Guaranteed to be more accurate than Lifetime's Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B.

One of the less damning emails in the most recent round of Sony leaks revealed the tantalizing possibility of a Destiny's Child biopic, pitched to Sony Entertainment by Beyoncé's father, Mathew Knowles. While one exec at Sony's Screen Gems worried that it may be "too soon" (which, fair), others "returned very enthusiastic responses."

Which begs the question: Who has what it takes to play DC on the big screen? Once you imagine the possibilities, there's no going back. Here are our picks.

Erica Hubbard as LaTavia Roberson

The actress from BET's Let's Stay Together bears a striking resemblance to the one-time Destiny's Child member, who was removed from the group along with LeToya Luckett in a film-friendly early drama.

Leona Lewis as Farrah Franklin

Lewis made her film debut earlier this year in the British film Walking on Sunshine, and she'd be a natural fit for Farrah Franklin, who joined DC at the same time as Michelle Williams but left abruptly five months later.

Brandy as Michelle Williams

Brandy and Destiny's Child undoubtedly ran into each other at awards shows and concerts during the late '90s/early '00s, making this casting all the more personal.

Pam Grier as Tina Knowles

Original badass Pam Grier has what it takes to play the woman who crafted DC's most iconic looks, from head-to-toe denim to rhinestone-studded jumpsuits.

Ving Rhames as Mathew Knowles

It's all in the power of the mustache, for Mathew, who, after shepherding the group in the first section of the movie, inevitably becomes the villain of the story.

Jessica Lucas as Beyoncé Knowles

While playing Bey is almost as difficult as being Bey, Gracepoint's Jessica Lucas has the fresh-faced beauty and broad smile to portray pop's First Lady. She could learn a thing or two from this amazing YouTube impersonator.
