George Washington biographical film
Now I don't know about everyone else but it strikes me that a biographical film about George Washington is going to have a limited audience, although still a big one, America. Speaking as someone brought up in Scottish schools I have no real idea of George Washington and what he did as President, although I am aware he was a major influence on America.
The other Presidential film being made just now, Lincoln, is one that I can identify with as I know much more of Abraham Lincoln's life through other films and other stories, but Washington? Not really that much.
The question is how much does it appeal to a non-American audience and how involved are you going to be in a George Washington story? Are you aware of what he did for America, and would it strike you as a good film?
"Washington was the indispensable man, the physical embodiment of America's revolutionary ideals and identity...As we consider America's role in today's ever-changing world, understanding the man who had a pivotal role during the birth of our nation is essential...
...The myths created by Washington's remarkable achievements are so ingrained in our thinking that people forget he was a man -- an extraordinarily complicated man whose personal life was defined by powerful contradictions and passions"
Well he certainly makes him sounds much more important to Americas history than I, as a complete outsider, would realise. I think the difficulty for this film will be to attract the non-aware audience to the film and make it that little bit more popular.
