Xscape and Mona Scott-Young Join Forces to Create Authorized Biopic
The 90s group Xscape is getting their very own biopic, thanks to Mona Scott-Young.
The girl group’s popularity has shot through the roof over the past few months. They’re embarking on their ‘Great Xscape Tour,’ making new music, documenting their reconciliation for reality television series. And now to top it all off, Mona Scott Young is helping the group tell their story in a biopic.
TV One last week announced an Xscape biopic but, the group says that film is not authorized. Xscape consists of members , Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and sisters LaTocha and Tamika.
“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world,” said Xscape in a statement. “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. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”
“Xscape has had a huge impact on music and are one of the most successful female groups of all time. Monami Entertainment is honored to be charged with bringing the authorized Xscape story to the world.” says Scott-Young.
Scott-Young and Xscape are currently looking for a network to back the biopic.
