The Tolkien-Lewis Friendship Hits The Big Screen
It’s a dream come true for a love of LOTR and Narnia fans—that is, if the movie turns out to be good.
That movie is an upcoming drama called Tolkien & Lewis. The film will cost around $18 million to make and will be a “drama fantasy set in war torn Britain in 1941 revealing the faith, friendship and rivalry between J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.”
The film will be directed by Simon West, who also directed The Expendables 2 and Con Air. Um, what? How many explosions will be in this film? Let’s just hope he doesn’t cast Nicolas Cage.
Casting hasn’t been announced, nor when the movie will start filming. But whenever it does come out, I hope the film gives both of these authors the credit they deserve.
Who should play C.S. Lewis? Tolkien?
