Guy Goma found himself being interviewed on News 24
The incident involving Guy Goma is the basis for a film being planned by Alison Rosenzweig, who produced the 2002 Nicolas Cage film Windtalkers.
"If they want to do a movie, I don't mind talking with them," Mr Goma, 38, told the Associated Press news agency.
The unemployed computer technician had been at the BBC for a job interview.
But the graduate from the Congo gained worldwide attention in May after a mix-up saw him interviewed on air instead of Guy Kewney, editor of Newswireless.net.
'Kind of famous'
BBC News 24 later brought Mr Goma back to the studio to talk about the incident.

"He's a fun, kind of internationally famous person that I think is an interesting source for movie material," Ms Rosenzweig said.
"We're developing the project, and hopefully we'll be able to set it up on a major studio."She added that the amount of money Mr Goma could make would depend on the financing of the project.
