    There have been many great films on different European Queens. I’ve enjoyed many of them. There has been a lack of Hollywood films on different Queens/Empresses of other races. Who are some Queens you’d like to see portrayed on screen?

    Id say…
    -Nefertiti (Egypt)
    -Lü Zhi (China)
    -Ranavalona III (Madagascar)
    -Amina (Nigeria)
    -Empress Zhangsun (China)
    etc…

    I do know that many in the film industry read Goldderby. Lets start a campaign here. Who would you like to see on screen?

    There’s a book by Anchi Min called Empress Orchid about Hsu Xi the last Chinese Empress. It’s screaming for an adaptation. (So is her other book, Red Azalea about the cultural revolution.)

    Lililuklani of Hawaii deserves a biopic.

    I’d like to see how a wu zetian film made from a western perspective would be like, none of the chinese adaptations I’ve seen did any justice to her story

    Amina. Amina. Amina. No question about that.

    Especially these days we need a biopic about a powerful woman like her who thought hard to achieve greatness.

    Who would you cast as Amina?
    I do think Danai Gurira would be great.

    She would be great but I prefer to see a newcomer play her.

    I am sure Lupita has been approached to play Amina. I’d like to see a newcomer play her as well.

    If they’re going to make a movie about Amina, then a full blooded African should play her. In fact, a Nigerian.

     

    We’ll never allow a foreigner to play Amina. Not even Lupita

    FYC Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns) and Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) for best actress

    Mercy Johnson would be fantastic for Amina

    awww. Are you Nigerian? I disagree with Mercy though. She’s way too theatrical and not so refined to play Amina. Maybe they’ll just source for a fresh talent. Genevieve is good but will be old for the role
