Also, that Alien remake/prequel has been confirmed to be a prequel, BUT Ridley Scott (the original director) is now directing.
It might turn out alright then, but I don't seen the point.
Some movies are just finished I think and Raging Bull should never be never touched. And the person who tries should get his face kicked in by LaMotta personally and I would be happy to fill in the gaps
Like you said, a good biopic can hardly have a sequel, or prequel. Maybe some 'making of' like Heart of Darkness or so would be nice.
Would be impossible almost to overtrump (is this the right word?) some classic masterpieces and would put the original probably down with it.
