the project, it’s no surprise that all details of Poulter’s character are being kept heavily under wraps.

2019 has been a good year for Will Poulter, who most recently appeared in Midsommar, as well as the interactive Black Mirror episode “Bandersnatch.” Other film credits include The Maze Runner series, The Revenant, and Detroit.

No doubt in the coming months we’ll learn more details about the character Poulter will be playing in the series. Stay tuned to Cinelinx.com as more details become available!
