Tolkien biopic in the works

Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy was a huge success, bagging countless awards and billions of dollars. With the release of Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" last year and the upcoming launch of "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," the sky is the limit.

But if not for J. R. R. Tolkien's brilliance and imagination, the world would never enjoy stories about Middle Earth. Now the Los Angeles Times is reporting that a Tolkien biopic is in the works.

Writer and Tolkien scholar, David Gleeson, has been reportedly tapped to write the script of the film titled "Tolkien." The Times added that Chernin Entertainment and Fox Searchlight will produce the said movie.
