JRR Tolkien biopic to be developed by Fox Searchlight

London, November 23 : 'Lord of the Rings' author JRR Tolkien's biopic is reportedly in the pipeline as Fox Searchlight is set to develop the project.



The film, which will be written by David Gleeson, will chronicle how the key moments in the novelist's life led him to write 'The Hobbit', and his acclaimed Rings trilogy, the BBC reported.

The film will also focus on Tolkien's time at Oxford University, as a soldier during WW1 and his friendship with fellow author CS Lewis, with whom he studied at university and formed the writing group known as The Inklings.

The film is going to be produced by Chernin Entertainment, who were behind hit films such as 'The Heat' and 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'.
