Amazon is quietly continuing work on its upcoming Lord of The Rings series, and fans couldn't be more excited to return to Middle Earth. However, in the midst of all this hype, it would seem one of the show's writers already has her eyes set on a potential future project.
Gennifer Hutchison, whose writing credits also include the excellent Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, has expressed her interest in creating a TV adaptation of the Bethesda classic Dishonored. The Arkane Studios-developed stealth-action series is one rich with lore and truly fascinating characters. It also doesn't hurt that the world of Dishonored has a properly unique aesthetic that would translate to live-action beautifully.
Taking to Twitter, Hutchison shared her desire to write a Dishonored show. Obviously, this doesn't mean anything will ever come from it... but the overwhelmingly positive reaction to her tweet shows that there's certainly plenty of like-minded fans out there who would love a Netflix-style series based on those games. I count myself among them.
Let me write a Dishonored TV series, you cowards.

A number of fellow writers actually seemed pretty keen to join Hutchison in making such a show a reality, including Mitch Dyer (Star Wars Battlefront II), and Matthew D'Ambrosio, who also pitched a Stardew Valley family drama that I cannot stop thinking out. Again, this is just the wishful thinking of a writer, and not confirmation of any kind that a Dishonored show is on the way. Still, it never hurts to dream.
In other, similar news, God of War Director Cory Barlog recently said that he'd love to see his game adapted into a Netflix-style series. Doesn't mean we're ever going to actually see one made, but isn't it jolly good fun to think about how great such a show could be?
Meanwhile, back in the world of shows that are actually going to happen, Amazon recently announced the cast for its Lord of The Rings series. There are a massively talented names in there, including Robert Aramayo (young Ned on Game of Thrones), Owain Arthur (The Palace), Nazanin Boniadi (Homeland), Tom Budge (The Pacific), and Joseph Mawle (Benjen Stark Game of Thrones).
Filming on The Lord Of The Rings starts next month, and Amazon hopes to have it ready by the end of the year. Hopefully, once it's all done and dusted, Hutchison can set about making her Dishonored show a reality.
