According to Shadow and Act, casting for the film is underway and the network will begin shooting in early 2013. Kate Lanier (What’s Love Got To Do With It, Set It Off) has penned the script and group members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chili” Thomas will serve as consultants and executive producers of the movie.
The film is reportedly the first in a series of scripted music-themed television movies for VH1.
In other movie news, Lenny Kravitz has been confirmed to play Motown legend Marvin Gaye in the Julien Temple-directed project. The 48-year-old singer will play Gaye in his later years as he struggled with addiction and career woes.
The film, yet to be titled, will begin production next year.
