According to VarietyNew Line Cinema has decided to fast-track production on the new anime feature, “The War of the Rohirrim”, that will tell us the story behind the ‘bloody saga’ at Helm’s deep (the fortress in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers).

With the new Amazon series on Lord of the Rings already under production, it looks like New Line Cinema is trying to up the timeline to align more closely with that series.
