Tolkien estate disavows forthcoming film starring Nicholas Hoult 23 Apr 6:15am Tolkien estate disavows forthcoming film starring Nicholas Hoult
Lord of the Rings author’s estate declares it did not ‘approve of, authorise or participate in the making of’ new biopic The family and estate of JRR Tolkien have fired a broadside against the forthcoming film starring Nicholas Hoult as a young version of the author, saying that they “do not endorse it or its content in any way”. Out in May, and starring Hoult in the title role and Lily Collins as his wife Edith, Tolkien explores “the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school”. Directed by Dome Karukoski, it promises to reveal how “their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up … until the outbreak of thde first world war which threatens to tear their fellowship apart”, all of which, according to studio Fox Searchlight, would inspire Tolkien to “write his famous Middle-earth novels”.

My life as JT LeRoy: Savannah Knoop on playing the great literary hoaxer 23 Apr 1:00am My life as JT LeRoy: Savannah Knoop on playing the great literary hoaxer
He was a rags-to-riches writer adored by everyone from Bono to Madonna. But JT LeRoy was actually Savannah Knoop in a wig. As the scam becomes a film, the performer tells all Savannah Knoop and I meet up at a hotel in London – on April Fools’ Day, a date so ludicrously apt I can’t resist commenting on its suitability. “Oh yeah,” they say, with a slightly strained grin. (Knoop identifies as gender neutral and requests they/them pronouns.) Knoop believes what they did was not so much a prank as a performance: “Although someone recently described it to me as a caper. I liked that,” they say, making the rigid wide grin so familiar from the millions of photos of them, back from when the public knew them not as Knoop, but as
