He can't. [In reply to] Can't Post

Unfortunately, the rights to the Silmarillion are not available. Tolkien himself sold the rights to make movies of LOTR and The Hobbit during his lifetime, but the Silmarillion was published by Christopher Tolkien after his death and so belongs to the Tolkien Estate. They have made it clear that they have no interest in having movies made of it, so it would not be possible unless they changed their minds (which is very unlikely) or it enters the public domain, which would not be for many years yet.
