The Ramin Bahrani and Michael Shannon pairing is already shaping to be a prolific Director-Actor duo. Bahrani directed Michael Shannon in 99 Homes and recently finished directing him along with a stellar cast in their second film together, Fahrenheit 451, set to air on HBO on May 19.

Fahreheit 451 also stars our favorite new star Sofia Boutella, who we have written multiple blogs about.

Three Film Ideas for Sofia Boutella to Play the Lead in a Motion Picture

The film also stars Michael B. Jordan, whose character puts fires to books in the film, is actually the one on fire these days, thanks to breakout hits including Creed and Black Panther.

We suggested to Shannon that he should play Beethoven in a biopic, and we told Shannon of this idea in person, due to his uncanny resemblance to the late composer.

Why Michael Shannon Should Play Beethoven in a Biopic

Fahrenheit 451 is a film adaption of the Best-Selling Novel by Ray Bradbury set for a May 19th release date on HBO.

Bahrani is an Award Winning Writer-Director-Producer whose other credits include critical hits At Any PriceGoodbye Solo and Chop Shop, to name a few. Since his go to guy is Michael Shannon we’re hoping one of his next films will be the Beethoven biopic-play that yours truly just finished writing.

Sofia Boutella is next starring in Hotel Artemis where she will display more of her kick-ass moves.
