The script for Amazon's new Lord Of The Rings series is so heavily-guarded that its locked in a windowless room that requires fingerprint access to enter.

Amazon Chief Jennifer Salke was speaking with The Hollywood Reporter about the online giant's future plans for its content when she revealed the measures used to keep the show's storyline a secret on Wednesday.
周三,亚马逊总监Jennifer Salke在接受《好莱坞记者报》采访时候,谈到这家网络公司未来内容的发展计划,揭露了公司是用什么方法帮剧本保密的。

When asked if she could tell readers anything about the $1 billion TV adaptation of J.R.R Tolkien's novels, she said: 'There's a fantastic writers room working under lock and key. They're already generating really exciting material.

'And there's a security guard that sits outside, and you have to have a fingerprint to get in there.'

While little is known about Amazon's Lord Of The Rings TV show, rumours are swirling that the fantasy spin-off will centre around the life of Aragorn, played in the films by Viggo Mortensen.

Dedicated fans of the J.R.R Tolkien series believe that the series will mainly focus on the Ranger Of The North

In a series of highly-detailed tweets, the fan base highlighted that Tolkien's mammoth back-catalogue of different stories and appendices will give Amazon extensive material to work with.

After confirming from 'multiple sources' that Aragorn will take centre stage on the show, the fansite tweeted: 'From the first press release, we know this so-called #LOTR series will NOT be a retelling of the events of the War of the Ring.

'Instead it will be Appendices based and cover a lot of time and history. This is the greatest advantage the show runners have: that so much of Tolkien's storytelling, even just in 'Appendix A,' covers a tremendous swath of time.

Amazon has been given a multi-season order to the series, which was confirmed in November last year.
