Deadline and others have reported:
Amazon Studios’ high-profile The Lord of the Rings TV series has made a key hire. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director Juan Antonio (J.A.) Bayona has been tapped to direct the first two episodes of the big-scope fantasy drama, following in the footsteps of Peter Jackson, who directed the feature adaptations of the classic J.R.R. Tolkien novels.

It's exciting news - I'm interested to see what Bayona brings to the team. Also good to know that Gennifer Hutchison of Breaking Bad is involved with the screenwriting as well.
