Nicholas Hoult is in talks to star in Tolkien, a biopic about novelist J.R.R. Tolkien's life. The film will follow the author's formative years among a fellow group of outcasts at school, leading up to the outbreak of The First World War. The role will be challenging for Hoult as Tolkien was born looking 100 years old.


Tolkien is written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, and directed by Finnish director Dome Karukoski. There's no word yet if the film will end with Tolkien's estate suing Warner Bros. for $80 million.

Hoult's upcoming films include The Current WarThe Favourite, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
