In quite interesting news, Fox’s Lucas Webb has motioned to produce a biopic on the Scottish singer Susan Boyle, who amazed the world on her appearance on Britain’s Got Talent several years ago
Here is the story
My questions are who should direct such a biopic? I can see someone like Rob Marshall or Taylor Hackford going for this.
But more importantly, who would play Boyle? My mind is to a loss as to who can bring such an iconic story to the screen.

Streep as Boyle. I’m only half kidding.November 25, 2012 at 10:53 am #75690
Elaine C. Smith? (she’s playing her in the musical)November 25, 2012 at 10:54 am #75691
Glenn Close.November 25, 2012 at 10:58 am #75692
Jennifer Lawrence or Anne Hathaway.November 25, 2012 at 11:09 am #75694
Lol, I’m not serious. But would to see the transformation from the lady that is chosen to the play this baitylicious part.November 25, 2012 at 11:26 am #75695
Whoever it is, they will certaintly be a Best Actress contender. If it is Glenn Close (who I’m skeptical about) I could see her winning her overdue OscarNovember 25, 2012 at 11:41 am #75698
How about Toby Jones?November 25, 2012 at 11:43 am #75699
Boyle is indeed talented and all, but what the hell has she done that deserves a biopic? I’d much rather see a legit biopic of recent icons like Whitney Houston, Donna Summer, and Dame Elizabeth Taylor (No that soon to be trainwreck lifetime film doesn’t count at all.)November 25, 2012 at 11:45 am #75700
Ooooo, what about Christina Aguilera? A little old age makeup, a wig, and BOOM- there ya go.
