That is an interesting point. My understanding is that Zaentz and company have no rights to material outside of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. However, some of the accounts of the First and Second Age are briefly mentioned in the appendices, including the tale of Beren and Luthien. I shudder to think of what jackson's adaptation of that would look like.


If the new movies are successful, I imagine New Line's lawyers will be doing everything they can to ensure they can film anything vaguely mentioned in the appendices.
