Movie About the Friendship of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Confirmed

We've known for a while now that Fox Searchlight had plans to make a biopic based on the author of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books, J.R.R. Tolkien simply called Tolkien. Now, news has come out that a movie called Tolkien & Lewis will be released, directed by The Expendables 2 director Simon West, focusing on the friendship between Tolkien and the author of The Chronicles of Narnia books C.S. Lewis. The film will focus during the World War II era when both authors were hard at work on their most famous pieces of work and the relationship they had in helping to complete the other's novels.

What do you think? Are you excited to see a movie based around J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis? Which Tolkien biopic are you most interested in? Is Simon West a good fit as a director? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
