    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

    Audie Murphy-
    How this small handsome guy became the most decorated War hero of his time. Then later he becomes a very successful actor. Acting did not solve his problems, as he suffered from PTSD and a bad drinking problem that led to his divorce.

    Vanessa Williams-
    Growing up as a rebel due to strict parenting. Never felt love from her father. She would enter beauty pageants to pay for college. This led to her becoming the first black woman to win Miss America. Afterwards she would receive death threats and hate from both blacks and whites and her title was stripped when her nudes were posted in a magazine. She would make her comeback a few years later, becoming a successful singer and actress.

    You beat me to it. I was going to pitch her and James Wong Howe, the innovative cinematographer (and second Asian Oscar winner, first Asian winner for an English language film).

    For Anna May Wong I can see them condensing her early and later life and concentrating on the 1930’s and her struggle to be cast as O-Lan.

    For James Wong Howe, his early innovations would make for fascinating viewing, culminating in his 1955 Oscar win.

    Hattie McDaniel comes to mind first. I know that Mo’Nique has been pursing this role forever and bought the rights to one of her biographies or something.

    Madonna is another one. Margot Robbie has to play her! It would be funny/ironic if Robbie wins an Oscar for playing Madonna when the Academy could never be bothered to give her an Oscar for Best Original Song or nominate her in Best Actress.
