#FMTrends: Ol’Dirty Bastard Biopic in the Works at Sony!!!

OH Baby We got a Film

*Starts Piano Keys*

*Clears Voice*

As I begin my karaoke rendition of “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”, a biopic is in the works with Sony’s Columbia Pictures. RZA will produce the project. He once spoke to Rolling Stone about doing an ODB film after the success of “Straight Outta Compton”. Rumors are circulating that the search for a director is underway. With hip hop being the dominate genre in music, Hollywood studios are greenlighting more films about the genre. A picture about one of the founders of the Wu-Tang Clan will be a welcome addition.

ODB is Perfect for a Movie

Most people hated the 2Pac and Biggie movies because it truly didn’t capture the essence of them. Straight Outta Compton was successful due to today’s climate and as a remainder of how things really haven’t changed.  A film on Ol’ Dirty Bastard has to pull no punches and be real just like him. This man would pick up welfare checks in a limousine because the government didn’t accept rapping as a means of income. He rushed the stage at the 1998 Grammy Awards after Wu-Tang lost to Puff Daddy. ODB even became a fugitive after he left a court-ordered rehab clinic. A month later, he was performing at a Wu-Tang album release party.

When is the Movie Dropping?

Well we just know that RZA is producing the film. He has directed The Man with the Iron Fists. No words yet on who plays ODB or the rest of the Wu-Tang. I personally will let you know when they start shooting the film and when the roles are filled.
