7 Reimagined Presidential Biopics We’d Like To See

Thursday, January 19 by

Thomas Jefferson

Known to all as a genius, Thomas Jefferson’s mind was much more wondrous than any of us really knew. Able to crack coded messages with ease, Jefferson was under increasing pressure on a daily basis. This pressure caused his grip on reality to collapse as he began to see people and events that lived solely in his mind. However, the love of Sally Hemings, his Monticello slave, was the only salve that could offer the brilliant but fractured man ease.

Jimmy Carter

One evening in October of 1969, Jimmy Carter spotted an unidentified flying object hovering above the pines bordering a Leary, Georgia Lion’s Club. Two years later, he became governor. Six years after that, President of the United States. Though he claims that he doesn’t believe the object to have been an alien craft, this film tells what really happened that night in Leary that could propel a peanut farmer to the office of president in less than a decade.

George W. Bush

In a voodoo plot to steal the presidency, the Prime Minister of Jamaica gives George W. Bush a strange artifact. The small statue casts a spell on any who touch it, causing them to trade bodies with the first person they make eye contact with. The Prime Minister’s plan backfires when the president accidentally swaps bodies with the first family’s pet, Barney.

The president (now in dog form) must figure out a way to break the spell before anyone notices. To make matters worse, he also needs to make sure the power doesn’t fall into the hands of Dick Cheney. Based on a true story.
