Amazon Studios reveals that Swedish-French Director Charlotte Brändström joined the team of the forthcoming Amazon Original The Lord of the Rings television series
Continuing the work of Spanish filmmaker J.A. Bayona and British Chinese Director Wayne Che Yip, Brändström joins the international ensemble cast, currently filming in New Zealand, to direct two episodes.
Charlotte Brändström shares, “I’m very excited to be guided through Middle-earth by J.D.’s and Patrick’s vision and immerse myself in the iconic world of J.R.R. Tolkien. It’s a great privilege to be in New Zealand to work with Amazon Studios’ outstanding ensemble of creative talents,” said Brändström.
Charlotte Brändström has directed over 30 feature films, mini-series, and movies-of-the-week including episodes of The Man in the High Castle, Outlander, The Witcher, and the upcoming series Jupiter’s Legacy.
She adds, “There are countless things still to see in Middle-earth, and great works to do,” she added, quoting Gimli.
