On a completed unrelated note, there's a JRRT biopic in the works. On the one hand, it looks like the script is being done by a Tolkien fan rather than some studio, which could be quite interesting. And more JRRT is always exciting. On the other, looking at the "origins" of Middle-earth is dangerous territory and will be difficult to do well, owing to Tolkien's famous comments denying his writings were allegorical. Tolkien fans can be pretty fiercely protective of our right to interpret the Middle-earth books on our own terms, some (like me) treating it as a history of actual events that can reflect bias and misinterpretation.
Anywho, it looks like an interesting project. I'd be interested to know what others think of it.
