Run DMC story planned for the big screen
Hip hop legends Run DMC’s story could be brought to the big screen by the man behind the Notorious B.I.G biopic, Notorious.
Screenwriter Cheo Hodari Coker is planning to adapt Bill Adler’s Tougher Than Leather – The Rise Of Run DMC for DJ Classicz, the urban department at Davis Entertainment.
“It’s an extraordinary rags-to-riches journey that I’m eager to bring to the screen,” DJ Classicz’s president Dallas Jackson says.
“I’m hoping to have Run, DMC and Russell Simmons’s involvement. This will be a big movie about the 1980s hip-hop movement that took over the world.”
