Marion Barry wants to make a movie about his life before planned HBO biopic gets released

(WJLA) - D.C. Council member Marion Barry says he wants someone to make a film about his life story because he's unhappy with plans for an HBO biopic about him.

Washington City Paper reports that Barry spoke with screenwriter John Ridley and is not thrilled about how Ridley and company plan to portray his arrest for smoking crack.

Although the HBO film is still currently in development, Barry wants to finish his film before HBO's biopic is released.
