Amazon Studios has roped in JD Payne and Patrick McKay to pen their highly anticipated mega-budget "Lord of the Rings" TV series.

Their writing credits include the upcoming "Star Trek 4" for Paramount and adapting the upcoming "Jungle Cruise" for Disney.

"The rich world that J R R. Tolkien created is filled with majesty and heart, wisdom and complexity. We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Amazon to bring it to life anew.

"We feel like Frodo, setting out from the Shire, with a great responsibility in our care — it is the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime," the writing duo said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.

Set in Middle Earth, the television adaptation will explore new storylines preceding Tolkien's "The Fellowship of the Ring".
