Missy Elliott: The Movie

by | June 14, 2006 | Comments

I think there should be a law passed that says the following: You’re not allowed to get your own biopic made until: A) You’re over 50 years old, and/or B) You’ve actually done something important. Unfortunately, Unviersal Pictures doesn’t ask my advice on these things, which is why we can soon expect to see a big-screen biopic about … Missy Elliott.

According to Variety, Universal "has acquired a pitch from scribe Dianne Houston based on Elliott’s life. Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal are on board to produce through their Gotham-based Tribeca Films…

Elliott has been in business with Universal before: She had a role in the Jessica Alba starrer "Honey." Born in Portsmouth, Va., in 1971, Elliott began her musical career with the girl group Sista. She then segued to a producing career before breaking out as a solo artist more than 10 years ago. Elliott writes and produces much of her own music."

So where the heck is Weird Al Yankovic’s biopic already? I mean, if Missy Elliott’s life story deserves two hours of cinema, whose DOESN’T?
