Could the next LEGO game be Lord of the Rings?

With Harry Potter on the way out and Star Wars done to death, could LEGO be looking to Lord of the Rings as the next big Traveller's Tales games franchise? With monster LEGO brick sets due out this summer, it would be right up the street of most geek gamers and they could have lots of fun with the characterisation of Tolkein's diminutive heroes and the nasty orcs.

Nothing official has been announced, but since news is ramping up on the blocks release, I wouldn't be too surprised if we heard something soon from a suitable publisher, perhaps to tie in with the Hobbit release.
