Live Crew Film in the Works

Can Lionsgate do for Miami booty bass legends 2 Live Crew what Universal's "Straight Outta Compton" did for L.A.'s own N.W.A? The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Campbell's favor in 1994, finding that the song's use of sampling of music for a parody represented fair use. This isn't just a victory for 2 Live Crew. Cyler previously starred in the 2015 indie Me And Earl And The Dying Girl and the recent Power Rangers reboot. We all know how provocative 2 Live Crew was during their heyday.

According to Deadline, the film, The Book Of Luke, will be based on Campbell's memoir, Book Of Luke: My Fight For Truth, Justice And Liberty City. Temple Hill's Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are producing with John Fischer overseeing the project for Temple Hill, and Mike Epps and Industry Entertainment exec producing.

The raw and powerful true story of how one man invented Southern Hip-Hop, saved the First Amendment, and became a role model for his disenfranchised Miami neighborhood-living proof that one person can make a difference in the world. Craig A. Williams will be writing the script, and RJ Cyler is casted to play Campbell.

With Tupac Shakur biopic "All Eyez on Me" opening in theaters this week, word is another controversial rapper's story will also be coming to the silver screen.
