Matt Damon is set to play Robert F. Kennedy in a new biopic. Hollywood biopics seem to be on the rise lately. I first reported about DiCaprio playing Sinatra, and then Marlon Wayans as Richard Pryor. So why the influx of biopics? They don’t cost a lot to make and they are easy to promote, as everyone will pretty much already know what the film is about. This will be the second attempt at an RFK movie in recent years. Remember 2006’s ‘Bobby‘?
