Yeah I'm So! Glad! their adding all the history that Tolkien wrote! it would be a shame never to see it on screen if they didn't add it I Cant wait it's so Close!! Yeah it is Way before LOTR! it's The History from the very beginning Unfortunately I Don't think they have the rights to Make The Simillarion into a Film, and I Think it would be a Very difficult book to adapt into a film, since it's mostly all historical , But you never know!!
