Hollywood is hot, hot, hot for movies based on real-life figures right now. And, fortunately for the rest of us, that means there’s plenty of biopics on the way that are already generating serious buzz. Who doesn’t love a behind-the-scenes look at a fascinating person?
Some of the fascinating people being played on film in the near future are inspirational, like Fred Rogers. Others are objects of dark curiosity, like Lizzie Borden. Either way, we all want to peer behind the curtain and see a more in-depth version of the person portrayed on-screen.
Even better? In addition to the must-see biopics we’re including here, there are more on the horizon. Many are in early development and don’t have a studio or a cast attached to the project yet, but you can trust that as soon as they do, this list will be updated to reflect those exciting endeavors as well (here’s looking at you, J.K. Rowling biopic).
For now, mark the dates for the following biopics on your calendar.
