JRR Tolkien Biopic In The Works

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
JRR Tolkien is coming to the big screen. The man himself, this time, rather than just his creations.

The LA Times have broken word that producer Peter Chernin is working with writer David Gleeson to develop a feature film telling the story of The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings creator JRR Tolkien's life, including time spent as a soldier in the first World War, time spent as a codebreaker in WWII, his friendship with fellow authors CS Lewis (The Chronicles Of Narnia) and Charles Williams (look him up, he's amazing) and the creation of his signature works.

The project is in early days yet, with no director or schedule currently in place.

    Love Charles Williams, but his writing can be somewhat....difficult to get into. Looking forward to reading his novels again this next year.

  • Williams definitely demands that readers get on to his wavelength but once you do it's really rewarding ...

  • Mr. Cavin

    I think it should be a trilogy.

    It might help if you actually spelled the man's name right.

  • Crap. I do that ALL the time.
