Nicholas Hoult in Talks to Play J.R.R Tolkien

July 25, 2017


Nicholas Hoult is in talks to star in TOLKIEN as J.R.R Tolkien. Dome Kaukoski is set to direct with Chernin Entertainment producing for Fox Searchlight. Tolkien’s novels like The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit have been adapted and directed by Peter Jackson at the big screen.

David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford wrote the script and explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences inspired Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.

The fimmakers got an interest in Hoult after his performance in Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Favorite. He also co-stars as Nikolas Tesla in The Current War, and he is set to reprise his role as The Beast in Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
