NICHOLAS HOULT Romances LILY COLLINS In First Look At J.R.R. Tolkien Biopic
We just got our first look at the upcoming biopic of Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien, thanks to Nicholas Hoult. The 29-year-old actor recently took to Instagram to give us a series of stills from the movie Tolkien, two of which feature Lily Collins who plays his wife Edith Bratt.
Award-winning Finnish director Dome Karukoski helmed the upcoming drama that promises to explore "the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school." It will also tackle how the late author found inspiration with his wife and the events of World War I to come up with his Middle-Earth novels.
Tolkien is set to arrive on theaters on May 2019.
