There's been a Martin Luther King biopic set up at DreamWorks for awhile, and it looks like it's actually gaining some traction and moving forward. According to The Wrap, Jamie Foxx is in talks to star in the film with Oliver Stone planning to direct. If this team up happens it will be the first time the two have worked together since 1999's Any Given Sunday.
Steven Spielberg is producing the movie, and it features a screenplay written by Kario Salem (The Score, Killing Zoe). The story will follow the life of King and this film will be the first to be authorized by King's estate. The producers even have the right to utilize King's intellectual property, including his famous "I Have a Dream" speech delivered during the 1963 March on Washington, to create a definitive portrait of his life.
This is some big, solid talent, and if the team up happens there's no doubt we'll get a solidly well-made Martin Luther King Biopic. What do you think about the possibility of Foxx and Stone working on this movie?
