Veteran hip-hop mogul Master P is turning his life story in a movie trilogy. The rapper, real name Percy Miller, has unveiled plans for his own series of biopics, with the first instalment, The Ice Cream Man, documenting his early upbringing and the formation of his own label, No Limit Records in 1990. The title pays homage to his hit 1996 album of the same name. Casting is currently underway, with production due to begin next year (15). A director has yet to be attached to the project. Master P will follow up the first film with sequels TRU and No Limit The Empire, which will explore his rise to fame and his dominance of the rap charts in the mid-to-late 1990s. A release date for The Ice Cream Man has yet to be announced, but it won't be the only hip-hop biopic to hit movie theatres - director F. Gary Gray is taking charge of N.W.A. film Straight Outta Compton, which is expected to be released next year (15).
