     Tolkien Biopic Movie in the works...  

The LA Times is reporting the news of a Tolkien movie being developed by David Gleeson

Apparently the movie will cover the origins of his creating the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit books. No surprise there.

“Tolkien,” as the project is tentatively called, will examine the author’s life, particularly his formative years at Pembroke College and as a soldier in World War I, and how it influenced him and his work, according to a person familiar with the project who was not authorized to talk about it publicly.
David Gleeson, a Tolkien superfan and scholar of sorts about the Middle-earth creator, is currently working on the script. The movie will be produced by Peter Chernin ‘s Chernin Entertainment (“The Heat,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) and set up at Fox Searchlight.
