Published Feb 09, 2018The story of Gucci Mane is headed to the big screen, as it's been revealed the rapper is getting his very own biopic.
Gucci's recent book, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, is being transformed into a feature-length film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
While details are so far slim, the biopic will come via Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, which produces the Empire and was behind the Eminem movie 8 Mile. Imagine's Brian Grazer and Erica Huggins will produce the upcoming film, while Todd Moskowitz and Gucci himself will act as executive producers.
The Autobiography of Gucci Mane was written by both Gucci Mane himself and former XXL music editor Neil Martinez-Belkin. It was initially accompanied with the following description:
For the first time Gucci Mane tells his story in his own words. In his extraordinary autobiography, the legend takes us to his roots in Alabama, the streets of East Atlanta, the trap house, and the studio where he found his voice as a peerless rapper. He reflects on his inimitable career and in the process confronts his dark past — years behind bars, the murder charge, drug addiction, career highs and lows — the making of a trap god. It is one of the greatest comeback stories in the history of music.
