Benazir Bhutto Biopic Already in the Works

Less than one week after Pakistani leader Benazir Bhutto was slain, talks began for the production of a biopic about the woman. The film is considered to be in preproduction, and the script will be written by Pakistani poet-writer Aqeel Ahmad Ruby.

According to Hollywood Reporter:

Aneela Khan, a producer with Skies Unlimited, was quoted as saying that the film's director "will soon be announced." As for who will play Bhutto, Khan said, "We have not decided yet. It could be someone famous or a completely new face. There are possibilities that some of the scenes would be shot in India, but we are not sure."

Khan added that "the basic motive behind this announcement is just to dedicate this film to Benazir Bhutto. The film is going to be released internationally, and we don't want to create any controversy with this film."

Wow, that was fast. I guess it's not surprising, exactly, but it is awfully fast.

While it does seem early, Bhutto's story does need to be told. Looking forward to watching how this develops.

This I am very interested in...I didn't read about her or her family history until after her death either, but what I've read is fascinating.

I agree Nitachequita, Shohreh Aghdashloo would be perfect for that role...She's a Muslim, right?

She's really a fascinating woman, which unfortunately I didn't realize until after her death.

Tacky. But that's Hollywood. I vote for Shohreh Aghdashloo to play her.
