I think they should wait 10 years and get Will Smith's son, he's a good little actor.

Shame, I love Ian Curtis' biopic and I have high hopes for Kurt's biopic, I was looking forward to Sinatra's but I have a feeling I won't like it. It's being done in the same fashion as "I'm Not There" and I didn't enjoy that. I think it was the format I didn't enjoy.

Hendrix with the right director and actor could be brilliant.

Biopics are usually generic and boring to me. At least 'I'm Not There' was something different and interesting in concept. I would be very pleased if Sinatra biopic doesn't follow the generic Oscar bait route, but actually tries something different. (Well, I hope it doesn't copy the Dylan film either).

Sinatra biopic is following the Dylan route, 3 or 4 different actors playing different stages in his life. Boring.

The same actor playing him from young to old, like in A Beautiful mind.

^^Well, I liked 'I'm Not There', but it would be stupid if every biopic would suddenly started following that concept. But at the same time I don't like those generic biopics like 'A Beautiful Mind'. I don't know, I'm just hoping for something fresh and creative.

Hopefully, in 10 years, the rights concerning the use of the original music will be lightened up so that this will have the potential to be done right.

What was generic about A Beautiful Mind? Damn good film, apart from his being a little off historically.

I'm Not There was poor IMO. I don't want to see it again, but unfortunately I will. I was hoping Dicaprio would play Sinatra from being a young man to an old man.

they were names for PAST considerations.

as in, Eddie Murphy's name only came up in the early 80s when he was one of the hottest actors out there. still riding high from SNL and looking to establish some diversity as an actor. it's not like he was in consideration 6 years ago against Andre 3000. same with Will Smith, odds are the most serious talks happened just as he was stepping out of being the Fresh Prince of BelAir and starting into more diverse movie roles before becoming becoming the Fresh Prince of Action Heroes.

I will dig out my Bad Movie interests for this now.

Back in I think The Early 80's, there was a film by Larry Buchanan called Down On Us about the conspiracy of the deaths between Jimi, Janis, and Jim. To those who don't know about Larry Buchanan, he was a Texas-based film maker who specialized in films like the Trail of Lee Harvey Oswald (Dull, but thought provoking if you stay awake), Goodnight Sweet Marylin (Monroe), Hughes and Harlow, and others while not working on cheap flicks like The Naked Witch. The only film I seriously have stayed put for was The Other Side of Bonnie and Clyde, which was more photographs than re-creations making it more believable. Sadly, there was an interest in Conspiracies that did not match too well with his low-budgets, and on Down On Us, he created something that Bad Film fans consider jaw-dropping. I have not yet seen it, it's pretty hard to find, but I have a feeling that it's the Bad Film you're thinking about.
