I came across this question on numerous occasions ..... Should they make a movie about Bob Marley?
Bob Marley was sent on Earth and his purpose was to prophecy to the people. His life is an example of a man being on journey in search of the truth and he found it by the time he died at the age of 36. He wasn't just one of the artists who entertain, he was a preacher to the youth, he had such a strong message in his music that it is still or even more relevant 29 years after his death. He had a tough time at the early stages of his musical journey, but when the time came, he had the doors open. Bob became a major superstar in his last years, but he grew even bigger threw the years posthumously. It is amazing, especially now, if you look at all these one hit wonders out there who nobody cares about after a few months when their fame starts to fade away. The truth is that Bob Marley has never been trying to be famous, but he finally got there because his destiny was to become a great artist and tell the people of the world the truth. His songs never get too old and the more you listen to them, the more hints you discover. He was real, and I doubt that any actor can play him. His life was well-documented and told in his own words and by people who knew him personally. There is no purpose for an artificially re-created story about him in a movie, as it might be changed for artistic reasons anyway. However, his works need to be continued in reality at this present time in 2009.
