In news from Hollywood, another Lord of the Rings feature film is on the way - this time in the style of Japanese anime.

Warner Brothers says it will produce The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, directed by filmmaker Kenji Kamiyama.

The film will tell the story of a legendary battle that shaped Middle-Earth in the years leading up to events in J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
