Oftentimes we are given biopics nobody asked for and other times there is a groundswell of moviegoer support for then ( see bohemian rhapsody ). What are five biopics that haven’t made it to the big screen yet that you’d love you see (optional – and the actor to play the character)
Here are mine :
Oprah Winfrey- I can imagine this being a Lee Daniels Film , maybe Oprah up to age 35 ( when she made it ). I mean what a story !
Actor to play her: Regina Hall ( it needs to be someone less famous , but with serious acting chops , Oprah’s life could be very dark !!!)
JK Rowling – Her life story is actually quite fascinating and she is also an incredibly likeable person
Actor to play her : Emma Thompson/ Tilda Swinton/ Emily Mortimer
Madonna Biopic- I know one was picked up from the black list but it seemed to have gone nowhere , I think Madonna is a fascinating character and if done properly this could be quite rivetting.
Actor to play her: Sky Ferreira or Dakota Johnson ( I reckon it could work ) or Claire Foy
Mary Pickford – this would be a great period piece , I watched a documentary on Pickford she was a towering figure on Holywood and extremely ahead of her time
Actor to play her : Saoirse Ronan
Aretha Franklin- this would be epic !
Actor to play her: Jennifer Hudson
