Timothée Chalamet Will Do His Own Singing While Playing Bob Dylan In Biopic

April 11, 2023 / Posted by:

When Timothée Chalamet saw Austin Butler singing and gyrating as Elvis Presley on the big screen, he said, “Hold my… (*checks age*) beer.” Actually, it’s been a few years since 27-year-old Timothée signed on to play a young Bob Dylan in a biopic pic about Bob’s early days in NYC with James Mangold set to direct. But it looks like it’s actually going to happen, and Timothée is preparing his vocal cords for the role. Because the strength of a biopic now rests mainly on how long its leading actor can keep talking like the film’s subject after wrapping, so if Timmy can hold it down, he’s gonna be accepting his future Oscar with a nasally 60s cadence in no time!

Julia Garner, Madonna’s Chosen “Madonna,” Seems Optimistic That The Scrapped Biopic Might Eventually Happen

March 15, 2023 / Posted by:

Since the Madonna biopic was just a twinkle in 64-year-old Madonna’s (questionably able to fully blink) eye, chaos followed in the form of team change-ups and a competitive casting process for the role of a younger Madge. Though Julia Garner must have successfully completed Madonna’s voguing and floor-humping boot camp to come out on top, the project was soon shelved after Madonna announced her upcoming Celebration Tour, which put Universal Pictures out over $10 million. But when Julia was asked about the movie’s future on her way into the Vanity Fair Oscars party the other night, she kept it coy yet optimistic that it may eventually come to fruition.

Madonna’s Madonna Biopic Has Been Shelved

January 24, 2023 / Posted by:

I’m sure Diablo Cody is somewhere laughing her ass off (see also: replacement sucker Erin Cressida Wilson) at the news that Universal Pictures has scrapped the planned Madonna-directed Madonna biopic she attempted to help Madonna write starring Madonna-approved Madonna Julia Garner. Good thing then that after spending months alone in a room with Madonna trying to convince her that the studio won’t accept vibes in lieu of a script, Diablo knows that asses will come and go. If Diablo can’t find her original ass, she can just go out and get a new one. So it wasn’t a complete waste of her time.

Adam Lambert Reacted To The News That Theo James Might Star In A George Michael Biopic Before His Estate Debunked Being A Part Of It

January 19, 2023 / Posted by:

Seven Christmases ago, The Grim Reaper tricked Santa into skipping George Michael‘s house so he could swoop in and steal him away from us forever. And although he left some drama behind after checking into the Pearly Gates, his legacy hasn’t been tarnished too much. That may change soon since Hollywood might be producing a George Michael biopic. But once nuclear explosion voiced rocker Adam Lambert discovered Theo James might be up for the titular role, he immediately rang the alarm with his disapproval right before George’s estate had the last word on this matter.

Michael Jackson’s Estate Is Producing A Biopic Directed By Antoine Fuqua

January 18, 2023 / Posted by:

Deadline reports that director Antoine Fuqua has signed on to direct Michael, an upcoming movie about the extremely fucked up life of Michael Jackson. The question is, what kind of biopic will this be? A (truly) white-washed “he was the King of Pop!” version? Or a no-holds-barred portrait of a guy who (allegedly) did some really horrible shit? Sources tell Deadline that Michael will “deal squarely” with the pedophile accusations, but I’m not expecting much. After all, this shit is co-produced by the executors of Michael’s estate. And those guys weren’t exactly fans of HBO’s documentary Leaving Neverland.

Millie Bobby Brown Said She’d Love To Take On The Role Of Britney Spears If There’s Ever A Biopic Made About Her

November 8, 2022 / Posted by:

At just 18 years old, Millie Bobby Brown is already an industry veteran. She found fame at the tender age of 12 as Eleven on Stranger Things and has been in the public (and creepy Drake’s) eye ever since. She even co-produced her most recent Netflix original film, Enola Holmes 2, which she’s currently promoting. Millie just appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show and shared which career move she’d love to make that she’s yet to accomplish: playing the role of a real person. And according to Millie, she’d really do Britney Spears justice if she were to be cast as her in a hypothetical biopic. And it looks like she’s already really leaning into manifesting this since she’s been rocking the messy artificial blonde weave as of late.
