Audrey Hepburn. I know that one's already been made, but I really thought it sucked. :\

There's a biopic of Audrey Hepburn, is there? Well, that's nice to know.

A biopic of Dr. Seuss would be just positively terrific.

Especially since one of his great friends was my favorite animator of all times, Mr. Chuck Jones (he worked with Seuss on the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas! cartoon).

There's apparently a biopic of Sugar Ray Robinson in the works:

I'd be up for this.


Can't think of any biopic ideas lately. Recently, they've just been coming out, but I guess I'm having a brain block.

I think that a biopic of the life of Hank Aaron would be good. What a story. Or Jackie Robinson. Has one been made about his life? I don't know. But, if there hasn't, there should be.

Harry Truman. I think there was something a few years ago with Gary Sinise, but there needs to be an updated version. Eisenhower might be nice, but Truman for sure. I believe a Kennedy series with Katie Holmes is filming.

Walt Disney. Another good story. The Three Stooges need a better, more accurate movie.

One is out in theatres now about John Lennon.

I agree. We kind of give Walt Disney a saint-like status, but in reality he wasn't a good artist or even an animator. Don't get me wrong, he is very important in the world of animation, but what he did is controversial to most animation and film historians. Ub Iwerks is actually responsible for more of the artistry aspects of early, early Disney. However, he was a great producer, entrepreneur, storyman. and dreamer.

In fact, most animators of the day, even animators that worked for him, didn't like him.

I have so many ideas in my head that it's hard to remember them all. I will post them when I do remember.

One that came to mind earlier this evening is a biopic of Merv Griffin:

Roald Dahl, without a doubt. I know he had already written two partial autobiographies (Boy and Going Solo), but there's so much more to the deeper realms of thought and imagination that went into his work that would be great for biography. :)

There are actually so many great suggestions. My favourites so far are making biopics about Alfred Hitchcock, Walt Disney and Laurel and Hardy. :D I'd also love a biopic on Marlon Brando. That would be great.

Does Roald Dahl have a biopic? If he doesn't, someone needs to get on that. Immediately!

Almost three years ago now, Johnny Depp was announced to be working on a biopic of legendary surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, with himself playing the famed artist.

http://www.slashfilm.com/johnny-depp-to ... tled-dali/


I am beyond excited for this, as I am a monsterous Dalí fan. I haven't heard anything about the project since, though.

Yesterday, I got an idea for a biopic of caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.

Johnny Depp? Salvador Dalí? YES! I can even see that in Johnny's face. <3

I want to see a biopic about Jesus. We covered his birth (The Nativity Story) and his death (The Passion of the Christ), why not cover his boyhood and days as a teacher?
