J.R.R Tolkien Biopic in the Works Titled 'Tolkien'

Today the LA Times is reporting that Lord of the Rings writer J.R.R Tolkien will get a biopic. It will follow the life of the famed writer. Cowboys & Aliens writer David Gleeson is to pen the script. They are comparing this film to Finding Neverland or the upcoming bio pic Saving Mr. Banks which follows Walt Disney.

A previous attempt on a Tolkien biopic was made named Mirkwood but was rejected by the Tolkien estate. No word on what they have to say on this most recent attempt. Now I wonder will Peter Jackson serve as producer or have nothing to do with it? Another question is will they have C.S Lewis (Author of The Chronicles of Narnia) in the film given they are both Oxford buddies and collaborators on each others books.
