Potential Middle Earth movies in the future?

Shadow of Mordor adaption, Prequel young Strider or War Of The North?
The Silmarillion will probably never be adapted, but what about these I mentioned?
Could for example War Of The North include Dol Amroth or the northern Rangers?

I believe that the movie juju of the Lord of the Rings franchise has been exhausted for this generation. I think the next time we will see a Lord of the Rings film it will be many years from now and be a new version of The Fellowship of the Ring.

I can only hope that whoever makes the next version will stay more faithful than Jackson.

I think the appendices are adaptable though making it interesting to the public would be the challenge.

What if they brought Hugo Weaving Elrond, Cate Blanchett Galadriel, Orlando Bloom Legolas, Evangeline Lilly Tauriel as major elv roles for the War of the North movie?
And get some good actors for the roles in Erebor and perhaps include Glorfindel, Elrond's sons and the dunedain rangers? Perhaps the Swan Knights can have some role in this also. I want Gondor to have the same heroic role like Rohan had in LOTR.

I'd think some of the actors and actresses are too old.

I wouldn't mind seeing a movie about Thorongil destroying the Umbari fleet, or a miniseries about the kin strife and the wain riders.

There is a lot of lore in Tolkien's legendarium that I think could be adapted.

Makeup and CGI can always fix that. Especially makeup.
I think a prequel of young Strider and War of The North are the best candidates for adaptations.

Yeah and movies about the appendices material wouldn't require the extremely expensive budgets of say the Silmarillion.

Andsigil is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
David Lynch did "Dune" back in 1984. It's taken 33 years for another shot at it in cinema, this time with Denis Villeneuve ("Sicario", "Blade Runner 2049", "The Arrival") as the director, and it's going to be a trilogy.

Kuruharan was right when he said it will take a generation before we see more Tolkien films.

I think this is likely as well. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings were already famous texts before the films. Putting aside the fact that they would have to almost completely invent the plot from whole cloth (and the Dol Guldur material in the most recent films shows how that can go) I can't imagine how they would market a spinoff.

Question

Given that Hollywood currently has a paucity of ideas and the LOTR trilogy is looked upon very favorably(go to any YouTube comment section with LOTR clips) I suspect we might be seeing a new LOTR movie adaptation sooner than later.

Perhaps not until at least 20-25 years after Jackson's films were released(2020s-2030s) but I believe it will happen.
