Mike Epps is about to get involved with one of Miami’s most legendary Hip-Hop groups, 2 Live Crew. As Hollywood puts it’s eye on some of the most loved stories for biopic films; Epps is really to get involved. “Proud to be executively producing one of the biggest hip hop stories ever!”, Epps wrote on Instagram in regards to the announcement that he will executive produce an upcoming biopic on 2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke.
Lionsgate is working on 2 Live Crew biopic “The Book Of Luke,” based on leader Luther Campbell’s autobiography. The project is set up with Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey as producers with John Fischer overseeing the project for Temple Hill. Mike Epps and Industry Entertainment are executive producing. Craig A. Williams is writing the script, based on the Campbell’s “Book Of Luke: My Fight For Truth, Justice And Liberty City.” Campbell, who was born in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood, joined the rap group 2 Live Crew in the 1980s. The group saw its greatest success with their 1989 album “As Nasty As They Wanna Be,” which was ruled obscene by a federal judge before a federal appeals court overturned that ruling.
