亚马逊影业计划耗资10亿美元打造《指环王》电视剧,虽然还没有开拍,但是已经有很多网友都表示对这部电视剧相当期待。剧版《指环王》还会由原版电影导演来执导吗?主角是谁?什么时候开拍?一共拍几季?将有哪些情节?下文为你揭晓答案。

When Peter Jackson first started planning The Lord Of The Rings films back in 1995, he couldn’t have imagined how it would dominate his life. And now, six movies, 21 Oscars and 23 years later, we’re heading back to Middle Earth for a brand new Lord of the Rings TV series.

1995年,当彼得·杰克逊最初开始策划《指环王》系列电影的拍摄时,他想象不到这部电影将会主宰他的人生。23年过去了,在他拍摄了6部电影、摘得了21个奥斯卡奖杯后,如今观众又将和中土重逢,看到全新的《指环王》电视剧。

Amazon Studios are the lucky lot who’ve been tasked with recreating J.R.R. Tolkien’s literary magic for the small screen, with the company signing a reported $250m rights contract in November 2017 with the author’s estate, publisher HarperCollins and New Line Cinema to produce a multi-season show for television.

亚马逊影业有幸将能把J·R·R·托尔金的这部文学巨著改编成电视剧,该公司于2017年11月和托尔金家族基金会、哈珀柯林斯出版社和新线电影公司签下了2.5亿美元(合16亿元人民币)的版权合同,将制作一部长达数季的电视剧。

电视剧《指环王》即将开拍,来看看观众最关心的几个问题:

《指环王》电视剧什么时候开播?

While there’s been no official word yet on an expected release date, Amazon are required by the aforementioned $250m deal to begin production on the show within two years – so that means that the show will be on the way by November 2019 at least.

目前关于开播日期还没有官方消息,不过,按照这个2.5亿美元的合同,亚马逊要在两年内开始制作这部电视剧,这意味着电视剧会在2019年11月前开拍。

电视剧制片方是谁?

Amazon, Netflix and HBO had all been in talks for acquiring the rights, but in the end only one triumphed.

亚马逊、奈飞和HBO都曾为获得制片权而洽谈过,但最终只有一个公司胜出。

Amazon Studios will produce the series in co-operation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, book publishers HarperCollins, and New Line Cinema (a division of Warner Bros., which made the original Oscar-winning movies with Peter Jackson). The studios will allocate a reported $1bn budget for the show – the biggest in television history.

亚马逊影业将和托尔金家族基金会、哈珀柯林斯出版社、新线电影公司(华纳兄弟公司的子公司,曾和彼得·杰克逊合作拍摄过获得奥斯卡奖的原版《指环王》电影)合作拍摄这部电视剧。据称,亚马逊影业将拿出10亿美元(约合64亿元人民币)的预算来拍摄《指环王》电视剧——这是电视剧有史以来金额最高的预算。

It’s interesting that Tolkien’s estate will be so closely involved with production. In recent years, they were partly responsible for delaying Jackson’s initial idea for a set of Hobbit films directed by Guillermo Del Toro. They eventually settled the matter and the critically-reviled trilogy went ahead – but without Del Toro, who departed the project in 2010.

有意思的是,托尔金家族基金会将如此密切地参与电影拍摄。几年前,彼得·杰克逊最初提出由吉尔莫·德尔·托罗来导演《霍比特人》系列电影,但这一计划被拖延,部分阻力就来自托尔金家族基金会。最终他们解决了这一问题,备受批评的《霍比特人》三部曲开拍了,但是导演不是吉尔莫·德尔·托罗,他于2010年退出了这个项目。

But, just as An Unexpected Journey hit cinemas in 2012, the Tolkien estate sued Warner Bros., citing copyright infringement and breach of contract over video games and other digital merchandising. The $80m law suit was settled in July, but the problems left a bad taste in the mouths of everyone involved. Why would they go back into business with New Line so quickly?

然而,就在《霍比特人:意外之旅》2012年上映时,托尔金家族基金会起诉华纳兄弟公司在电子游戏和其他电子商品方面侵犯版权和违反合同。这桩8000万美元(约合5.1亿元人民币)的诉讼于当年7月份结案,但是给涉案的每个人都留下了很恶心的感觉。为什么托尔金家族基金会这么快又要和新线电影公司再度合作呢?

彼得·杰克逊会参与电视剧拍摄吗?

Peter Jackson has confirmed that he is not involved in the series. Speaking to French publication Allocine, he killed the rumors that he would be involved saying: “I’m not involved at all in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ series...I understand how my name could come up, but there is nothing happening with me on this project.”

彼得·杰克逊已证实,他将不参与电视剧的拍摄。他在接受法国网站Allocine采访时否认了自己将参与拍摄的传闻:“我完全不会参与《指环王》电视剧的拍摄……我理解我的名字为什么会在报道中出现,但我和这个项目没有关系。”

《指环王》电视剧会拍多少季?

Amazon has committed to producing five seasons of a Lord of the Rings TV series as part of its $250 million rights deal.

根据2.5亿美元的这份合同,亚马逊计划拍摄五季《指环王》电视剧。

演员阵容都有谁?

