This morning, I learned that a Sam Cooke biopic is in the works. In fact, a script has already been written (by the screenwriters who penned Julie Taymor’s Across The Universe, and The Commitments - Dick Clement and Ian Le Frenais) – an adaptation of Peter Guralnick’s 2005 bio Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke.
The news comes 4 years after author Guralnick produced the award-winning documentary Sam Cooke: Legend, said to be “the only authorized documentary on Cooke.”
The upcoming film will reportedly cover Cooke’s entire life (born in 1931, killed in 1964).
