7 Biopics We Want To Be Made Next


With the upcoming Aretha Franklin biopic already garnering 2022 award season buzz, and the Twitter frenzy that Wendy Williams: The Movie caused, the stories of the famous and infamous are always sure to captivate audiences and draw in big numbers. We have watched and learned memorable moments from The Temptations movie and relived the highs and lows of The New Edition Story. The narratives that tell the story of those that moved and entertained us is a genre that continues to stand the test of time.



Here are seven biopics we want to be made next.


Diddy



Diddy, P.Diddy, Puffy, Puff Daddy, Sean Combs, whichever name he goes by today, story of the rise of super-producer, rapper, and entrepreneur, will be sure to set social media ablaze. From being on the forefront of the songs we have come to know and love to the heartbreak of losing people he loved, iconic rapper, Biggie Smalls, and the Mother of his children, Kim Porter this story needs to be told. To his short-lived acting career, to his passion and discovering new artists, a Sean Combs biopic will have heart, drama and triumph.


Luther Vandross



When discussing the state of men in R&B and the greatest to ever do it, Luther Vandross' name seems to be left out of the conversation. Dominating the 80s and 90s music scene, Vandross was a staple in households. With his soulful voice and electrifying stage presence, we still do not know much about "Big Lutha" or "Little Lutha". Stories have been told about his personal life, but nothing substantial that shows us who Luther was.


The Wayans Family



A story that shows us how the rise of one of the greatest Hollywood dynasties came to be, is sure to be a hit. Keenen Ivory, Damon, Kim, Shawn, and Marlon Wayans, are responsible for many great comedic moments, still, there is much to learn about the Hollywood siblings. From their upbringing to the creation of some of Hollywood’s most successful projects, it is time to learn more about everyone’s favorite family.


Martin Lawrence



Another comedic genius who deserves his story to be told. Martin Lawrence had one of the biggest sitcoms in the 90s and ruled the box office well into the early 2000s, with hits such as Blue Streak and Bad Boys. Lawrence’s standup comedy routines are considered some of the best to ever have been done. With dark moments that will be intriguing to learn about, to his resurgence at the top of the box office, learning more about the funny man will be sure to entertain.


Kobe Bryant



What is sure to be a bittersweet moment, a biopic about the late, great NBA icon, Kobe Bryant, will be sure to inspire as we watch a life cut too short. With a 20 year career, and a story that shows Bryant born in Philadelphia and raised partially in Italy, the 13th overall pick during the 1996 NBA draft, and Oscar winner’s story will tug at the emotions of many, which will show a beautiful life lived.



Spike Lee



"Do the right thing" Hollywood and announce a biopic of the revolutionary filmmaker, Spike Lee. With 35 produced films since 1983, the Morehouse graduate films often explore race relations, colorism in the Black community, the role of media in contemporary life, urban crime, poverty, and other political issues. With his candor and often animated lifestyle, Lee’s story will be a masterclass in filmmaking, staying true to your creativity and the power of storytelling.


Dru Hill



We love a good group story. The dynamics, the feeling of betrayal, the music, the comeback and the brotherhood. The success of boy bands in the 90s is unmatched, and Dru Hill was no different. Often providing songs that added to the soundtrack to our young love lives, the members of the R&B group, produced hit after hit. With not much news about the ins and outs of what went on during the height of the group's success, we have only seen the rotation of group members. It will be interesting to see the reaction to the group leader, Sisqo’s successful solo career and how the group continued.
