Conor McGregor will soon be adding silver screen star to his list of accolades. 

The MMA icon is about to find success outside of the octagon, as Universal Studios has just leaked a teaser trailer for an upcoming biopic all about the Irish star. 

The film, aptly titled Notorious, is set to still be in the filming process, to capture the hugely anticipated McGregor vs Mayweather fight. 

'History. All left when I'm gone,' begins a speech by Conor in the trailer. 

The film was shot over four years, and is set to document his explosive career and humble beginnings. 

'Notorious is the exclusive, all-access account of Conor’s meteoric rise from claiming benefits and living in his parent’s spare room in Dublin to claiming multiple championship UFC belts and seven figure pay-packets in Las Vegas,' reads the film's description. 

'Featuring unprecedented access, never before seen moments and explosive fight footage, this is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at a sporting icon and his spectacular rise from the bottom to the very top.'

There is no word yet on when the film will be out, but we can already tell it will be a box office breakthrough. 


So, we're a tad confused about how this movie will turn out!

Ed Sheeran has spoken out about his desire to shoot a biopic based on his life and growing up in his hometown of Ipswich.

Speaking to Q recently, the singer said: "I want to have an 8 Mile moment but 8 Mile meets Notting Hill.

"Not gritty like Detroit but, like, Ipswich. I've got loads of songs about Ipswich that haven't come out so I could make a soundtrack."

But this isn't a new idea as he spoke to The Sun back in March about finding a filmmaker he really loved.

Ed basically told the publication the same thing, but instead used Once as a reference instead of 8 Mile.

"I look at a film like Notting Hill and I think that's like a brilliant benchmark, or Once. So if you were to mix Notting Hill with Once, I would say that would be a good start," he told The Sun.

"I am in talks with one filmmaker that I really love and we are going to slowly but surely put something together.

"I would want to cast all unknowns. I want to have a low-budget, indie, British-made film."

It looks like Ed is pretty serious about this!


We'll admit, back in the day Britney Spears was a total idol.

We all wanted to be like America's sweetheart… well, that is until her 2007 meltdown, but we all have rough times, eh?

She's been through her fair share of ups and downs, and now a movie is being made about her fall from grace.

According to Cosmo, the biopic is set to air on Lifetime in February, however, the woman herself has not given her blessing.

We'll admit that we'll watch the movie for our own guilty pleasure, however people are freaking over the cast.

Natasha Bassett will play Brit, while Nathan Keyes will take on the role of Justin Timberlake. Clayton Chitty has also been cast to play her ex-hubby, Kevin Federline.

Many have taken to Twitter to show their shock about the casting, because… well, it looks nothing like her:



We're excited for this one!

Kristen Stewart is all set to play fashion house founder, Coco Chanel in a new movie which will be directed by Karl Lagerfeld. 

The short film which will premiere at the Metiers d'Arts show in Rome in December will see Kristen depict an actress who is preparing to play Coco for a movie in the short film.

How meta. 

But it really is no wonder that there is a little twist as Karl Lagerfeld is known for producing the shock factor. 

Women's Wear Daily website reports that the film will be "a fictional, behind-the-scenes look at a yet-to-be-made biopic about founder Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel," starring Stewart as a young Chanel alongside actress Geraldine Chapline, who has also portrayed the fashion house founder in previous biopic films".

Karl, the creative director of Chanel, hired Kristen after she reportedly impressed him in the initial stages of the auditions. 

He revealed that the Twilight actress played the role "really, really mean". 

"You only see her in tests and she's complaining about everything. She's mean with the director, mean with the producer."

Kristen is no stranger to Chanel though, as she has modelled for some of their major campaigns, as well as sitting front row at many of their fashion week runway shows.

Mr Lagerfeld conceived the plot, dialogue, costumes and casting, also convincing Harper’s Bazaar editor Laura Brown to portray an American journalist.

“They make so many movies about Chanel, why can’t I make one?” he shrugged.

We think this is going to be interesting!



Brittany Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti is really not happy about the biopic about his late daughter. He took to Twitter to voice his opinion after cringing while watching the trailer.

“I am disgusted and outraged that Lifetime decided to produce such a trashy project, defiling the memory of my beautiful, talented daughter, Brittany Murphy.”

“Lifetime’s casting was atrocious, Amanda Fuller, the girl playing Brittany, looks absolutely nothing like her. Everyone looks ridiculous in their bad wigs and the dialogue is nauseating.”

“#brttanymurphy would have been MORTIFIED if she knew what a mockery they made of her life and her gorgeous looks and talent. #unauthorized”

Amanda Fuller has replied to the comments in a recent interview and said she has had to block Brittany’s dad from Twitter:

“He can do what he wants. But I just think it is interesting that the minute she is back in the press he is all about, ‘I am going to sue’ and all that stuff. If he really respected his daughter's memory then I don't know if he would be trying to make all this controversy about it. Let her rest in peace.

“It is what it is. All of our hearts were in the right place. I had two days to prepare.

“I would have loved to have months of preparation and time to get down to a really skinny body so I could portray her physically better.

“We would have loved to have had more money and more time for vocal lessons and stuff like that. But in the end, I think it became less of it being a look-alike piece and more about just trying to capture the essence of who she was.”

While it can’t blame Angelo for being upset at what he sees as an inaccurate portrayal of his daughter, we really feel sorry for Amanda Fuller! It can’t be easy getting that kind of abuse when you’ve done your best! 



The makers of the biopic about Linda Lovelace (starring Amanda Seyfried) were in a bit of bother recently, after allegations of copyright infringement were made by the makers of the 70s porn film Deep Throat.

Linda Lovelace starred in Deep Throat, so obviously the 2013 biopic, which told the story of the star, would have some similar scenes. However, Arrow Productions, who own the rights to Deep Throat, said they went too far by copying exact camera angles, lighting, costumes and settings.

US District Judge Thomas Griesa didn’t agree though. After close examination of three scenes, including the famous Deep Throat scene where Lovelace performs oral sex on her doctor (every day is different when you’re a judge!), he decided that the biopic scene didn’t “copy any more than necessary to achieve its creative purposes.”

He said the biopic “removed the sexually explicit part of Dr. Young’s physical examination as well as the famous pornographic scene”, and they also focused more on Linda’s lack of sexual experience.



It’s hard to imagine what a movie about the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll made by one of Hollywood’s zaniest directors would look like!

Well, it might not be long before we find out, as Baz Luhrmann is in talks to direct an Elvis Presley biopic.

The Romeo and Juliet movie-maker has been in negotiations with Warner Bros about depicting the life of the iconic singer on the silver screen.

The studio has also secured full rights to the Love Me Tender singers’ entire back catalogue for the movie. And that’s not all – Fifty Shades of Grey writer Kelly Marcel is working on an original screenplay for the film.

It’s yet to be revealed what period of Elvis’ life the movie will depict before his death in 1977 aged 42.

Baz has a number of projects in the pipeline, including the highly-anticipated Kung Fu movie, but the director hasn’t revealed what he’ll start work on first.
