J.R.R Tolkien has never been portrayed on the big screen, nor has the interplay between these two literary giants been told in the grand and compelling manner that the story demands.
The Lion Awakes will witness the carnage that both men endured in the trenches of WWI. And you will see how C.S (Jack) Lewis found redemption during WW2 by addressing Britain in her darkest hour, becoming the second most recognized voice on the radio after Winston Churchill.
You will discover how these incredible writers encouraged each other to explore and develop their fantasy worlds of Narnia and Middle-Earth, leading each man to become the author of a billion dollar franchise!
Three Agree Films plan to release the film in 2013, in honour of the 50th anniversary of C.S Lewis’s death. The film will also be very timely with the renewed interest in J.R.R. Tolkien thanks to the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in December, 2012, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again in December, 2013.
The Lion Awakes will be a high-quality film that will aim to continue a rich tradition of British films that reach a global audience.
The Lion Awakes will also greatly intrigue fans of two of the world's most enduring literary creations, which also happen to be two of Hollywood's highest-earning franchises.
The movie will play to a worldwide family, fantasy and Christian audience.
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe adapts for a theatre version in London mid 2012.
J.R.R Tolkien has never portrayed on the big screen offering an “A” list actor to break new ground.
We are legally represented by Paul Renney (The Kings Speech) in London and are currently in negotiations to craft this incredible screenplay into the most important film of the decade. We are also looking for brilliant actors to portray the main characters. Once the cast and director have been chosen, their names and the film will appear on IMDB.
In 1941 London was attacked for 76 consecutive nights and bombs fell like black rain from the evening sky. In Britain’s darkest hour the BBC turned to the most unlikely of men, to address his nation about hope - when all hope seemed lost. C. S. Lewis was a boy of imagination, thrust into the killing fields of WWI. As the boy grew to become a man of doubt, the war built a wall against all belief. A man named J.R.R Tolkien challenged his doubts and fired his imagination. Brick by brick, the wall began to crumble and the lost joy of childhood returned. Before they created their worlds of Narnia and Middle-earth, Lewis and Tolkien had to make their journey to faith, to fantasy and to a world in desperate need of their voices. And before creating his mythical Lion C. S. Lewis discovered his dreams were less important than his calling. And his calling would change the world...
In a time of war and chaos, doubt gives way to faith, fear gives way to courage, and friendship changes Everything!
