Brigitte Bardot Fumes Over Proposed Biopic

Beautiful and reclusive French film actress Brigitte Bardot is furious over plans to produce a film based on her life. Kyle Newman, producer and director of the project, has hired his wife, actress Jaime King, for the titular character in the unauthorized film. "A film about my life? But I'm not dead!" Bardot commented on French radio. "They wouldn't dare do it without talking to me. If they do, sparks will fly." Sparks will fly? Is that it? No one will die or be maimed or harmed in the filming of this biopic? Newman and King, I saw, GO FOR IT! Make the movie of flying sparks are the only reason threats that Bardot can make.
Bardot may be reclusive, but she is not without controversy. The blonde bombshell left her film career behind back in 1973 to become an animal rights activist and she has generated heat from her comments on topics such as French immigration and race-mixing to homosexuality and Islam. She has been fined five times for "inciting racial hatred."
Should this film follow Bardot's bombshell period or her crazy old lady period?
