A biopic about R&B group Xscape is in the works with the original members.
Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott are working on the project with Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta producer Mona Scott-Young. Tucker, Harris, and the Scotts will also be featured in the biopic.
The project is currently being shopped to networks, according to Deadline.com.
Xscape recently announced they are reuniting to record a new album and launch a tour after a 12-year hiatus.
The news about the project also comes after bosses at TV One revealed they are developing a biopic about the group. The biopic at TV One is not authorized and the group members do not approve of the project.
“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world,” a statement from Xscape reads. “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.”
In addition to the biopic, the group is looking to develop a docuseries about its reunion.
