No stranger to biopics, director Oliver Stone is in talks to tackle another monumental historical figure. One that in fact changed history and our country forever; Dr. Martin Luther King. But who could play such an important icon?

Jamie Foxx is said to be up for the honor, which would mean he would be reuniting with Stone on yet another picture. The two previously worked together on the football drama "Any Given Sunday".

Foxx won best actor for his remarkable performance on another biopic "Ray", and has indeed shown his impressive range and acting chops. This would indeed be the role of a lifetime so you know he wouldn't take it lightly, should he be cast

Kario Salem ("Chasing Mavericks") has been working on the screenplay since 2011. Reportedly he's done a done a ton of research and interviews and received the blessing of the King family, so hopefully we get a historically accurate and real portrayal of the incredible civil rights leader.

Do you think Oliver and Foxx would be a good fit for this project? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
