Movies taken from real life: Hit
Now that we're running out of comic-book characters and old TV show characters to bring to the big screen, what's left but to take real-life people and turn them into movies? True, the lives of Mark Zuckerberg, boxer "Irish" Micky Ward, Aron Ralston and King George VI don't lend themselves to sequelization. But three-fourths of them are still alive, so it's always possible we could be seeing "The Social Network 2," "The Fighter Returns" and "Another 127 Hours" in our near future.
