‘Exclusive: Sony Emails Reveal Destiny’s Child and Kanye West Movies, and Spidey Cameo in Capt. 3′
There’s also some film-related news involving some big names in music. An email dated December 4, 2013, from Screen Gems honcho Clint Culpepper to Pascal and a team of Sony execs discusses how Beyoncé’s father, Matthew Knowles, went to him to try and set up a Destiny’s Child biopic.
“Matthew Knowles, Beyonce’s Father wants to make the film of Destiny’s Child and came to me first,” wrote Culpepper. “He’s going to Universal next. Do we think it would be a successful film? They’re on Sony label. I’m just not sure that it’s not too soon.”
All the Sony execs return very enthusiastic responses, although there is a Destiny’s Child biopic currently slated for February 2015 on the Lifetime Network.
NOW…due to the Aaliyah biopic being so bad, would you be here for this? I’m not sure how true this is, being that we had heard months in advance before the Whitney and Aaliyah biopics, and there were press releases when the movies went into production, and casting, but I guess only time will tell if this story holds any merit.
