Birdman is planning to expand into the world of film and plans to cast his “son” Lil’ Wayne as the star of the upcoming film, Rich Gang. Details about the film are sketchy, but it will be one of several film projects via Birdman’s latest business venture, Cash Money Films. Check out what he told XXLmag.com‘s Shaheem Reid about the upcoming film.
“We start shooting that in the fall,” Birdman revealed in New York City during a book release party for Cash Money Content author Wahida Clark’s, Payback Ain’t Enough. “That’s the whole team, that’s like a 2012 Balla Blocking. The Rich Gang movie is about the team. Everybody is going to be the star of it, but Wayne will be the center of it. It’s about the team, everybody that’s on the label.”
Birdman wouldn’t reveal if the film will be scripted or a documentary style film, but his confidence in his artist as actors seems very apparent.
“I would like them for just be themselves. I’m not gonna tell no nigga to go to acting school. Just be yourself. We’re excited as a brand about it. Tyga, everybody is like, ‘Stunna, let’s do a movie.’ We got a few of them lined up and we gonna shoot them.”
