Bio-Pics You Wnat To See !! And Who U Want To See In Them ??

Biographical films have always be some of my favorite films and always a good way for an Actor to have an breakout role (JamieFoxx w/ Ray, Denzel Washington w/ Malcolm X, etc.)

What movies do u wanna see made a bout a real life person and who would u cast in the starring roles ???

    i think in 6 - 10 years...an Obama movie will be made. Unless a better pick comes along, i think this is a dream role for Will Smith.

    Barack Obama - Will Smith

    Michelle Obama - Kerry Washington (Ray, Django Unchained, She Hate Me, etc.)

    Sasha & Malia Obama - unknowns

    Joe Bidden - ???

    John McCain - Ed Harris (A History of Violence, Aollo 13, etc.)

    Mitt Romney - Kyle Chandler (King Kong, Argo, Friday Night Lights tv series, etc.)

    Sarah Palin - ???

    i've always wanted to see a proper pablo escobar flick. don't know who i'd pick to play him tho...the guy that played him in blow kinda resembled him.

    & maybe an updated black panther party movie. or just a movie about the civil rights movement that doesn't focus on just one person.

    I almost ALWAYS hate biopics, especially on musicians...

    However, there is one that I just really need to be made already... Walt Disney

    The kid in me says a Disney produced feel-good movie,with the ultimate tribute of having it animated!

    On a serious note... there's a real dramatic story to be told, and an accurate honest portrayal would be real interesting.

    Alan Cumming/George Clooney/Pacino, I can picture all 3 in the lead role.
    There was a fake poster with Ryan Gosling as young Walt, and was just so perfect!

    A REAL Michael Jackson bio-pic, not that dumb Man in The Mirror bullshit but, who can play MJ because to me the only one that played him to a T was Wylie Draper, who played him in The Jacksons: An American Dream and ironically he died a year after the tv movie came out.

    A REAL Michael Jordan bio-pic, that bullshit they did with that dude who looked nothing like MJ was str8 wack, Michael Jordan - An American Hero but, who could play MJ

    I would love this, but I would want them to have their individual movies. I know they were all acquaintances, but I don't want anything to get in the way of their individual stories. I feel like a single movie trying to tell all their stories would not be enough time to tell about them fully. I think a movie just on the Harlem Renaissance period would be great.




    It might seem off the wall, but I would love to see a movie on Edgar Allen Poe, and I think Johnny Depp would be good at capturing who he was.
