Kirk Cameron as CS Lewis and Mel Gibson as JRR Tolkien in a film about the Inklings

Update:
April Fool's Day!   I hate the day.

Well thump my pumpkin, this looks impressive:
Two of the biggest Christian actors are slated to star in a film about two of the 20th centuries most prominent Christian writers. Actors Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains, Left Behind, and Fireproof), and Mel Gibson (Lethal Weapon, Braveheart and The Passion of the Christ) are slated to star as CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien in an upcoming still untitled movie.

I don't know about calling Gibson a Christian actor, but still.  One thought that pops into mind is that both Cameron and Lewis spent time as professing atheists.  And Tolkien, like Gibson, was Catholic, right?
Other names attached to this film are Reese Witherspoon as Edith Tolkien, and Kirk Cameron’s real life wife, Chelsea Noble as Joy Davidman. Ironically, two actors who have already portrayed characters created by both men will also have major roles in the film. Sean Astin (Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings) will play fellow Inkling Charles Williams, and Ray Winstone (the voice of Mr. Beaver in LWW) will play Major Warren “Warnie” Lewis. The film is slated to begin filming sometime this December in Canada.

Awesome.
