A J.R.R. Tolkien Biopic is Happening!

J R R Tolkien

Praise Elbereth! A J.R.R. Tolkien biopic is currently in development and that makes us unbelievably happy.

Just kindly don’t Took it up guys.

The movie is being made by FOX Searchlight (which scares us a tiny bit) and will follow key events in Tolkien’s life that led him to pen The Hobbit and later the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

For example: fighting in WWI, code-breaking in WWII, being besties with C.S. Lewis and his fellow Iklings who would meet at the Eagle and the Child in Oxford to have conversations we wished we could have eavesdropped on.

Here’s hoping for a random cameo from Tom Bombadil. Don’t question it FOX, just make it happen.
