[Closed] Tolkien (film) - Will a role for Lewis be cast in it?

Member Moderator Emeritus

I’m curious if anyone knows whether CS Lewis or the inklings in general will be part of the upcoming Tolkien biographical film coming out in May?

Wow good question! I certainly hope so. It's hard to imagine a good Tolkien film without Lewis.

Tolkien looks like it's mainly going to focus on his time in WW1 and romance with his wife Edith.

While the film could possibly have Lewis in a small role, as far as I can tell no one's been cast as Lewis. And I'd honestly be a little surprised if they had him in there.

I liked the Tolkien film, but was disappointed that Lewis did not make it into it. Who knows, maybe a sequel?
