'Too boring for a movie'… Is what some producers said about the possibility of taking his life to the cinema.
The legend of 59 years. revealed that his successful and happy career, both artistically and familiarly, was not what the producers were looking for, which led to the project being rejected on more than one occasion ...
In an interview for a well-known local media, Lionel Richie counted:
"A producer came to see me and said: 'this is the worst story I have ever read in my life… there is no tragedy at all!'
However, in the immediate aftermath of her second divorce, showed more interest in bringing his life to the big screen:
"The same person contacted me and said: 'your script is improving' ... basically he wanted me to take a fall in any aspect and then get up from it ... like the phoenix is reborn from its ashes. Surely that would be perfect for the story".
