I'm going to start working on a Tolkien script
Sorry if the title didn't make sense Blush

Well, I'm no screenwriter, but, with the help of my brother who has studied film direction, I'm going to start writing a script for a possible (or better, impossible) movie on the story of Beren and Luthien.

That means I will have to finish reading the Silmarillion so as to build the right framework and then I'm going to read the whole Lay of Leithian (if you know what that is, you know I'm crazy).

I know the chances of this script ever being actually used is well beyond the realm of possibility, but I feel this strong urge to make it nonetheless.

Just wanted to say that I'm really excited about it!
Ya, I know it's kinda stupid Big Grin

Good luck with your endeavour, sounds like a mammoth task.

At least TTAF will have a writer!

I've never read any of Tolkien's work, but I know it is rather expansive. Do keep us updated on your progress.

Good luck. I'm a J.R.R. Tolkien fan myself. The Silmarillion is brilliant, its like a cozy mytholgy and fantasy mixed into a world. The only thing i didn't like was "Turin Turambar" story, but otherwise its very nice.
