Default Should a Bowie biopic be made?

Personally I would say yes that David Bowie should have his own biopic. I mean it has been 2 years since his death and honestly how a biopic has not been discussed at all seems to amaze me. However, it begs the question of who could even play Bowie in a biopic should it ever be made?

It's been done. Barely joking.

Sure, at some point. The man's impact on rock and pop music was immense.

Velvet goldmine is another movie that was supposed to be about bowie, but rights were an issue and wasn't allowed so they changed it ever so slightly, but it screams of Bowie - plus it features Bruce Wayne making sweet love to Obi Wan Kenobi.

I would love a decent biopic, there would have to be 2 actors to portray bowie, early years and later - i would say Cillian Murphy, heavily under fed would be great as would Tom Hiddleston.

Man, I'd forgotten about Velvet Goldmine. I've only seen it once, years ago on late night TV, but I remember really liking it.

Oddly I can picture Tilda Swinton as Bowie more than anyone else.

"Should" is impossible to say without having an actual script in front of me, but I'm sure it'll happen at some point.

Tilda Swinton is literally the only actor I can think of that has the right look and temperament to truly embody Bowie. And why not? I think he definitely would have supported it, they're both famous for their genderfluid and androgynous look and hell, Cate Blanchett got nominated for an Oscar for playing Bob Dylan so it's hardly like there isn't a precedent for it.

Fun fact: they tried to get Cumberbatch to play Bowie in the Freddie Mercury movie once.

Hmm, why not do it I’m Not There style with a different actor for each persona?

OMG, Tilda all the way on this. Bowie would approve, if he wasn't busy right now tripping out on LSD with Mozart and Tupac.
