A biopic on the early life of J.R.R Tolkien is in post production. The film is set to be released on May 10th. Not much is known at this point as the film seems to have no official website and very little social media presence. The director has several films to his credit, but all are Finnish. I’m a bit worried by the writer selection as they are virtually unknown.

The trailer is short, but it seems like the film will highlight Tolkien’s time as an orphan, his years at Oxford, his service in World War I, but will largely revolve around his romance with his wife Edith Bratt.

I’ll post more when I hear something. I remain hopefully optimistic.

Details
Director – Dome Karukoski (some Finnish stuff )
Writers – David Gleeson (smh), Stephen Beresford (Pride?)
Starring – Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments), Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road)
