I know that the current poll has a few days remaining but since the voting has sort of leveled off I thought I'd comment on it now. With 35 total votes in, I'm pleasantly surprised that Diana Nyad is the person whom people would most like to see Meryl portray in a biopic. My surprise comes from not even expecting most people to know who she is. I had never heard of her until I saw that one of the black list scripts was about her.
This could still be a viable role for Meryl. A physical transformation in an inspiring story. As I mentioned in one of my comments, it would be cool if she chose to film this just after turning 70 in 2019, sort of a fun physical achievement to prepare herself for all the swimming she'd likely have to do. Plus, with already having completed The Papers, were she to do Nyad, I'd be two-for-two in the last two years in predicting which black list script she chose!
Make it happen, movie world.
