LEGO developer Traveller's Tales has refused to deny that a LEGO Lord of the Rings or a LEGO The Hobbit game is in development, but has admitted a LEGO game based on the New Line Cinema films and Tolkien books "could work".

A LEGO Lord of the Rings and a LEGO The Hobbit game have been heavily rumoured to be in the works.

In March 2009, respected blog Variety reported that following parent company Warner Bros.'s re-acquisition of the rights to produce video games based on the Lord of the Rings, WB would "start producing Lord of the Rings games itself soon".

It has been suggested New Line Cinema's The Hobbit movie will be released in Christmas 2012. New Line Cinema is a subsidiary of Warner Bros.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 producer Loz Doyle refused to comment on the rumour, saying only "I can't say anything about it". But he was willing to discuss the suitability of the Lord of the Rings franchise to the much-loved Traveller's Tales LEGO treatment.

"It's [Lord of the Rings] got three films - well, plus one if you add The Hobbit. It's got a lot of cool characters. It could definitely work. There are very few things that wouldn't work, don't you think? There is an age limit, and Lord of the Rings is aimed younger in terms of appropriateness. So in that respect they work. Yeah, it would definitely work."

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is due out in May. Last week, LucasArts and TT Games announced the development of LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, due out this autumn.

A LEGO LOTR will most probably be the best LEGO game ever.

I would love to see a sand box lego game with something like Lost the tv series where you can wonder round the island and you have to use certain characters to get in certain areas ie. Locke to get in the hatch
