-- Finally the resurgence of good biopic movies are upon us. Some of the most iconic films in history were based on real individuals that contributed to how we see certain topics. Whether they are films such as Lincoln, The Titanic, Ray, Walk The Line, Howard Hughes, Buddy Holly or you name it, these historical figures and events allow the average person to really get to know the unbelievable contributors that we have all been fortunate enough to hear or read about in our life time. They have left their legacy behind and that is what inspires people. These are the films that drive us to dream big and never surrender.
Since the debut of 12 Years A Slave in 2013 by Solomon Northup, we have seen a rise in the biopic genre such as James Brown, the upcoming film of Jimi Hendrix, and The Jersey Boys. Now slated are biopics of Richard Pryor and The Ramones directed by Martin Scorsese.
My favorite biopic of all that has just been announced is Legend: The Bob Marley Story. I recently sat down with the production company, Da Vinci Filmworks who is taking on this epic musician’s tale. “It is going to be a movie like you have never experienced”
said Da Vinci Filmworks president Bobby Collins. “Bob Marley had such as unique story and struggle behind his life in order for him to have achieved what he did. His music is timeless and it was all about uniting all ages and races together while injecting so much love into the earth with his music and passion. We look forward to re-introducing this man to the world with a film that Bob himself would be proud of.”
Currently the production company are getting ready to start casting for this upcoming feature film. This movie will be filled with timeless music and no doubt a stellar cast. I for one will be in line to see it on the big screen.
