Amazon’s The Lord Of The Rings Series May Include Nudity
GeekTyrant are reporting that Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings-inspired series may be going the Game of Thrones route with the inclusion of nudity and sex. A casting call has recently gone out looking for various actors that are “comfortable with nudity.”
The casting call comes from the BGT talent agency and it was picked up by Lord of the Rings fansite TheOneRing.net. The casting call reads:
“Comfortable with Nudity? Up to $500 per day. Use reference NUDE. We need Nude people based in Auckland – age 18 plus, all shapes and sizes (Intimacy guidelines will always be followed on set).”
The series production also has an intimacy coordinator on its team, which suggests that the series could very well include sex scenes. That’s what intimacy coordinators are for on these projects.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth and the stories set there are incredible, these are stories that kids can enjoy. The world of Middle Earth is definitely more pure and chaste. They don’t really need to be Game of Thronesified, and it’s hard to believe that the Tolkien Estate would be ok with that.
The series will be set in the Second Age, which is about 3,000 years of history between the series and the beginning of The Lord of the Rings. Amazon has committed to five seasons of the series, and they will spend over a billion dollars bringing the story to life.
