A biopic based on the life of Gucci Mane is reportedly in the works. Gucci Mane tweeted that his book would be coming to theaters back in January and it seems like East Atlanta Santa was serious. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Guwop will be teaming up with Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, who was behind 8-Mile, will be producing the film.
The studio has gotten ownership of the movie rights to Gucci’s bestselling memoir, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, and will tap producers Brian Glazer and Erica Huggins to work on the project. To their credit, Glazer and Huggins have worked on films such as A Beautiful Mind, Mulholland Drive, Apollo 13, The Dark Tower, Inside Man as well as Get On Up, the James Brown biopic.
