Finnish director Dome Karukoski will helm the Fox Searchlight and Chernin Entertainment biopic.

Tolkien will focus on J.R.R. as he “finds friendship, love, and artistic inspiration among a group of classmates prior to the outbreak of World War I in 1914. He served in the British armed forces from 1916 to 1920, then wrote the two novels while working at Pembroke College.”
