It seems all the lives of our music greats are fodder for Hollywood films. There’s now talk of a James Brown biopic. The film would follow the Godfather of Soul’s legendary sixty year career, from his impoverished upbringing to his ascent to superstardom.

Tate Taylor of “The Help” has signed on as a director and Mick Jagger is said to be one of the producers. Both Wesley Snipes and Eddie Murphy have been thrown around as potential lead actors.

While I’m hesitant when Hollywood signs on to tell the stories of our legends, both Snipes and Murphy have the potential to do James Brown justice, and having another music legend on the production team (Jagger) can help bring Brown’s story to life.

What are your thoughts, Clutchettes? Would you watch a James Brown biopic?
