How has nobody posted about the fact that someone is planning to make Tolkien biopic?? Not much info yet but still:

Quote:
The script by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels. Karukoski helmed The Home of Dark Butterflies. He is repped by ICM Partners.

Sounds like an awful, awful idea to me but I suppose we'll see!

I posted about it last year, though it either was renamed or a different effort altogether.

Oh yeah, look at that! Though considering all the names are different it seems like a different project, I'd think.

Yeah, it does look like a different project. Which bets the question, is there really a market for two biopics about Tolkien?

I'd be surprised if there's a market for one, really.

So, that guy from Fury Road and Phil Collins' daughter may play JRRT and Edith. But besides the forbidden love story, reconverting CS Lewis and WW1, his life wasn't terribly cinematic... It's basically sitting in rooms talking, drinking and smoking if he's not writing. Or having fever dreams about elves in military hospitals.

Tolkien's real life may not have been all that cinematic, but who knows what his Hollywood life was like.

Colm Meaney Cast In Fox Searchlight’s ‘Tolkien’

He is playing Father Francis. It will be interesting to see how he is portrayed.
