The biopic on JRR Tolkien with Nicholas Hoult will be released this year

The film that explores the young years of the creator of Middle-earth will be released on May 10th.

What is more natural than telling the story of the storyteller. The story of JRR Tolkien will be well adapted to the cinema and we know more about its casting and its content. As expected, the script will be the work of David Gleeson, director of The Front Line (2006), assisted in his work by the author of Pride (2014), Stephen Beresford.

Finnish filmmaker Dome Karukoski ( Tom of Finland ) will be behind the camera to portray the experiences of a juvenile Tolkien. The master of the heroic fantasy will be brought to the screen by Nicholas Hoult. The British actor, famous for his roles of the Fawn in the X-Men saga and Nux in Mad Max Fury Road , will play alongside Lily Collins ( Okja ) and Colm Meaney ( Star Trek: New Generation).

WHAT COULD THE FUTURE AMAZON SERIES, THE LORD OF THE RINGS TALK ABOUT?

In work since 2013, Tolkien should focus on the youth of Bilbo the Hobbit’s father and Lord of the Rings. From his birth in South Africa to his childhood in the greenlands of Worcestershire, this biopic will also recount his call to the flag during the First World War.

A nightmare of short duration for the young man of 24 years, repatriated following a rifle fever. The traumatic legacy of his presence on the front line, however, will be the triggers of his flourishing creative business. Tolkien should return to the genesis of this fantastic universe, as of May 10, 2019.
