More leaked emails from the Sony hacking scandal reveal that Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles, tried to pitch a Destiny’s Child biopic to the movie studio, but executives were reluctant.

An email from Screen Gems boss Clint Culpepper reads:

“Matthew Knowles, Beyonce’s Father wants to make the film of Destiny’s Child and came to me first,” Culpepper wrote onDecember 4, 2013. “He’s going to Universal next. Do we think it would be a successful film? They’re on Sony label. I’m just not sure that it’s not too soon.”

While the film didn’t get a green light, The Daily Mail is reporting that a Destiny’s Child biopic is currently slated for February 2015 on the Lifetime Network.

As for the Kanye West project, the rapper’s creative assistant Elon Rutberg emailed Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, on August 4, 2014 about a potential project.

“I supervise all of Kanye’s film and media projects, and we have a major film project coming up that involves both cinematic and technological innovation, so I naturally thought Sony and wanted to reach out,” wrote Rutberg. “We premiered a multi-screen cinema experience to great response at Cannes 2012, and are looking to take the storytelling to the next level with a feature length film, shot for an immersive cinema experience.”

No word on if Amy had interests in the project or not.

It’s been a rough week for Pascal and Culpepper who have had dozens of private emails leaked that include calling Kevin Hart a “whore,” and President Barack Obama a lover of slave movies and anything with a Black cast.

Audio was released from the song and on it, Snoop tackles Colin Kaepernick and the current controversial National Anthem controversy. “The president said he wants to make America great again. Fuck that shit, we gon’ make America Crip again,” he raps.

During an interview on CNN, the rapper explained, “Certain people feel like we should make America ‘great again,’ but that time they’re referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation, so I’d rather make America Crip again.'”

He added, “What I mean by that is, in my lifetime, that’s when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead.”
