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.
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.
