Stephen Port, dubbed the "Grindr Killer," has said that Kevin Bacon, Eddie Redmayne, or Chris Evans might play him in a film on his life.

Port is receiving a life sentence for drugging, rapping, and murdering four men he met on the hookup service Grindr.

Port murdered Anthony Walgate, 23, Gabriel Kovari, 22, Daniel Whitworth, 21, and Jack Taylor, 25, before dumping their remains near his house in Barking, London.

Port had long denied blame for the deaths but was found guilty of murder in a 2016 trial.

His case will feature a new three-part drama starring Stephen Merchant and Sheridan Smith called "Four Lives."

However, Port disclosed who he would like to play him in a series of emails to a pen pal obtained by the Daily Mail.

Port cites numerous Hollywood personalities who he believes would be a good fit in the letters written before his trial.

"Not sure who could play me in a film," he said.

"I have been told I look like a younger version of Kevin Bacon, so maybe him or Eddie Redmayne, and maybe the guy who played Captain America," he added.

Merchant called it a "privilege" to convey the tale of the victims and their "brave" families in the three-part BBC factual drama, Bristol Post said.

Merchant has also spoken out about his role. He said the police mishandling of the case was "utterly shocking," with leads that could have saved three lives being missed. Since then, an inquest into the Met Police's misdeeds was held last month.

"When I first read the script I wanted to believe some of the many police errors in the investigation must have been overstated for dramatic purposes, but they weren’t," Merchant said per reports.

"Four Lives" will go beneath the headlines to shed new light on this story by telling it from the perspective of the families of Stephen Port's victims, according to the BBC (via What To Watch).

The film will "shed new light" on what had transpired to their lost sons and brothers in the face of a now widely criticized police investigation.
