Are you ready to see Gucci Mane’s life play out on the big screen?

Paramount Pictures is teaming up with Imagine Entertainment, the company responsible for  Eminem’s ‘8 Mile’, to adapt The Autobiography of Gucci Mane.

via THR:

The studio has retained the life rights to Mane, whose real name is Radric Delantic Davis, as well as the movie rights to the book, with the adaptation to be made via the Paramount Players arm.

Imagine’s Brian Grazer and Erica Huggins will produce the project with Mane and Todd Moskowitz acting as executive producer.

Mane is credited as the pioneer of Southern subgenre, trap music. The prolific Atlanta artist, who made his studio album debut in 2005 with Trap House, has released some 12 studio albums and 72 mixtapes. 

The book tracked his struggles with addiction, his feuds with fellow artists and his ultimate road towards redemption. He was born in poverty-stricken Alabama and was the son of a conman. His mother moved the family to Atlanta, where Gucci fell into a lifestyle of selling dope and gang violence.

Beginning in 2014, Mane spent nearly three years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. While incarcerated, he decided that music was the only thing that could save him from a lifetime in prison and was inspired to make music for the drug-infested strip club scene he was so familiar with.

He then began releasing dozen of mixtapes from prison with the help of his then-girlfriend, and collaborated with Migos and Young Thug, among other rappers. After being released, Mane received his first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2016, as a feature on Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles.”

We’re interested to see what this casting will look like. Who do you think should play Gucci?
