Report: Jodeci Biopic In the Works

Published: Sunday 5th Feb 2017 by Nehemiah

The success of the New Edition biopic left many in speculation on whose portrait would be next to be painted on the silver screen.

Now, news of a Jodeci film has arisen from one of the group’s members. During an interview, producer Mr. Dalvin confirmed the band’s biopic is indeed in the works.

To further plug the news, the 45-year-old shared the interview on his Instagram. Peep the clip below.

Me & Jojo up in the Bay Area..Yes the #jodecibiopic is coming!!!!! For all the casting inquiries, they will be announced soon… Thanks for the love and support ?

Well, ok then.

Though we’re in high anticipation, the forthcoming flick has a high bar to reach following BET‘s resonating biopic for New Edition.

What’s most concerning is the film is expected to begin production next month with a release towards tail of 2017, which couldn’t possibly provide an efficient timeline for a satisfactory final product. Or could it?

In any case, Jodeci is well deserving of a movie that chronicles their journey through the music industry.

Like their predecessors New Edition, the legacy of Jodeci’s music and persona is exhibited in contemporary male R&B. And with artists such as Drake expressing admiration for the group’s contributions on more than one occasion, it’s about time the new generation became hip – on mass – to this iconic quad.

Your thoughts?

    So is this the new way the industry is making money off of R&B? By making biopics of our classic artists…smh

    • Maurice February 5, 2017

      ??? it’s a win-win for both.
      the young ones get to know these artists, we get to reminisce, and the network gets paid.
      can’t wait for the Beyonce biopic. How she dropped outta high school and still couldn’t read for shiiiit. And what really happened with that Blue Ivy pregnancy, where her stomach went all flat when she sat down. PAHAHAHHA

      • 2bad2bme February 5, 2017

        You know a lot about her, maybe you should write the story line. Anyway, I wasn’t saying it was bad, what I mean is the industry needs to give R&B artists a chance and stop using white people to perform the music, making movies but not giving R&B a shot on the radio like they used to.

      O lawd anything the VHI touches turn to CRAP so this is going to be a fiasco! NO mame!

      • Credits February 6, 2017

        They did well with the TLC biopic.

    • Kayla C February 6, 2017

      Just need something to complain about

  2. Tori February 5, 2017

    They should really take their time and don’t rush out a movie just to capitalize on the success of the New Edition movie because it was DAMN GOOD. You can tell alot of money was put into the movie and promotions, is vh1 willing to dish out that kind of cash? Hell even Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart” movie looked like it had a good budget and she did great promotion and had great ratings. How are they going to filming in March and have it out before the end of the year? This isn’t a video, it’s a full blown movie!

    Yaaaaaas…SO many great artists and industry people will have to be cast to fully tell their story…Mary J. Blige, Puff Daddy, Al B. Sure!, Missy, Timbaland, Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Andre Harrell, T-Boz, Heavy D, Suge Knight, the list goes on!

    • 2bad2bme February 5, 2017

      You tried it. Lol all of those artist were not that important to their story

    • Fancy BISH February 5, 2017

      You must be stupid lol…Devante Swing signed Missy, Timbaland and Ginuwine! They lived in Devante’s HOUSE…it was torturous…they would go days without eating and didn’t get royalties! Missy and Timbaland did their first production work for Jodeci! Devante became jealous of the success Timbaland and Missy had with Aaliyah and Ginuwine after leaving him, Al B Sure! help write and produce their first album…”So you’re having my baby” is a line Al B Sure wrote about having QUINCY with Kim Porter, Puff Daddy gave them their look, swag, produced for them, Heavy D brought them to Andre Harrell, Mary J Blige was in a tumultuous relationship with K-Ci including domestic abuse, the whole My Life album is mostly about K-Ci, T-Boz dated Mr. Dalvin, Suge Knight signed Jodeci and Mary J Blige to his management and physically intimidated Andre Harrell in order to do so…I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT

      • 2bad2bme February 6, 2017

        You must be like 35, why you that hype? Corny much…

      • Fancy BISH February 6, 2017

      • Bug A Boo February 5, 2017

      • Bug A Boo February 5, 2017

        Relevant or relevent doesnt matter brandy still doesn’t have either

  5. MUSICHEAD February 5, 2017

    BET did an excellent job with the New Edition movie. Chris Robinson is an awesome director too! Here are the bio pics I wanna see:

    Jodeci
    En Vogue
    Mary J Blige
    Boyz II Men
    LA Reid & Babyface (LaFace)
    Puffy & Bad Boy
    Janet Jackson
    SWV
    Mariah Carey

  6. Trose February 5, 2017

    En vogue would be EPIC

    • MUSICHEAD February 5, 2017

      It would be like the Real Housewives of Atlanta lol.

  7. Jeans February 5, 2017

    FANCY BISH, ALL FACTS! Yesssssssss!!!!

    • Fancy BISH February 5, 2017

      Thank you, Jeans! Cause I was like,……….lol

  8. Shady81 February 5, 2017

    Janet is way to big of a superstar for a BET Biopic it just won’t happen. Maybe somebody like Lil Kim or a film about a comedian like Redd Foxx, or something she’s considered actual entertainment royalty, if she’s private with her life what in hell makes you think she’ll give them the authorization for BET to do a biopic on her, you must be dreaming.

    • Shady81 February 5, 2017

      Give BET

  9. Danzou February 5, 2017

    Then It’ll be boys to men next. Then color me badd

    • MUSICHEAD February 5, 2017

      Color Me Bad? They might get a bio pic on YouTube but that’s about it.

      • john February 5, 2017

        Lol.Lol Stop!!!

  10. RihYonce February 5, 2017

    I can’t wait !!! I wouldn’t mind seeing a “Hi-Five” biopic it would crazy because that group had so many tragedies ( murder, one of the singers got paralyzed because of a car accident thru were in)

    • #TeamTinashe Stan February 5, 2017

      I agree 100%.

  11. #TeamTinashe Stan February 5, 2017

    This is what everybody’s been saying.

    I would actually applaud the movie alot if K-Ci actually documents his domestic abuse to Mary J Blige unlike Dr. Dre. It would just show maturity and that he has learned a lot from that relationship and educates other men in the process to not follow his mistake.

  12. BOOBIE February 5, 2017

    We really don’t need or want this

  13. Jj February 6, 2017

    Missy and Mary

  14. Now at youfr best game way tuesidnz February 9, 2017
