According to TheRussParrMorningShow.com VH1′s TLC biopic seems to be going full steam ahead. In what may prove to be one of Hollywood’s most interesting casting picks, rap artist Lil Mama has been chosen to play Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. HipHollywood.com got the scoop when interviewing MC Lyte at a recent pre-Grammy event. Lyte had nothing but high praise for her younger counterpart:
“I’m going to put my focus and concentration on helping a sister who is talented, smart, witty and just had her chances cut too short, Lil Mama, cuz that is a talented young woman. I want to see her do some beautiful things.”
Screenwriter Kate Lanier (“Set It Off”, “What’s Love Got To Do With It”) has penned the script for the still untitled project, and TLC’s remaining members Chilli and T-Boz have signed on as consultants.
What say you readers? Do you think Lil Mama will make a convincing Left Eye? Sound off in the comments section below.