We’re not at that stage yet. But Ian McKellen, who played Gandalf in the original trilogy, has expressed interest in reprising his role. Asked by Graham Norton on his BBC radio show if it was going to be annoying to have another pointy-hatted wizard around, McKellen replied: “What do you mean, another Gandalf?”

目前还未进行到选角的阶段。不过在原版《指环王》电影三部曲中扮演甘道夫的伊恩·麦克莱恩有兴趣重新演绎他的老角色。在BBC节目格拉汉姆诺顿秀上,他被诺顿问及如果冒出了另一个尖帽子巫师会不会感到恼火,麦克莱恩回答说:“你的意思是,另一个甘道夫吗?”

He added: “I haven’t said yes because I haven’t been asked. But are you suggesting that someone else is going to play it? Gandalf is over 7000 years old, so I’m not too old.”

他说:“我还没有收到片方邀请,所以我还没有同意。但你指的是其他人要扮演甘道夫吗?甘道夫7000多岁了,所以我还不算太老。”

Meanwhile, actor John Rhys Davies, who played feisty dwarf Gimli, has criticised Amazon for making a series so soon after Jackson’s original.

与此同时,扮演矮人吉姆利的演员约翰·里斯·戴维斯批评亚马逊影业,称杰克逊的原版电影拍完没多久就要拍摄电视剧。

“It’s not about doing it better, it’s about making more money, that’s all,” Rhys-Davies told Den of Geek. “If they think they can make more money, then they will.”

里斯·戴维斯告诉Den of Geek网站说:“这无关乎是否拍出更好的作品,而是为了赚更多钱,仅此而已。如果他们认为可以赚更多钱,那么就赚吧。”

Andy Serkis, who played Gollum in the movies, has said he doesn’t expect to be cast in the upcoming TV version. He told ScreenCrush: “It sounds incredible, but I don’t see myself being any part of it.”

在电影中扮演咕噜姆的安迪·瑟金斯说,他应该不会在电视剧中扮演角色。他告诉ScreenCrush网站说:“听上去挺棒的,不过我应该不会在剧中扮演任何角色。”

“I think it’s a completely fresh, new approach to it all, so I don’t think I’d imagine myself to be anywhere near it really,” he added.

他说:“我认为这是全新的一次改编,我觉得自己应该和这个新项目完全不沾边。”

However, Serkis’ co-star Sean Astin was more positive about the prospect of reprising his role as Samwise Gamgee.

不过,和瑟金斯一同拍摄电影的肖恩·奥斯汀对自己重新扮演山姆怀斯·甘姆齐(山姆)更有信心。

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said: “I’ve been saying for 15 years...maybe like 12 years after Lord of the Rings came out, that it would get remade. And people always said, ‘Oh no, it’ll never get remade! It’s a classic! They could never top it!’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’ll get remade. It’s a massive story! The characters are so beloved.”

在接受《娱乐周刊》采访时,奥斯汀说道:“自从《指环王》电影拍出来后,15年了……也许是12年了,我总是说《指环王》还会翻拍的。而人们总是说:‘不,永远不可能翻拍的!这是经典!永远无法超越!’而我说:‘不,它会被翻拍。这是个伟大的故事!里面的角色太受人喜爱了。’”

电视剧会有哪些情节?

The script hasn’t even been assigned yet, but there’s several avenues the writers could go down. We know the series will be a prequel to The Lord Of The Rings films, so that means anything prior to Bilbo handing over the ring to Frodo is fair game. That leaves them with a mere few thousand years of folklore to work with...

剧本还没有分派给编剧,不过可能会从几条思路着手。我们知道电视剧将是电影的前传,这意味着任何发生在比尔博将魔戒交给佛罗多之前的故事都是可能的。也就几千年罢了……

TheOneRing is reporting that the opening season of the show is going to be focused on a young Aragorn. The character was already 87-years-old by the time The Fellowship Of The Ring began, so there’s a huge chunk of his childhood that could be utilised.

据TheOneRing网站报道,《指环王》电视剧的第一季将主要讲述年轻的阿拉贡的故事。在电影《指环王》第一部开始时,阿拉贡已经87岁了,所以关于他的少年时期还有很多故事可以讲。

[BREAKING] We have confirmed from multiple sources that @AmazonStudios new billion-dollar #LOTR series will open its first season centered on a young Aragorn.

重磅消息!我们已经从多个来源证实,@亚马逊影业耗资10亿的《指环王》电视剧的第一季将主要讲述年轻的阿拉贡的故事。

— TheOneRing.net (@theoneringnet) May 16, 2018

Astin theorised about what might be included in the future series’ plot: “The Mines of Moria are referred to a lot in Lord of the Rings. And I guess in The Hobbit trilogy, you spent a little bit of time with them, but the culture of the dwarves in the mines... I would love to see like five hours of that.”

肖恩·奥斯汀关于这部电视剧情节走向的理论是:“《指环王》原著中经常提到摩瑞亚矿坑。在《霍比特人》三部曲中没有多少关于摩瑞亚矿坑的情节,但是矮人的矿坑文化……这方面的内容我愿意看上五个小时。”
