I would find a movie on Sir David and Lord Richard Attenborough's early life interesting. I am not sure many other people would bother to watch it.

Re: People who are alive today, whos biographies would make a good mov

Honestly...I'd like to see Obama's autobiography "Dreams from my Father" brought to film. It really is an inspiring story, and even if only a quarter of it is the 'real' Obama's life it'd still make a great story. Lower-middle class boy goes from living in the suburbs of Honolulu to spending several years in Indonesia as a boy to Harvard Law grad and President. Basing the story about the 'change' that his father's death brought to him while he was still in college and the confusion brought by having two very different racial backgrounds and trying to find his place in both. It'd make for great drama. It'd probably have to wait until he's out of office though.

It really is an inspiring story
inspiring story about a Chicago politician. Yoou got to be kidding.

It'd make for great drama.
I would watch it assuming its more machiavellian film instead of portraying him like some MLK 2.0.

You know, if you ask for someone's opinion, it's not generally polite to then ridicule them for it. Take the political stuff to TNZ, please.

PoSV was a great, if flawed, film. When Sony does the Bio of him based off of Walter Isaacson's book, I hope that they cast Noah Wyle. He was great as Jobs, so much so that Jobs had him come to macworld and imitate him on the stage at the start of the Keynote address that year.
