Will Poulter Drops Out of Amazon’s “Lord of the Rings” Series

Will Poulter, who played Eustace in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, will no longer be appearing in Amazon’s upcoming The Lord of the Rings prequel series. Variety cites scheduling conflicts as the reason.

Poulter was first announced in September, but his role was never revealed.

The untitled series will take place in the Second Age of Middle-earth, long before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

    That’s too bad. It would have been nice to see him in the series. It also would have been ironic if he was in the series because then he would have been in two Inklings fantasy series.
    Also, I like to the choice of the cover photo for this news story.

    That’s the second Narnia actor in the past year who’s missed a role. Something must be going around…. we can always blame this one on Friday 13th! XD

    I suppose being overscheduled is a good thing? I’m glad he has a job.
