2 Live Crew is getting the big screen treatment courtesy of Lionsgate. The notoriously raunchy group, lead by Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell, was known for such hits as “Me So Horny” and “Pop The Coochie.”
According to Deadline, the film, The Book Of Luke, will be based on Campbell’s memoir, Book Of Luke: My Fight For Truth, Justice And Liberty City. Lionsgate is moving so quickly that they’ve already secured Craig A. Williams to write the script and up-and-coming actor RJ Cyler to play Uncle Luke.
Alright, let’s get real for a moment. We all know how provocative 2 Live Crew was during their heyday. They had an album named As Nasty As They Wanna Be for goodness sake. So are we going to get a “safe,” squeaky clean version for the theater or are the gonna give us the real, raw unedited stuff? The streets wanna know…
Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”
Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!
After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.
“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.
But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.
“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”
And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.
“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”
You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
