Dreamworks and Warner Bros. are in talks with both actor Jaime Foxx and director Oliver Stone for their long awaited biopic on the life of Martin Luther King Jr. Neither Foxx nor Stone has officially signed on to the project and at this point the talks have just begun.
Foxx is an interesting selection to play the civil rights activist. The funny man turned A-List Hollywood actor would do a great job, but is he the right guy for the job?
Other big names attached to the biopic are producers Steven Spielberg, Suzanne de Passe, Madison Jones and Sam Nappi. Members of the King family are said to be working as executive producers as well.
