Before we go any further: the Blacklist collates scripts and screenplays that have been floating, un-produced, around Hollywood, and occasionally ranks them in order of how liked the potential film is. This process has previously brought us hit films Argo, Juno, and The King's Speech, to name a few.

Currently topping the list now? A biopic about Michael Jackson's chimpanzee companion, Bubbles, which is simply titled Bubbles. Here's the premise for the film:

A baby chimp is adopted by the pop star Michael Jackson. Narrating his own story, Bubbles the Chimp details his life within The King of Pop’s inner circle through the scandals that later rocked Jackson’s life and eventually led to Bubbles’ release.

I emboldened the "Narrating his own story" part because that means that Bubbles must, you know, talk in the film, which just adds that mad novel touch to it all.
