Author Steve Hillard and EMO Films are teaming to develop a dilm adaptation of his novel “Mirkwood” reports Heat Vision.
The book centers around a fictional version of “The Lord of the Rings” author J.R.R. Tolkien who is hiding secret documents that the forces of evil will do anything to obtain. A young orphan girl, Cadence, discovers them four decades later as dark forces from the realm of fantasy hunt down the documents and their guardian.
Hillard says the film “will delve considerably deeper into Tolkien’s little-known back story, such as his original plans to become a codebreaker in World War II up through the writing of his enduring work.”
Joel Eisenberg and Timothy Owens will executive produce.
