Since “based on a true story” could be its own genre nowadays, I asked the BuzzFeed Community which real-life people and events they wanted to see get their very own biopic. From great writers to icons of cinema, renowned activists to lesser known royals, here are 15 of their pitches for the next hit movie or miniseries.
Just a quick note: Where needed, I’ve added clarification about the life and work of the people and events submitted. I haven’t done this for people who are widely known — for example, David Bowie or Bruce Lee. Also, submissions may have been edited for length and/or clarity.
