This movie would be epic. And very, very, very wrong.
(Hint: Kathryn Howard does not end well, either.)
Technically speaking, his wives went in pairs: 1 and 4 were divorced, 2 and 5 were beheaded, and 3 and 6 died in childbirth (though the sixth in childbirth with her second husband's kid, not his). It's a weird and disturbing symmetry symmetry.
I still wonder what about Anne of Cleves was so--whatever that he had to divorce on the spot. It's like the mystery of Philippe II of France's second wife, Ingeborg of Denmark; you have to wonder.
Also of note and joy:
The End of the Story, more period romance! Many period romances! And a metatextual examination of why we love them.
