Leonardo DiCaprio might be playing Jim Jones in a movie

Yeah, there’s a family film.

I dunno, man. This feels like a story that might be better left to the documentary filmmakers (of which there have been several) rather than served up as a Hollywood biopic.

Or maybe do a fictional story about a thinly veiled stand-in for Jim Jones, like how Orson Welles did Hearst in Citizen Kane or how Philip Seymour Hoffman did L. Ron Hubbard in The Master.

Yeah, it does feel potentially very icky…
OTOH, somehow representing the real dangers of cultish behavior in a way the general public might watch does seem quite timely right now. :pleading_face:
