#Xscape LINKS with #MonaScottYoung for biopic! [details]
Xscape has become a HOT TOPIC again in light of the GROUPS recent REUNION. There STORY will be coming to the SMALL SCREEN---twice. All four members have linked up with Mona Scott Young of 'Love & Hip Hop' fame to produce a biopic about the groups rise to fame and their internal fighting that lead to their DISBANDMENT. Not to be confused with the biopic Jermaine Dupri is working on with TVOne. WORD FROM THE CURB is that the GROUP is NOT behind that movie at all.
This will be quite INTERESTING. From what we understand, JD owns the rights to the group name and music. If the GROUP does not sign on with HIS biopic, JD could EASILY block any usage of their music on the Mona Scott Young-produced movie. BUT WE WILL see how this plays out. But here are the DETAILS on the Monami-helmed movie.
“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world,” said Xscape in a statement. “This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”
“Xscape has had a huge impact on music and are one of the most successful female groups of all time. Monami Entertainment is honored to be charged with bringing the authorized Xscape story to the world,” says Scott-Young.
SHOULD BE GOOD either way, right?
