After The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, you wouldn’t think there would be much left to do with J. R. R. Tolkien. The fantasy author’s days on the silver screen aren’t over yet, however.
No, we’re not getting another trilogy from Peter Jackson. According to Den of Geek, actor Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, Warm Bodies) will play Tolkien in a biopic. Currently only known as Tolkien, the film also stars Lily Collins and Colm Meaney.
A release date has yet to be set, but the movie has already started filming in England. Hopefully that means we’ll get to see it by the end of 2018.
