Probably the most surprising choice on the list, but hey Im unashamedly biased.
Warren Zevon has the sort of cult appeal that could translate into a very unique biopic. Although not as internationally renowned as the other artists on this list, Zevon was very much a musicians musician, with his work being praised by everyone from Springsteen to Dylan.
I envisage a Zevon biopic being shot in a more indie style as opposed to a big budget Hollywood production which basically runs parallel to the man himself and his body of work.
Zevons biting sarcasm and warped view of the world could almost make this a comedy, but his story is one that also has its share of darkness and tragedy.
Zevons influence on other artists and in popular culture is one that is overlooked by many and I would love for a biopic of this brilliant artist to expose a new generation of fans to his wonderfully colourful career.
His ex-wifes book I'll Sleep When I'm Dead: The Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon gives an unflinching look at Zevons highs and lows and would be an excellent starting point to adapt into a screenplay
