Hot on the heels of BET’s The New Edition Story, people have been dying to see another TV movie about their favorite ’90s R&B group. Now it seems ’90s girl group Xscape will be next, but unfortunately the original members are not happy about it.

Turns out  TV One is working on an unauthorized biopic about the group with So So Def founder Jermaine Dupri, but members – Kandi Burruss Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott – have no input on the TV film.

TV One made the announcement during their Upfront’s in NYC last week. We’re told the success of the group’s “Unsung” episode – which received the highest ratings of any episode in the show’s nine seasons – had a lot to do with it.

On May 1, the ladies issued a statement about the project expressing their disappointment.

“We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing,” the group said in a statement. “We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”

 

But it looks like they will be working on their own TV movie. In the same statement, they also announced that they will be working with Mona Scott-Young’s Monami Entertainment to produce their own biopic.

“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world. This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape.

Earlier this year, the group shocked fans with news that they were reuniting. The group had massive success with three consecutive platinum albums and six top 10 hits on the Billboard charts.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
