I hear there might be a biopic for Steve Jobs coming up. What do you think of that?

(My sister told me.)

Strange as it is, I already have the actual book version of that biography (well, I have a copy of this book--and it's title is Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson. And most of the book actually seems to be covering Apple history--I'm on an iPad right now.)

I would have to go with Cumberbatch.

Sorry, but the Jobs biopic is rated PG-13. (So I'm clearly not seeing it now--I'm very picky.)

I don't understand. Why does the rating have any significance? I'm sure it won't be dirty.

Virginia's right. This is a biopic. It's not Family Guy or South Park. The rating is probably because there is some swearing, and I'd imagine drug use or suggestions of it (this is about Steve Jobs afterall).

A lot of animated films now are rated PG, and most films are PG-13. I'm sad to say you'd be missing tons upon tons of great films by closing yourself off.

Bill, you seem to be a big Biopic aficionado. What do you think about biopics being made while the figure is still alive? For example, this new biopic about Elton John. Is it right to create films when the subject is still around?

ellie-jessie-eve - I think it's absolutely fine; doesn't matter in the slightest. Frankly, I'm surprised it took this long for an Elton John biopic to come around. Also, in the creation of this thread, I postulated why there was no Edgar Bergen biopic yet, and that project is now in development, I believe by his daughter, to be presented from the point of view of Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer.

I wouldn't say I'm a biopic aficionado; I'm just a hard-core cinephile.

Time to revive this.

William Shakespeare, anyone?
