Now Stone has returned to Lewis with a new drama called The Most Reluctant Convert. Set before the 1950 publication of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first of The Chronicles of Narnia series, the film focuses on the turmoil of Lewis’s emotional and intellectual journey from atheism to Christianity.

Tom Glenister, https://www.imdb.com/name/nm7030314/?ref_=tt_cl_t4, plays J.R.R. Tolkien in the film.

Comes out on November 3rd in the USA.

An elder C.S. Lewis looks back on his remarkable journey from hard-boiled atheist to the most renowned Christian writer of the past century.

The film features award-winning actor Max McLean as the older Lewis and Nicholas Ralph – breakout star of PBS Masterpiece’s All Creatures Great and Small – as young Lewis. Beautifully filmed in and around Oxford, this engaging biopic follows the creator of The Chronicles of Narnia from the tragic death of his mother when he was just nine years old, through his strained relationship with his father, to the nightmare of the trenches of World War I to Oxford University, where friends like J.R.R. Tolkien challenge his unbelief.

Written for the screen and directed by two-time Emmy and BAFTA winner Norman Stone (BBC’s Shadowlands), The Most Reluctant Convert brings to life the spiritual evolution of one the 20th century’s sharpest minds and keenest wits.

The film is produced by Fellowship for Performing Arts in association with 1A Productions and distributed by Trafalgar Releasing.

A Hollywood-esque trailer like this doesn't necessarily mean the film will be awful, but it's not a good sign

Looks like the stage play is available on the internet to stream for free, not sure what geo-restrictions exist but I can watch it from the UK after registering on the site.

I have inquired whether they have any plans of getting beyond the US - and the limited UK release - and they told me they'd be delighted to do so; however, film distribution realities will make this next to impossible, I would assume. I haven't heard anything about future releases anywhere else so far.
