7 Reimagined Presidential Biopics We’d Like To See

Thursday, January 19 by

Between Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and FDR American Badass!, it’s safe to say there’s a lot about our former presidents of which we’re not aware. Of course, that might have something to do with the fact that the films are largely fictitious, but I digress. Hopefully the popularity of these films (how could they fail?) will lead to a new trend that kicks over the stones on several presidential lives.

The reimagined stories of these men run the gamut from science-fiction to action to horror to romance to drama. They deserve to be told.

William Henry Harrison

Everybody knows that William Henry Harrison died on his 32nd day in office. But very few know that on his 33rd day… he came back.

Returned to the world of the flesh with no memory of the afterlife (and completely cured of pneumonia), Harrison begins to experience strange dreams. The puzzling images in his dreams foretell that Hell itself will open on Earth. When new President John Tyler refuses to take action, Harrison must rise to the challenge, no matter the sacrifice.

Theodore Roosevelt

The 26th President of the United States was known for being brash and surly, but little is known about his past. Mistakenly considered a “sickly” child, Roosevelt was anything but. In fact, thanks to a unique gene mutation, Theodore Roosevelt was able to heal from all injuries at a rapid pace. This edge made him a talented boxer, much to the chagrin of fight fixers who hire assassin to execute him. However, given his ability, Roosevelt survives the attack whereas his bride succumbs. Hellbent on revenge, young Roosevelt tracks the assassin for years. Will he be able to feed the assassin his own blade when he learns that it’s his own brother?
